    I've always liked Ernie Johnson and it's great to find out he is such a great human being. We need more like him.

    Thanks OP.

    Ernie is a saint. He called me "a good dude" on TV in front of my daughters on my birthday, which is about as good as it gets.

    EJ is the man. You can tell he's a genuinely good person and this article confirms it.

    I met the gent in mid-'90s. Same then as he is today.

    EJ made Charles IMO.

    EJ has been a permanent fixture in my NBA experience. I don't even remember when I first started watching him with Chuck and Kenny; he's just kinda always been there.

    And obviously one hell of a stand-up guy.

    ^ Ditto the above.
    I feel the exact same way about EJ.

    He always seems like a good dude and he was already pretty high in my book but after reading the article and learning all that about him and his wife, he just went up even higher.

    EB and his wife are great people. Essentially, they saved that orphan boy from certain death.

    Much respect to the Johnsons.
