As he has demonstrated many times in the past and on multiple occasions this season alone, Joe Johnson’s handle is not something to be taken lightly. At any given moment he can and will exploit even the slightest lapse in discipline or loss of balance, leaving defenders stumbling or even sprawled out on the floor. Yesterday, Johnson’s behind-the-back crossover actually shook Chris Bosh so badly that he turned into something of a projectile, taking out a help defender in Udonis Haslem as he careened out of control. Joe Cool used the five or so feet of space created to simply pick up his dribble and drain the uncontested 20-footer.
From a fundamental standpoint, Bosh made a catastrophic error when he stopped sliding his feet laterally and turned to run alongside Johnson. As you can see, this makes it virtually impossible to react to the sudden movements of a talented dribbler. Unable to control his momentum, Bosh tripped when Johnson stopped on a dime. He then bowled into his own teammate, serving as a fantastic screen.
Aren’t mismatches fun?
BEST OF MAXIM
Miami Heat center Chris Bosh drew a foul call on Brooklyn Nets forward Reggie Evans with a flop on a three-point shot in the third quarter of Wednesday night's game at the Barclays Center.
Bosh threw his head back and shot the ball about 30 feet up in the air as he pretended he was hit by Evans, who may have grazed Bosh after the shot was taken. However, the refs called the...
The Miami Heat didn't have much trouble with the Brooklyn Nets last night beating them 105-85. The real story of the night was Chris Bosh if you can believe it. Bosh got his ankle broken by Joe Johnson in the first quarter of the game and would have fallen to the ground if it wasn't for a teammate that helped him stay up. Later in the game Bosh wanted some payback and...

If you thought the Miami Heat would have trouble while facing the Brooklyn Nets sorry to break the bad news, but you thought wrong. Last night the Heat cruised to a victory winning 105-85; however the highlight of the night actually didn’t include LeBron James. Who would have imagined that?
Chris Bosh was the star of the night by default. During the first quarter Joe Johnson...
Chris Bosh is most likely feeling the effects from this Joe Johnson crossover even today. On Wednesday night during the Heat and Nets game in Brooklyn Joe Johnson took Chris Bosh off the dribble to a very deep and dark place. Check out the cross-up which sent Bosh flying into teammate Udonis Haslem and looking more lost than a child wondering into the middle of the movie ‘Inception...
I actually have something funnier than Joe Johnson absolutely shaking Chris Bosh, but let’s see that first.
Now for the funny stuff.

The league has opened their eyes to the flops around the league starting this season. Reggie Evans (seen in video) is one of the kings of flopping. So it comes to no surprise that players will take the reputation of Evans and use it against him. I just never thought that person, being Chris Bosh, would flop while taking a jump shot. Arguable the worst call of the night (sorry...
Video: Of course Chris Bosh gets made fun of
We here at That NBA Lottery Pick love killer crossovers and during last night's Brooklyn Nets/Miami Heat game, Chris Bosh was a victim of a nasty one.In the first quarter of play, Brooklyn's Joe Johnson was one-on-one with Chris and put together an epic crossover that sent Mr. Bosh down for the count:
LeBron James took responsibility to look for Chris Bosh more often on offense, as will the rest of the team.
Chris Bosh brings along a few tiny friends to meet Ray Allen who cause chaos in the training room in this new Foot Locker Kids commercial also featuring Bosh’s son, Jack:
Tweet When you mention Joe Johnson of the Brooklyn Nets many people automatically think of his enormous contract, which is justifiable. Perhaps not too far behind that should be his ability to separate himself from defenders with an underrated handle. Earlier this season Johnson did this to Paul Pierce. You should definitely click that [...]
Nets guard Joe Johnson broke out his handles Wednesday night when his team faced off against the Miami Heat. Check out this video of Joe going one-on-one against Chris Bosh and crossing him over.
