Maybe signing Nash and Fields was not a good idea, but trading for Johnson certainly wasn't.
JJ is a dam good player and who said he went 29th overall, he went 16th...why ppl hating on his offensive game? what u wanna see? lebron james style dunk, 3 pointers from halfcourt, jump from the free line throw all day...is that consider good offense to ppl when they talkign about how he lacked offensively. JJ had greattttt Defense and GOOD offense dont know what you all talkign about...wayy better than Linas Klieza, mr. brickcity european player who fell on his ass when he was trying to do some post moves. If Klieza could play for the raptors like how he played for Denver then I wouldn't care bout JJ but this is a BADDDDD TRADE.BC just trying to look busy so he dont lose his job, JJ is gona kill the raptors when they play the kings.
Why am I complaining? This guy is gone...too bad he would've done well this year for us too.
Yes yes, Kleiza is European, at least you got that right.
What do you like more johnson for a high second or barbosa for a low second
Whoever told you skies the limit is looking dumb because I'm 22 and i'm moonwalking on the sun.
I hate to rain on all the Johnson lovers parade but a high 2nd is what JJ is worth. This was a fair trade. Barbosa trade still doesn't make sense to me, I just assume it was the only offer on the table because it wasn't even a cost saving move, we had already paid half his final year.
So you're saying, paying Nash and Fields $56 mil (not $60 mil) over 3 years is a dumb move but paying Joe Johnson $90 mil over 4 years is the way BC should have gone??? Joe Johnson who will be 35 and will be paid $25 mil at the end of his contract is what I can define as having the "POTENTIAL to be MEDIOCRE and will never justify his contract". Most people believe Atlanta won this trade. I agree with you though that Brooklyn would be competitive because they had Wallace, and re-signed DWill and Lopez. With your trade proposal, whou would have been left for the Raps to play with Joe Johnson???
I'm still stunned that this is getting so much attention. 12 pages? It's only James Johnson!
