Amir Johnson put on quite a show in Boston setting career highs with 20 points and 12 rebounds along with 4 blocked shots. Not only does Amir know how to play but he plays every minute like it is last. This kid has so much heart and potential, it’s nice to see him get some time.
What impressed me most is his humble, and thankful attitude in his postgame interview. It’s refreshing to see someone so excited to finally get to showcase what he can do. Amir knows he has to earn his minutes and he will get a chance to do just that next season.
Buy your Amir Johnson jerseys now, this kid is making a name for himself!
I’m adding another hero to my list…
Yeah, Amir Johnson is probably my 2nd favorite Piston. (Under McDyess of course) I love how hard he plays, i love his athletic ability, i love everything about this guy. He is the future, he is going to be a superstar, and he IS going to keep this Piston Franchise at a high level for years to come.
This jid is good, I can;t wait to see what he brings to the team next season. He was great tinight. I thin that first game where he went was 1-8 eight thent he chots started falling was just him warming up and how wow he can play next season is going to be great Joe knows what he is doing with these young players making this team stay a playoff team ones the others retire
Does anybody think webber is out of here after the playoffs. If he does leave. I can’t say that i’ll miss him. Guy has been a bad luck charm everywhere he’s been. Never can seal the deal. and you know DP doesnt play for 2nd place.
who thinks the pistons should give amir some small mins in the playoffs here and there i think hes solid enough to handle some real minutes, if you max you can play amir
he better not be going back to the d league
I doubt he’s on the playoff roster. While it’d be awesome to see him in there, and no doubt he’d give some quality time, I’d rather see him around next year. He’s shown what he can do against weak lineups right now, but he’s not playoff ready in my mind.
wel i dont mean big minutes but throwing him in there once an awhile could be good for the teeam, hes solid enough where he wont hold the team back
There is no playoff roster. The playoff rosters are now handled like the regular season. You activate 12 players, but the next day, you can activate a different 12 players on your roster.
There’s a good chance Amir returns to the D-League to play in the playoffs down there. It’s only 2 games more as playoffs are a one and done deal down there. He would only miss the first couple of games against Orlando, which he would probably be inactive for anyway.
I think Amir is a combo of one kid standing on another’s shoulders. Has anyone noticed that when he goes for a block or rebound it is like the bottom half of his body doesn’t move, while the top half can totally just envelope someone going up for a shot. It is so weird.
But he had a great game against the Celtics
aww i think thats cute that hes watching how sheed plays and taking notes and trying to get like him
As a Pacers fan it’s difficult to swallow your stacked frontcourt getting even better, but that looks like it’s the case here.
