Default Official Amir Johnson Appreciation Thread

Because honestly this is way overdue.

I have yet to see Amir not leave it all on the floor once this year - great on defense and a monster on the glass. This guy bails CB and Andrea out more than I care to count. Love him.

Gotta love his grittiness. His effort for loose balls is outstanding - the rest just stand around.

if there's anyone in this team that i don't want to be traded, it's this guy. he may not put up 10ppg but he makes it up with rebounds and defense (to some degree).

Over the last 2-3 games, I'd add Weems and Banks to the list of players who are pulling their loads and finding ways to contribute.

Hey Pistons and Bucks......Eat your heart out.

Man, can you guys imagine how good this guy would have been in Milwakee along side Jennings?

He was all over it today. I was really impressed he could go small and defend Peja at the 3. He wasen't just helping on D or playing great team D, He was instigating looking to force turn overs, great to see that kind of heart.

Honestly he'd probably have trouble finding minutes - we're pretty thin at the 4/5 after Bosh and Bargs especially with Reggie out. This really is the perfect situation for him, I'm sure he's thanking his lucky stars he's here.

He really looks like he wants to be here! I wish more people played with the heart and hustle and shows.

They can use them both. Maybe fewer minutes for Bargnani, and even Bosh.

if Reggie plays as hard as i remember... and team him with Amir and they'll be like the Road Warriors or Demolition from WWF back in the day!
it will be epic seeing those 2 damage the opposition.
