I'd say he is. He's just another modern swingman. They come dime a dozen. He ain't no Nash, Lebron, or Jason Kidd.


LF1M, UBRS, need DPS.

Not really. He's a quality player.

Atlanta gave up far too much to get him but that doesn't make him over-rated to me.

JJ is awesome. Not overrated at all. Maybe a tiny bit underrated by those who didn't see him play this past year. Just an awesome, unselfish player. A notch below the very top caliber SG's at this point, but he still has that potential.

He would be a perfect fit for what team USA should be trying to do

He's overpaid, not necessarily overrated…

…except for this moron:

Quote:
He is a Mitch Richmond-Joe Dumars level player.

Mitch Richmond averaged 20PPG 11 years in a row. Joe Dumars was an All-NBA defender and NBA Finals MVP.

Joe Johnson ain't doin none of that. He hasn't even made a single All-Star game yet.

And there I was, almost having forgotten Redd and Hughes got those huge contracts and now this thread reminds me.

Anyways, JJ isn't horribly overrated, nobody thinks he's what the Hawks promised he would be when they traded for him, at least. Too bad he's a second-tier swing (below Kobe/Bron/McGrady/Wade, above Redd/Ray) with a superstar contract, brings on more hate than he deserves.

But is he a genuine franchise player? Somebody to bring back the Hawks from the dredges? I really don't think so, not that management is helping.

Redd and Hughes didn't cost their respective teams a future All-Star and 2 1st round picks.

...which has nothing to do with his contract, which is what my post was about. Also, I don't think Diaw will ever be an All-Star.

This season the Hawks coach said that JJ was playing like Kobe but the referees wasnt calling fouls on him.

He's not Kobe.
He's overpaid.
He isnt going to save tha Hawks
He isnt a point guard

But he is a very good SG. I like the combination with Dwight Howard that somebody wrote here, it would be nice...

And every palyer mentioned in this discussion is better than Larry Hughes and deserves more money than him.

No, I don't think he is overrated at all. Maybe by contract standards, but he is a very good player, and has the potential for more. Still one of my favorite players in the league.
