Amir Johnson
 
I remember seeing this guy in a dunk contest a while back. He's got some mad hops and seems to be a guy that will do some dirty work too. I saw him in one of the regular season finales agains Milwaukee and he looked like a keeper. Any word on whether this Pistons will allow him to take a bigger role in the rotation. He and Jason Maxiell should definately get more PT with Ben gone....

I would like to see them get more burn, but I doubt it'll happen. Amir has tons of potential, so I like his prospects. Max looks like he could be a solid roleplayer.

When the pistons selected him 56th overall in the 2005 draft, they knew that they were dealing with a 3-4 year project. With Ben gone, I think it will open up more playing time for both players, but I think Maxiell with benefit more as he is the most experienced and NBA ready player. I think Amir will go to the D-League again, only to be called back because a big man is injured. I hope he gets a bigger role because he has a shown a small amount of what he's capable of. As for Jason, I look for him to have a solid year. Also, i like Tayshuan to breakout this year.

Tayshaun gettin geven better would be a huge plus.

I think everyone is gonna step up their game, most notably Prince. He's gonna have a very good season. I like Jason Maxiell and i hope he gets more playing time

He should've gone to Louisville, he would have developed into a lottery pick if he stayed until atleast his sophmore year.

I'm under the impression he had issues with his grades.

If anyone saw him while he was still in high school, he put on a crazy @$$ dunk show, check it out on espn classics sometime

I played against him in high school. THe man was a beast at Westchester. He had that mix of size and athleticism and would always dominate, Id love to see him get more PT in the pros. I remember stealing the ball from him and on the other end of the court as I went up for the dunk, homie swatted me from behind and that was the first time I ever got blocked on a dunk attempt
