Devin Booker opened up about the Phoenix Suns’ unbeaten record in the “bubble” and their elimination from the play-in tournament.

The Suns won all eight seeding games (8-0), but were eliminated and will not fight for the last playoff spot in the West.

However, Booker was proud of his teammates’ effort, as they stayed locked in until the end.

“I’m proud of this group of guys. We could’ve had a different approach to this bubble, to this opportunity, but we didn’t. We stayed locked in throughout,” Booker said, via Duane Rankin of azcentral.

Booker and the Suns earned the respect of the entire basketball world, with many websites, fans and NBA analysts praising them for their tremendous presence in the “bubble”.
