Talked mad trash is a huge overstatement, what’s this mad trash they talked? Booker joking with a fan Luka special? Mad trash?
Are you kidding? They were talking trash to him and the Dallas bench in Game 2 while they were torching Luka in the fourth.

And ALL of us were eating it up.

Maybe I'm in the minority but I cringed every time I saw them doing it. And to be fair, while we did far too much of it, the trash talking was NOT one-sided. We're the only ones looking stupid from it though, since we got our butts kicked.

Same here. Absolutely cringeworthy. I kept getting flashbacks of the Lakers doing it to us last year, and what a bad look it was. I was embarrassed for Karl Anthony Towns this year. I cannot believe we became this crap too. And we don't have a championship to back up our talk like the Lakers do. Disgusting.

Ehhh, they were talking trash and we responded not like we were a huge trash talking team. Luka is a trash talking jerk so of course Book will respond but it’s not like our whole team was trash talking the entire series like you made it sound. Pretty standard for a chippy playoff series IMO…

“They we’re talking trash” while getting their asses kicked in Game 2? No. In zero universe did that happen. And then we kept talking trash in the post game about our “revenge tour” as if the series was already over.

Booker is getting clowned about the Luka Special for a reason. It’s because it made him look like a total idiot.

I was on Twitter after all those games and I couldn't believe the Booker hate. Mostly because I have been in a bubble with this team all season long. Just a couple years ago when Booker was tearing people up and being called "empty stat" wasn't exactly hate. People just believed he was a really good player not improving his team.

The last two years? I have seen searing Book hate. Mostly people talking about him being arrogant, trash talking, flopper. I think that came from Chris to be honest. I think in some ways Chris has been a positive influence getting the most out of guys. On the other hand Chris has an ego and is hated by a TON of player in the NBA. It's no coincidence that Booker hate increased after Chris got here.

Booker deserved this humble pie IMO. Not because I think it made Luka play better (Luka was going to play great) but because you do your job on the court without being a prick to everyone. Karma is a @#$#@.

Agreed. If you’re gonna be a mad ish talker, in you can’t be atrocious in Game 6 of an NBA Finals Closeout game, and Games 6 and 7 of one of the most epic collapses of all time in the 2nd round.

They also were laughing at reporter at press conference because reporter was complimenting Luka scoring.


Suns players talked so much trash that series. More than I've ever seen them do. Think Luka being European was part of it
