Devin Booker has been sidelined for the Phoenix Suns for a couple of weeks with a groin injury, but his style on the bench helped create a back-and-forth on Twitter between the Moss Point product and world’s biggest movie star.

Booker, who was averaging 24.3 points and 4.5 rebounds a game before he was forced to the bench, is drawing attention for more than just his outside shot these days.

The Suns’ twitter account pointed out that Booker’s turtleneck and necklace bore a remarkable resemblance to an ensemble that Dwayne Johnson wore during his young days as “The Rock.”

Johnson pointed out that Booker probably has a few more dollars invested in his fashion choices.

Booker apparently has a fancy fanny pack coming his way if he wins an NBA championship.
