    I'm really going to miss putting in Johnson to help put the balls in the hole :(

    I like that Johnson went hard to the hole repeatedly. I heard, he does it so much, he'll throw up. I also heard he knows how to work the ball in a way that pleasures McHale greatly. His reach-around grab move he does to steal the ball always catches his man off-guard.

    Maybe we should erect Johnson a statue in his honor or maybe we can do something smaller since Johnson really isn't that big. Can someone make T-Shirts that say "I love Johnson" on them?

    He posted this two hours before the announcement. I hope he evacuated to Katy safely

    Johnson might turn out to be a decent rotation player, but probably nothing more than that. He always seemed a little lost out there, but that might have been from being in the D-League for so long. For his sake, hopefully he can at least last in the league a few years.

    I liked his defense and his game winner against the Wolves. Good luck in Denver.

    He favorited one of my replies to him last summer. And for that, I thank him.

    For me, Johnshon's biggest contribution to the team was staying in the D-league and helping Capela develop his game. That's not a knock on Johnson by any means.

    Actually, I thought pretty highly of Johnson, and within a few seasons, he could develop into a heady, tough floor general for some team's bench unit. I think the Rockets thought so too, but naturally getting someone of Lawson's caliber took precedence.

    I really liked the kid. Great attitude but it was obvious he needed minutes to improve which just weren't available here.

    I'm glad he'll have an opportunity to get some minutes in Denver, I'd imagine. Hope he does well.
