"I looked up to K.G. and it was a nice court and I just wanted to keep the tradition going," Booker said.
So he did, and he is now hosting his own tournament with Wizards' teammate Josh Howard. The three day tournament is called the Trevor Booker & Josh Howard Tru-Ballers 5 on 5 Tournament and it kicked-off Thursday night.
