Don't get me wrong i like Johnson, but to say we shouldn't get a SF b/c of him is nuts at this point considering he's going into his fourth season and he's yet to prove himself good enough to start on a good team. And to compare Davis injury rehab stint to Johnson's stint for being out of shape is assinine.
Do you ever research your facts?
Johnson just completed his second season in the NBA, making the upcoming his third season, not his fourth. He played in 65 games as a rookie then after only playing in 13 last year (he was in Thibs doghouse for making a few bad decisions late in games) requested to go down to the D League so he could actually play and get minutes.
