We suck big time. Cleveland is the only team I can think of that is worse than us. And this effort will be difficult to continue when we are like 2-10. No problem with the tanking.

Did you watch the game?
JJ was amazing on the defensive end. He had 6 steals and 3 blocks not to mention the fact he had twice as many boards as bargs.
I know he's not European but come on dude.

I don't like the guy. He thinks that he knows more than the others and that he is the leader or something. I even watched him giving advice to Magloire.

As a player, he is not good enough to play in the NBA. I don't know what to say... he is not talented enough. Anybody can have a good game and make some stats.

James Johnson showed that he was one of the more efficient players with the Raps after he got traded last season. He might not be putting up huge numbers every game but he is a decent player coming off the bench. Hoffa didn't deserve to be in the NBA. JJ, does.

This just demonstrates how little you know about bball. I don't like to make it personal but come on. How do you know what he is saying to Maglore or anyone else? Anyone can have a good game in the NBA? Are you serious?

Your posts have zero credibility.

Yeah to suggest Johnson isn't very good is false. The guy is an elite defender. Very much like a young Gerald Wallace at this stage. I was incredibly impressed.

It's not personal... It's just that I sometimes like to answer to your stupid posts. This is a forum, isn't it?

Nonverbal communication, do you know what it is?

Just something I have read today and called my attention

okay i am sorry but this is why this guy gets a lot of heat on this forum. Why would you post such a stupid post? He thinks he knows more than others? and you know this how? You dont think players talk to each other on the floor and offer advice and tips? Who on the raptors is talented besides a select few? And then after all this you say anyone can have a good game and make stats yet your defense for bargs for hte past few years has been his stats sheet. Your lack of knowledge and understanding of the NBA is clearly lacking. The problem is that its not improving at all either.

JJ is a 24 years old kid that thinks that he is the leader and gives advice to veteran players. He is not talented. He is not athletic by NBA standards. He hasn't got any special skill. He is supposed to be a glue guy, but he isn't good at that IMO. Fighting for every ball doesn't make him a NBA player. This is my opinion. A kind of opinion that not you or bluerap can have because of your lack of basketball knowledge. This is the truth, like it or not.

Again, I am a Calderon fan, not a Bargnani fan. It may seem that I defend Bargnani because the opinion about him in this forum is ridiculously biased
against him.

I think u should watch more of Johnson and maybe you'll come around. I wasn't high on him but then I realized that it was because I didn't know much about his game. The guy is a unreal athlete and his special skill is defense. He also has great shot blocking instincts and he is smart ( takes good open shots, cuts well, doesn't force offense when it isn't there).

No special skill?

The guy is a fantastic defender and that alone makes him an NBA player.

I'll say it right now:

If James Johnson plays the way he is coming off the bench (should really be starting over Butler) for the majority of the season, he needs to get consideration for All-Defensive First or Second team. Maybe not LeBron level, but I can see it.

He was damn good last season on a new team. You can already see he doesn't take a play off on defense. He stays with his man, good transition defense, contests shots, gets steals, deflects passes, blocks shots, and gets rebounds. He could guard 3 positions and with his size, he could probably guard some power forwards too.

Don't sleep on this guy. He's the stopper for this team, even if he hasn't started yet (although players in the past have gotten on the All-Defensive teams coming off the bench).

I hope it is the rest of you who are trolling when you say that JJ is a fantastic defender, a stopper or even an NBA-defensive team candidate. Or you are all-time sheep.
