- The Season's Over -

Here’s to You, Mr. Johnson

April 30, 2008

We’ve run out of superlatives to describe Joe Johnson’s incredible performance on Monday night, willing his team to improbable victory with the best clutch performance to date in the 2008 Eastern Conference playoffs. His stellar line of 35 points and 6 assists on 14-of-24 shooting from the field (including 5-of-6 from behind the arc) doesn’t even tell the whole story… but this tribute video pretty much nails it.

Celtics fans may want to avert their eyes.

Tip of the cap to The Big Lead for the find.

Well, keep in mind it was a pretty good move for the Suns at the time. He was a free agent and he was asking for more money than they could afford. Instead of just letting him walk (which he was going to do), they were able to talk Atlanta into an ill-advised sign-and-trade deal in which Phoenix got Boris Diaw, two future first-round picks and a $6 million trade exception.

That said, if I’m a Phoenix fan going forward I would like a team built around Joe Johnson, Shawn Marion, Leandro Barbosa and Amare Stoudemire a whole heck of a lot more than one built around Amare, Shaq, Nash and Hill.
