Upcoming All-Star weekend is an opportunity for NBA players to get a badly needed rest before the final push to end the season in the best way. But, Phoenix Suns’ star guard Devin Booker thinks his team should have a different approach.

According to Booker, who will be at the All-Star weekend in order to defend his 3-point contest title, Suns’ “don’t deserve an All-Star break” and need to “work” on their game instead.

“We don’t deserve an All-Star break,” – said Booker. “We need to work on our game as players. I know me, I’m going to be at All-Star weekend, but right after that, I’ve got to touch a basketball and still polish up on things. I hope that everybody has that same mindset.”

Devin Booker is once again having a great statistical NBA season, currently averaging 24.6 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 6.7 assists per game. Still, these numbers didn’t translate to wins for the Phoenix Suns, who will miss the playoffs for the ninth time in a row.

The Suns could easily have the worst NBA record second consecutive year as well, being 11-48 at the moment. They are also on pace to win less than 25 games for the fourth straight year.
