Joe Johnson is certainly somewhat of a polarizing player in the NBA. He’s been undeniably productive and is one of the better scorers around over the years, but is hilariously overpaid. Some people talk about his play, and some just talk about his contract. Both are probably fair. But you can’t blame the guy for taking money that the he was offered, right? The Brooklyn Nets decided to take on his massive deal this offseason in an effort to try to convince point guard Deron Williams to stay in town long-term. The plan worked, as Williams re-signed. Regardless, we can all have a nice laugh at the wristband that Joe Johnson is wearing tonight. It just straight up says his name on it, and seemingly nothing else. Photo credit to @CJZero. This really isn’t all that big of a deal, but it’s humorous. At what point was Joe Johnson just like, “you know, I want to wear a wristband with my name on it.” It’s goofy for sure, but harmless. Johnson has had his fair share of struggles this season, from shooting woes to injuries. He is only shooting slightly over 42% on the season, averaging 16.4 points, 3.6 assists, and 3.1 rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets will look to him to carry a heavier load come playoff time; we’ll see how he responds. -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post Joe Johnson Wearing A Joe Johnson Wristband appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
