I think a good comp for Johnson would be Shawn Marion. He doesn't have 3-pt. range like he used to but he can shoot from mid-range, and he's a good rebounder and defender. DAL starts him at SF and uses him as the backup PF when they go small, and they've had him guarding anyone from Aldridge to Wallace to Kobe to Roy during these playoffs. I think if Johnson develops a 10-footer, he has the D and the strength and agility to become well-rounded like Marion.
