Devin Booker is out here in his usual time slot and putting the time in to get back. Not his usual pregame work, with most of it going through shots off ball screens. Did about a half-hour on his own after shootaround earlier today and 15 more now.

Monty Williams said Devin Booker was the catalyst on the bench in Portland on Tuesday when it came to motivating the team. Williams described Booker as “phenomenal” with that and said as the coach he didn’t have to do much pumping up the guys. – 7:30 PM

“I know what he’s going through and especially when you’re feeling a little bit better, you really want to get out there on the court.”

Book getting some work in after shootaround. He’s out tonight, but it’s encouraging to see him doing on-court stuff again.

Just got “By the Grace of the Game” for a present and have read the foreward by Ray Allen, the intro and first chapter. The book, penned by Dan Grunfeld, is exceptional. If you’re looking for a present for a friend — or yourself — I highly recommend this sure-to-be bestseller. – 12:42 PM

Earlier this year, Mirin Fader writes a book about Giannis, then he wins the title and Finals MVP.
Today, Mirin publishes a feature about Austin Reaves, then he hits a game-winning jumper for the Lakers.
WHAT! @MirinFader, who are you writing about next? theringer.com/nba/2021/12/15… – 10:35 PM
