As if you didn't know: Amir Johnson is tough
Amir Johnson may be the quietest tough guy in the NBA.
Johnson doesn’t talk the talk. He doesn’t brawl, but he doesn’t shy away from the physical stuff either.
But what he does do is play through more pain than most will ever know.
Johnson was at it again on Wednesday night turning an ankle severely enough that head coach Dwane Casey admitted he probably should not have come back.
“He goes in tapes and comes back,” Casey said. “He gave his body up to come back and (battled ) against Greg Monroe down the stretch and that guy is a handful.”
