Devin Booker and Kendall Jenner are usually very secretive when it comes to their relationship, however, the NBA star recently opened up a bit to talk about his girlfriend during an interview with the Wall Street Journal.
The Phoenix Suns player was asked if it’s “hard for him to be the center of attention” in his personal life when dating Kendall and shared a very sincere response: “I wouldn’t say hard. Honestly, I’m enjoying life to the fullest, and that came out of my tongue so easily because it wasn’t always like that, but I feel like I’m in a good place right now,” Booker said.
“I love my family, I love the people around me, and I love the impact I can have on this world, the younger generation below me and the children who look up to me.”
Kendall and Booker officially began dating in June 2020 following weeks of romance rumors. They celebrated their first anniversary in June 2021 with a series of Instagram Story posts.
Booker talks about the last meeting he had with Kobe Bryant
Elsewhere in his interview with WSJ, Devin shared a story about the last encounter he had with the late Kobe Bryant, who told him to “be legendary.”
“It was the advice Kobe left me in the short time I spent with him in our last game playing against each other. He left it with a mark on my shoe and wrote it: ‘Be legendary.’ And not only did he write it on the shoe and sign it for me, but he also told me about it and explained the steps it will take to get there,” Booker said.
“Kobe has always been an inspiration, so hearing him in his voice and seeing his lyrics on his shoes keeps me motivated.”
