    To all of you talking **** about iso Joe, give this man some space. He hasn’t played in weeks!!!! Y’all have no idea but we just added another legit passer. Think of an old draymond green who can actually shoot too.

    We need to trade him for an elite 2 way player like Aaron Afflalo.

    I like the post up passing he was doing. Adds another dimension to this team. Kind of like Duncan

    Wow this is a bad thread I would say maybe the worst ever but that would be a lie and it’s pretty embarrassing that we’ve had worse lol.

    Joe passing out of the post is a new wrinkle who cares what else he can and can’t do.

    MDA wanted him cp3 wanted him and James wanted him. He’s a good vet and is battle tested.

    Nothing wrong with him sitting on the end of the bench for emergency situations. Trust him more that Troy freaking Williams.

    I think the hate has to reach a tipping point. Clutchfans.net dipping their toes in the disdain for Iso Joe.

    If you noticed Joe can iso in the post and still can command a double team in the low to mid range post. When the playoffs slow the rockets tempo down he is a guy that can get you high percentage buckets while being a passing threat out of the post. MDA has to take great care to use Joe correctly. Joe could play 10 -20 minutes at power forward on most nights on this team. This squad has unbelieveable potential

    ISO joe is going to be fine but come on man - he is literally nothing like Draymond in any way besides height, skin color, and they both have decent b-ball IQ(know where/when to pass it)...that’s about it.

    Seen him compared to Tim Duncan, Draymond Green, and implied as better than Carmelo Anthony in less than one week. When all he is is a washed up iso player who is a negative impact guy on both ends.

    He is legitimately significantly worse than Ryan Anderson, and got 10 more minutes tonight, which absolutely mystifies me.

    JJ did all right. Lotta PT was a surprise. 4/4 FT when they were fouling at the end.

    Uh, no. When Anderson isn't hitting shots, he literally contributes nothing to the team. When JJ isn't hitting shots, he still commands double-teams and can take his game into the post to get an easier shot or to pass out.

    He needs reps with the team, to build chemistry - this is especially more important now, as everyone jets off to vacation.

    I really don't understand how people are so blind to this - Johnson literally just got here, and has has no practices...yet people are expecting him to be our 3rd best player or something.
