Things got a bit awkward during the Suns postgame press conference after the team’s loss in game 5.
While fielding questions from reporters with Chris Paul sitting next to him, Suns guard Devin Booker was asked if he was frustrated for Paul, who was playing poorly during the Finals. Booker paused and then answered “next question” as Paul looked on in disgust following the reporter’s question.
"Devin how frustrated are you for Chris right now?"

Fans went on to blast the reporter for asking the question.
Not that he wasn't having it. The reporter asked a question to antagonize tension between the two. He dead it with no extra bs, smart move on Booker 👏🏾 https://t.co/ZpfJLkDlc2
