NBA Finals Bucks Suns Basketball

Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker dribbles past Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton during Game 2 of the NBA Finals Thursday in Phoenix. Booker said he learned what it took to be a professional athlete in his one season at the University of Kentucky.

LEXINGTON — Devin Booker spent only one season at the University of Kentucky, but learned what it took to be a professional athlete.

“I learned a lot from Coach (John) Calipari — just how to be a pro,” he said. “I was 17, 18 years old at the time, so you’re only there for — well I was — for one year, and that’s not a lot of time to spend on a college campus. But he’s trying to push the most information he can to you in a short amount of time and understanding what your goals and your dreams are.”
