Watch: Kendall Jenner & Devin Booker Celebrate Anniversary With a Vacation

Kendall Jenner is feeling quite invested in the 2021 NBA Finals. 

The 25-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum posted footage to her Instagram Story on Tuesday, July 6 as she watched boyfriend Devin Booker competing with his Phoenix Suns against the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Her video was filmed as she watched the competition from Phoenix Suns Arena in Arizona. 

"i'm not emotional, you are," Kendall wrote to accompany her footage filmed during the action.

Earlier in the evening, she shared a photo to her Story showing herself decked out in orange pants and shoes, not to mention holding an orange bag, in honor of the Suns' signature hue. The model also added a basketball emoji.  

Luckily, her support was rewarded, as the Suns took a 1 to 0 series lead by winning the game by a score of 118 to 105. Devin scored 27 points, while fellow Suns star Chris Paul led the way with 41 as the team made its first Finals appearance in 28 years.

These NBA Romances Are a Slam Dunk

Kendall doesn't typically share much about her personal life to social media. However, she has lately started opening up more about her relationship that began in June 2020, with the couple recently celebrating their one-year dating anniversary.

During the second part of the KUWTK reunion that aired last month, the reality TV star pushed back against the assertion that she only dates guys who excel on the hardwood. 


"No, I don't actually only date basketball players, if anyone's ever done their research," Kendall said. "I'm not ashamed that I have a type, and I'm also a genuine basketball fan."

She went on to publicly confirm their relationship for the first time by saying with a smile about the 24-year-old athlete, "He's my boyfriend."

In April, an insider shared with E! News, "This is the happiest Kendall has been in a relationship. It's getting more and more serious, and she is very happy."
