Happy Birthday Joe Johnson!

Damn. Joe Johnson is 30 years old. And the Hawks STILL owe him over $107 million…not to mention a lockout that is going to restrict Atlanta’s flexibility even more. Let’s take it back to before there was talk about contracts, $124 mill, lockouts and Stern. As a guy who used to thoroughly dislike the Celtics, I applaud you Joe…Happy BDay!

What’s your favorite Joe Johnson moment?

    That was it. Video game buckets. That’s what Atl paid that big money for. Imagine if Joe and Bron had gone to NYC last summer…

  • ctkennedy

    hes overpaid not overrated….3rd best shootin guard in the league PERIOD…only Wade n Kobe better…top 20 player overall…EASILY

  • Sacto_J

    Great demonstration of will power against a good defensive team. Someone should sign that guy to a max contract…
    Buckets…!!!

  • Not Forgotten

    When I see this I ask: why can JJ do this every game? He makes it look so easy?

    Surely he should be included in any ‘top five’ conversation….

  • sh!tfaced

    lol @ Sacto_J

    agreed.

  • EN FUEGO

    JJ will be ‘Top Five’ in salaries soon.

    And potentially alongside the ‘Top Five’ among worst contracts/heists stories:

    – The Italian Job (with Rick Pitino as Celtics’ Coach)

    – Reservoir DOGS (starring Michael Vick, who else?)

    – Ocean’s Eleven (David Beckham and 10 other Galaxy players)

    – Ocean’s Twelve (Rashard Lewis, Eddy Curry, Ben Wallace, Larry Hughes & Michael Redd in 12-man rosters)

    – Ocean’s Thirteen (A-Rod wears #13)

    – Gone With The Win(d) (because the Hawks ain’t really winning and besides ATL, its the only other movie set there I could think of)
