Devin Booker was not about to risk his status in the "NBA 2K" Players Tournament to make his Suns feel good about themselves.

Phoenix held a 26-36 record when the NBA season was put on indefinite hold last month due to the coronavirus pandemic. Booker, then, knew it would be a joke to use his real-life team.

That's why he reacted with laughter when first-round opponent Michael Porter Jr. said Booker should pick the Suns and let him choose his real-life Nuggets squad.

Booker, in his fifth year in the NBA, increased his scoring output to 26.1 points per game this season. He's generally remained hopeful that the Suns can build around him to become a contender.

The roster building clearly has a long way to go, though, and Booker chose to rock the more reliable Bucks against Porter and the Lakers instead.
