Default Joe Johnson of the Atlanta Hawks

I am a die hard Hawks fan so I may be favoring my favorite player a little, but I want to hear an opinion from a non-hawks fan about Joe Johnson. I believe he might be the most underrated player in the NBA right now. He carries the Hawks team and single handingly defeated the Celtics in game 4 of the 1st round. He's a great shooter,defender, passer, and can dribble just as good or better then more then half the PG's in the NBA.

I'm just curious what outsiders think about Joe Johnson.. fill me in.

good player but what's with the choice of pics? the 2nd one makes him look like he's gay and the first one pretty much confirms it.

I like Joe Johnson. I'm a big fan of versatile players and he can play anywhere from the 1-3. I loved him on the Suns. I didn't think he would be this good in a first option role but he proved me wrong.

I've loved the guy since watching him in the Shaw' Summer league here in Boston back in 01. His strength is his offensive versatility, you can't name many 6'7, 6-8 with his level of ball-handling ability. He's got an excellent jumper that extends well out beyond the three, and can play in the post. He only needs to develop some small things(Ability to recognize double teams, and defensive consistency) to take his game to the next level.

Joe Cool is a player I'm a fan of actually. He's a great shooter, and clutch under pressure. He has been in big games before in the playoffs (played for Phoenix in 2003 and 2005 and the Hawks vs. the Celts in 2008), and he has a very smooth game. Fits his nickname well... Joe Cool. He is also an underrated passer. Johnson should also make the Dream Team this summer.

He was chosen to be a all-star before or just when Bibby came to Atlanta. So he must be pretty good if bad-year = all star spot.

JJ is really blossoming into a serious baller. Coincidently, because of your pic, i used to compare him alot to Ray Allen. I watched him a couple times on NBA league pass. I want to see more rebounds, assists and stls from my type of elite player. Allen lacked a serious all around game. His rebound and assist numbers are sub 5 on both fronts.

JJ on the otherhand came on strong with both %'s and the assists at the end of the season.

Im looking at him hard...to make my fantasy team next season.

Bibby also worked out very well for you guys. Nice guard combo, except on those cold shooting nights. Damn cold.

AI3 has nothing to do with Allen Iverson. My initials are AI and my favorite number just happens to be 3.

As a Suns fan, I remember him well.

Great finisher (although he did benefit from Steve Nash's phenomenal MVP season), whether dunking or shooting.
