Amir is a top 7 Raptor of all time. His style and movements would look out of place on any athletic venue except that of a basketball court. A true pro.

He's surpassed Oakley for me! I absolutely love him to death. I really liked how he brushed off Jack's shit question last night, and ejecting his ego, applauded his teammates for competing to the very end amidst some trying circumstances. Amir, Lowry, and DD are ballers.

He is surely my favorite Raptors of all-time. He is a team first player and he enjoys representing Toronto. All around classy guy, I just hope we can somehow get a 1st rounder without having to move him.

He was really my biggest disappointment thus far. But it has become clear that wasn't about him. Now he looks like the leader they want and need again.

Losing Rudy can be seen as the obvious tank move. But keeping him would have been the easier route to ensuring this team implodes and loses. I see the Rudy trade as a response to guys like Amir and DeMar being fed up and needing something done at the earliest possible opportunity, and Masai showed his faith in them. That doesn't mean those guys are off the trading block or that any options have been closed off, but this team will play the right way again, get some results that are reasonable for what they are rather than wasting opportunities while pretending they are something else, and halt the toxicity that could have lingered for years to come, and which this team has already suffered through far too many times in the past. Amir and Masai make me feel good about being a fan of this team. And it feels like that could last for a long time.

I hope Casey is bright enough to name Amir as the co-captain with Demar in Rudy's place.

Amir Johnson is my favourite Raptor of all time as well. Hard not to like the dude.

Just an all around great guy. The one good thing BC did.

I've actually met him a bunch of times.

He always rolls to the gas station at Bathurst and Lakeshore across from my office.

Sweetheart of a guy. Straight legend.

Amir's a boss in every way shape and form. Good dude all around, and gives his all every night and every day.
