Good post, bro.
I was kind of upset in the offseason when I heard JJ was staying in Atlanta. I don't dislike the Hawks, or anything, but I really wanted him to go to Chicago or even New York --- Johnson, Melon, and Amare would be pretty sick, too. But I wanted it for miniscule and stupid selfish reasons. I'm from fckin Arkansas so it's pretty rare for us to produce an athlete with notoriety. I watched Johnson play in high school and even met him once. He's the best basketball player Arkansas has produced since Scottie Pippen (guess you could argue Corliss Williamson). I just wanted JJ to go to Chicago, win a couple of rings, and make a case to at least be mentioned as a potential HOF'er.
