    I was disappointed there weren't many more videos of Eddie Johnson on the internet. I guess because of how long ago he played in his prime, the footage would be hard get.

    For over a decade, he averaged 18.5 points per game. He's currently ranked forty-seventh in career total points, with 19,202. Even at the age of 37, he averaged 11.5 ppg for the Rockets in '96-97.

    He once scored 43 points in two quarters and an overtime:

    He averaged over twenty-one points a game in his one season overseas...

    That was a lifetimes ago. The last time the rockets had a shot at truly winning it all.
