Thumbs up Slam Online: Johnson Continues To Battle

Quote:
Grabbing rebounds, playing gritty defense and being a hustle player is one thing, but to stick him with that kind of label doesn’t do his game justice. Sure, Johnson loves to dive on the floor for loose balls, mix it up in the paint and lead the team in rebounds, but his game is about more than just doing the dirty work. He’s taken the countless lessons he’s learned from playing alongside veterans like Rasheed Wallace, Theo Ratliff, Dale Davis or Antonio McDyess and he has implemented those things into his own game.

Small stuff like taking away passing lanes, better utilizing spacing within the offense for himself or his teammates and making timely cuts within Toronto’s offensive sets is allowing him to make a big impact on the court for Toronto.

Fans in Toronto may not have noticed all the small things he does on the court but the coaching staff has definitely taken notice.

“I think he does a bunch of the little things for us,” Triano explained to me last weekend. “He runs the floor hard all the time and he sets screens and rolls to the basket hard. People have to respect that or if they don’t he lays it in. When you make hard cuts different guys have to help guard you and the frees up one of your teammates. It’s a stat that doesn’t really get noticed or rewarded but a good hard cut can open up a teammate just as easily as a good pass or a good screen.”

Amir should start and Andrea should come off the bench as the 6th man.

The reason I said that is that Bosh and Andrea don't bond well on the floor. Otherwise I like Andrea. But he'll be better coming off the bench.

Listen Cam, I agree with you, our centers consistantly beat their guy statistically. All I wish is that Bargnani would start helping his teamates with thier men.

cause clearly they aren't helping him... lol...

This team need perimeter defence... don't let NBA players bomb wide open 3's cause they will hit them...

time to trade Calderon as he is the only moveable piece.....
