In Monday evening’s pointless affair in New York, James Johnson was called for a foul against J.R Smith which he did not agree with. Johnson was pretty peeved and his coach attempted to restrain him, and Johnson’s response was to shrug him off. Or at least that’s what many fans suggested. As you look at the GIF and video below, I don’t think that “push” is intended for Casey but a demonstrative measure against the ref. Either way, Johnson is out of line but I don’t think this talk that’s surfacing about him disrespecting Casey holds water.
