AMIR JOHNSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

Raptors Draft Preview: Adreian Payne

In a most heralded 2014 draft class with no shortage of marquee names at the top of the draft board, the Toronto Raptors in a rarity for the franchise are sitting outside the draft lottery. With the #20 selection in the first round, in a draft class that has not received nearly enough credit for its depth, the Raptors pose to do some serious damage with the 20th pick. In ordinary...

Toronto Raptors: Who should go next season?

Part II of the two part series: what in the world are the Toronto Raptors going to do with their roster this offseason? In case you missed yesterday’s discussion on players I believe the Raptors front office would be wise to bring back, check it out here. For my money, it’s always easier to pass judgment on a player(s) who shouldn’t be a part of a given team because that...

Amir Johnson gets away with epic double dribble

Many basketball coaches preach to their players to not pick up their dribble unless they’re going to pass or shoot it.  The Raptors’ Amir Johnson picked up his dribble Wednesday night, but chose option (c) which was dribble again to get a better look at the hoop. Per NBA rules in which the double dribble and traveling are both optional, it wasn’t called.  And actually, it...

Amir Johnson ejected for ‘childish’ fight with referee David Jones, threw mouthpiece at him (Video)

Raptors Amir Johnson wins the award for the NBA’s most bizarre ejection of the year

The Raptors are in the midst of a season for the ages, but for all the wrong reasons.  To say the team is struggling would be an understatement—the Raps have lost five in a row and 10 of their last 11 and have pretty well thrown in the towel on the 2012-13 season and it we’re only halfway through December.  Toronto lost to Portland 94-72 on Monday night in yet another putrid...

Amir Johnson's shoes have his face on them

Toronto Raptors’ Amir Johnson doesn’t just wear any shoes when balling, he wears shoes that feature his face like these customized Nike Huarache 2K4s via The Basketball Jones.

Raptors big man Amir Johnson really stood out at a ‘Zombie Walk’ in Toronto (photo)

Toronto Raptors center/forward Amir Johnson is apparently something of a zombie buff, as evidenced by the fact that his favorite television show is The Walking Dead. In fact, his affinity for zombies goes so far that he participated in a “Zombie Walk” through the streets of Toronto on Saturday. Unfortunately, being 6-foot-9 causes an aspiring zombie [...]
