    He's a white guy with hair, let's compare him to another white player.

    Not only that but has the same tenacity and furiousness as Sura. He kinda looks like him, don't you think? Not trying to offend anyone this is for fun and all honestly, he was ballin last night.

    Really loved how he attacked. Can tell he wasn't nervous at all.

    The White Goran Dragic.

    Can't believe Morey passed up on this guy. Outrageous!

    This dude has a long way to go in this field. I'll be rooting for him though.

    And I caught the tail end of the 2nd half, didn't even know who or where he came from. All of a sudden, the dude is just tenacious and all over the floor. I hope he gets minutes man, the dude is fun to watch. Very inspiring as well.

    The look on Zoran's face after this guy hits a three. That guy is never getting on the court.

    Joe Harris had couple games like this earlier in the season when the Cavs was sucking bad.

    And now he basically played in the D-league.

    i like his game. ton of hustle plays. 50% of his scores were off good cuts and off-ball movement

    You would keep wishing even if Lin was still here.

    Most of Johnson's points came of off the ball movement, meaning he does not need to have the ball or needs to keep dribbling to be effective......something Lin never learned how to do. Lin crazies know this which is also why they always yell for Lin to have the ball all the time (their code words being "set him free") despite it being common knowledge that Lin has weak handles.

    Notice how Johnson was decisive, aggressive and made quick move off of one or two dribbles while Wade or Dragic set plays for him. If he can play off the ball as well as make plays with the ball, then he can fit anywhere.

    Haha Lin might not have lived up to the lofty expectations of his contract, but let's not fool ourselves. He had great, borderline dominant games.

    Can Johnson make plays with the ball? Can he dribble when people actually D up on him? Can a 6'3" sg survive by playing off ball in the NBA (...maybe if he's actually a white Wade)? He's had a couple of nice scoring games in the past, but we'll see how he develops when he gets more consistent PT.

    I like this Johnson guys game. Aggressive and decisive, like you said. But let's not insult Lin by saying that the rook is at the level of a established NBA player with multiple 20+ scoring games against good competition.

    But I will be rooting for Johnsanity.

    LOL @ established player.

    Trust me on this. No rook takes it as a compliment to be compared to Jeremy Lin.

    I have seen enough to know that this rook can play off of the ball which means he can co-exist with a star perimeter player, something that Lin has shown he cannot do (Neither Carmelo, nor Harden, nor Kobe).
