    Default Everything James Johnson

    This guy's defence is going to be fun to watch. He already understands Casey's system so he'll contribute right away on the defensive end and the offensive end. He shows many improvements during the Grizzlies season where he learned to move without the ball. Going to provide a spark off the bench.

    He plays alot around the rim and is a pretty good finisher around the rim. In a way he's kinda of like Landry except for the high IQ and a better jumpshot.

    I think overall he's going to add more toughness to the team just like how Psycho did at the beginning of the season. Also adds some playoff experience not doing to bad with the Grizzlies playoffs averaging about 6.3 Points and 2 Rebounds in 9 Minutes.

    I Just like that he'll challenge T Ross every day at practices. Keep him on his hell. Ross seems to have a problem with keeping his motor up. With JJ ready to come in at any time he better keep it up.

    People here seem to remember a different JJ than I do. The James Johnson I remember always cheated on defense and had to get reigned in a ton.

    He does cheat a lot

    However, he is so good at recovering from his cheats, he is still a really good defender

    James Johnson is the best shot blocking wing in the NBA

    Masai got him for his wingspan. If you got long arms chances Masai will like you, he is a madman I tell ya!

    This will be a huge factor of having James Johnson here, Ross won't be able to just blend in and still get minutes. Also, the fact that Bruno has shown that he can hit the NBA 3 will also help to push Ross as well, Bruno might not get much burn this year, but he will be looking for minutes in the near future.

    Heh, if he is in the D-league still in a few years I will be surprised.

    He's terrible.

    You need to add a year to the end of that date.

    I truly believe we are getting a much more mature version of the JJ that we had before; and a JJ that will buy into the system from Day-1. Caseys system doesn't rely much on cheating or gambling the passing lanes, so assuming JJs on board, I think we'll get a far superior defender and wing-player than we had before.
    In Masai we Trust.

    I know the charge did not stick because JJ's wife was a no show in court, but Johnson was charged with hitting his wife in the face with an open hand before choking her just six weeks ago.
