One of the basketball courts honored Booker and his father’s legacy at Moss Point High School. Tattoo artist Mr. Cartoon created the design. Volunteers also came out to help with renovating the basketball courts as well. “It’s an honor that people can recognize him and love him like we have,” daughter Katrina Stallworth Viverette said.
What was supposed to had been a small ceremony of 20 people turned out to be bigger than what was expected.
“It was supposed to be quiet and intimate, but it was a big deal,” father Melvin Booker said.
This isn’t the first time Devin Booker honored his hometown. Booker also has a shoe Devin Booker X Air Force 1 Low GS ‘Moss Point’ that was created with Nike that includes “Moss Point” on the shoes.
