Cheer Up, Trevor Booker

If I had to place Trevor Booker somewhere on the scale of out-going personalities entering the NBA (with 10 being Omar Samhan and 1 being Jarvis Varnado), I’d give him about a 3. John Wall would get a 6.5/7 if you must know.

Not a knock on Booker, he might have tremendous upside personality potential … or he just might be shy in front of media cameras … or maybe he just likes to give very brief answers with little inflection in his voice … or maybe he’s just too cool for school.

In any case, it doesn’t really matter. It’s all about what the guy can do on the court. And from the looks of a brief glimpse at a mini-camp scrimmage Thursday evening, Booker is not afraid to make his presence known.

Actually, maybe Trevor should get boosted to a 3.5 … he did give the media a laugh by saying that John Wall still isn’t faster than him.

Via the WaPost’s Michael Lee on June 27th:

Booker is an above-average athlete with incredible speed. Wall’s wheels have been well-documented, but did you realize that Booker is faster? At the combine, Booker recorded the fastest time in the three-quarter court sprint, measuring in at 3.10 seconds – or 0.04 seconds faster than Wall, Avery Bradley and Wesley Johnson. He’s at least 30 pounds heavier than all of them. Booker’s been compared to Paul Milsap, Carl Landry and Jason Maxiell, other undersized but gritty big men.

Otherwise, cheer up Trevor Booker! You’re in the NBA!

    He’s quiet…not depressed…duh! But u wouldn’t know that because you don’t know him…yet you think you can write an article based on a 1 min 43 sec interview…just dumb. I’d give you a 1.5 for your writing skills. Good Day!

    Let’s calm down for just a sec.

    The article was meant to be tongue-and-cheek and clearly not an analysis/assessment of Booker’s personality. And in no way did I indicate that Booker was depressed.

    So, sorry if I offended you … but c’mon.

    People forgot that John Wall hurt his groin before the sprint. If he was 100%, then he would be running under 3.10.
