Devin Booker thinks the NBA All-Defensive Team is missing a name

A player from our new rival.

While Phoenix Suns forward Marquese Chriss being named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team is dominating NBA headlines today, there are other awards to be given out.

That includes naming the NBA’s All-Defensive teams. 100 sportswriters from across the globe vote on the players named to these teams.

2016-17 NBA All-Defensive Second Team:

You know who thinks those 100 sportswriters got it wrong? Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns phenom and future of the franchise thinks those 100 sportswriters got it wrong.

Bradley received the most points of any player not named to an All-Defensive squad with 46. That includes 12 first-place votes.

In January Booker torched Bradley’s Celtics for 70 points in a historic performance at TD Garden. Just last week we were treated to the story about how Josh Jackson isn’t particularly impressed by Danny Ainge or Boston’s basketball history.

So while I’m skeptical that Booker, if pressed, would offer an opinion on who should not be on the teams listed above, this olive branch does not go unrecognized.

Also, Devin Booker does not speak on behalf of the players. Maybe that’s not a bad idea, though.
