Are pick-up game double teams weak?

Devin Booker took issue with Joakim Noah sending a double team his way during a pick-up game. Booker contends that people play pick-up games in the offseason to work on their game and passing out of doubles severely limits that. However, reading doubles is an important part of the game and you have to work on it as well as everything else. What do you think? 🏀

Ugh, the season is so far away. We're talking about pick-up game etiquette. Smh.

The offseason is a time where players work on their individual games without the pressure of having to perform in practice. Pick-up games are a great way to compete in a safe setting where they can practice their new skills in game situations. Double-teaming in this setting is weak.

Pick-up games are the time for these players to improve and they can't improve their offensive games if they're passing out of double teams all of the time. Players can learn that in a formal practice setting with the team.

Booker is acting like double teams aren't part of basketball. Sure, working on your shot in a game setting is important but so is finding the open man when a double team comes.

Players should be honing their game until training camp and not working on your double-team offense is a mistake. It's even softer if you complain about it like a baby when you're an NBA player.

If you're cooking a team in pick-up games you should be honored that they respect your game enough to send the double.
