Phoenix Suns rookie Devin Booker didn't attend his high school prom -- but he's apparently received hundreds of offers to attend proms at other high schools.

The 19-year-old guard who will represent the Suns in Saturday's Foot Locker Three-Point Contest said he was asked to prom quite a bit during his one and only season in college.

"I was getting asked a lot last year at Kentucky," Booker said Wednesday. "I'd say over a thousand times."

Part of that may have been due to the Wildcats' 38-0 start to the regular season in 2014-15 -- and the fact that basketball is everything in Lexington.

"Big Blue Nation, man. Back in Kentucky, it's crazy," he said.

So...did Booker say yes to any of the offers?

"I wish I could, but I'd be on a world tour of proms," he said.
