Johnson was born in Los Angeles and grew up primarily in South Central Los Angeles, though he also spent time in Harbor City and Watts as a child. Johnson struggled to earn a spot on a high school basketball team despite his height and athleticism. He split his freshman year between two schools (Pacific Hills and Narbonne), neither of which had a basketball team.
He then transferred to Verbum Dei High School, where he had a successful sophomore season of high school basketball in 2002–03. After that, he transferred to Westchester High School, but had to sit out his junior year of 2003–04. In 2004–05, he made up for lost time as a senior by being named Mr. California.
Johnson was from a sporting family. Indi Burnett was a forward for Southern University’s women’s basketball team, while Kevin and Kaelin Burnett, his cousins, were both NFL linebackers.
Johnson is very active in the community, hosting back-to-school programs, visiting local hospitals, and paying for low-income kids to attend games. His random acts of compassion are likewise well-known. Johnson acquired all of the copies of Drake’s Nothing Was the Same album from two local retailers and distributed them to random pedestrians in Toronto shortly after its release.

The Detroit Pistons selected Johnson with the 56th overall choice in the 2005 NBA Draft. He is the last direct from high school player to be selected in the NBA draught (until 2015, when Satnam Singh Bhamara was selected), because the NBA instituted a rule prior to the 2006 draught requiring American players to be at least one year removed from their high school class’s graduation to be eligible.
