The Suns superstar has gotten a bunch of support from fellow NBAers like Trae Young and KD …. who say when elite players are playing pickup, you shouldn’t be able to lean on teammates for defensive help. Defense should be 1 on 1 in gym games.

There’s a HUGE divide — we’ve been talking with NBA players and there’s clearly a hard line in the sand … some believe it’s straight “weak sauce” to double-team in the gym.
But, for Johnson, the bottom line is this … there’s nothing for Booker to be complaining about — “it’s all part of the game.”
