Who the Flying F**k does Joe Johnson think he is. You don't think Lebron needs help what about that guy in L.A., After about 3 or four horrid years Pierce has finally got help. So who the hell does Joe Johnson who made the allstar team as an replacment thinks he's doing.

"It turns out that the king of assist bias is the table at Texas A&M. At home, the Aggies recorded assists on 78.5% of their made field goals. It's a percentage that is ridiculous to the point of being unbelievable. Only one team in the country cleared an assist rate of 70% on the season and that was Northwestern at 71.6%. A&M did play some cream puffs at home, so perhaps a figure close to 80% could be attained over 19 games, which was the length of their home schedule.

Any hope of suspending disbelief is lost by knowing that away from Reed Arena, A&M was credited with assists on just 45.2% of their made baskets. That figure is significantly below the national average assist rate of 55.1%. It's a rate that, sustained for the entire season, would have ranked Texas A&M 323rd--14th-worst--in the country in sharing the basketball. So to summarize: At home, Texas A&M was one of the best assisting teams in college basketball history. Away from home, they were the worst major conference team in sharing the ball.

Away from home, A&M was playing in front of all sorts of different scorekeepers, so it's unlikely that there was a conspiracy among all or even most of them to not record Aggies' assists. No, the only explanation is that assist inflation was at record levels in College Station in 2007. It was a phenomenon that didn't go unnoticed in the rest of the conference. Texas took the unusual step of voiding assists that were credited to its own team in a game at Texas A&M. (Note: under NCAA rules this a step that doesn't affect the official statistics, only Texas' internal records.)"

Because they are going nowhere with J'Oneal and may want to do some rebuilding with some youth.

Joe Johnson is one of the league's most overrated players. He should just keep his mouth shut.

The Wizardly Cool Chickens™ agree.

What could've been JJ.....what could've been.

It's sad that it took you 2 losing years to realize what a lot of fans knew already.

You had plenty of help here. We hung with you even when you were inconsistent and at times, disappointing. You played in a great system that was making the game easy for you. You were developing into a very good player on a very good team. You had a great PG, and a great post player. At that time, you did not deserve maximum dollars. The Suns made an offer based on what you had done, and you forced your way out because you wanted to be the #1 guy, and you wanted your money.

I don't blame you for any of that JJ. You got what you wanted, and as bitter as I still am that you left, this is the last thing I want to hear. This is the situation you wanted. You knew the track record of this team when they were wooing you.
