James Johnson down 10-15lbs
 
Paul Jones around the 5:05 mark states that James Johnson has lost 10-15lbs.

I'm liking the sounds of that

Don Vito 06-21-2011 07:31 PM

James Johnson is motivated, that is another reason to not draft Leonard.

Alex 06-21-2011 07:36 PM

Good to hear!

lankganglia 06-21-2011 07:36 PM

misread the title as "James Johnson down to 150lbs"

I'm also a fan of JJ.

I think he really showed that he WANTS to play once he came to TO. He's willing to play hard on both ends, play for the team, and seems to have a newfound commitment to improving both physically and mentally.

He's got what it takes to be a great utility player considering his size, athleticism, and very solid hands.

I think this guy will take a big step forward this year, especially if he proves himself to coach Casey early...

I can see JJ being a good role player. He does the little things, and would be instant energy being the first player off the bench. Drafting Leonard would make sense, especially since Knight will be off the board at 5.

Boris Diaw 2.5?

I'd think Lamar Odom 0.5.

But something like that.

James Johnson looked pretty soft... it was the only thing I didn't like.

If he has a nutritionist and a trainer now... look out.

ps. why don't they ALL have that, you'd think they learn???

Between JJ and JuJu we should be covered in defensive SF part
Leonard is nice but not better than what we have in any way

Dark Knight 06-21-2011 08:39 PM

It's either we grab Leonard now, or we tank again and go for Gilchrist. :cookie:

JuJu is a goner.

i like James Johnson. He came from maybe the 13th man on the bulls to a starter on the raptors(lol) BUT he excelled and was an immediate impact. Hearing he is losing 10-15 pounds is great news! give him a season and he'll be our permanent SF

we have no choice but to tank. we won't do it on purpose, but we'll be awful regardless.

This year's draft class has been a huge disappointment after all the drop outs. All up to Colangelo with free agency and trades.

Somehow everyone wants Julian Wright gone
All because of one episode of frustration caused by Triano? Tell me you can't relate to that, we were frustrated by Triano for two seasons.

In last games he was asked to be a PG and did ok! He actually shot better from the field than JJ. Love his versatility
We dont need draft or FA defensive specialists, we have our own.

I was begging for him to get PT last season, i have no problem with him but i just don't think he'll be back.

Really depends on his price. His qualifying offer is 4M.... way too much. So he's not going to be tendered, and if he came back on a minimum, fine. Otherwise, same as Sunny.
