Booker set as heir apparent to Westbrook?
TheHazean.com wrote:Reports out of Philly suggest that the Eagles are grooming Booker to become Westbrook’s stand-in this season. He has the same shiftiness as Westy, and only time will tell if the play-making ability also is shared. As it stands right now, Booker is slated to unseat the talented but oft-injured Correll Buckhalter as Westy’s primary backup.
Booker, at 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds, is made in the right mold to be the next Westbrook. The coaching staff in Philly is hoping he can step right in for Westbrook without the offense missing a beat — that is, do the same things on offense that Westy does.
I am starting to buy into it a little bit, but I think training camp will tell the story. If he does stand out, which I think he will, he will be a must-own for all Westbrook owners this season.
