So Chris Johnson is now a starter for the Sixers (who look to be even worse than last year)

After what I saw from Chris Johnson a season ago in Boston, I was really hoping the Celtics would figure out a way to keep him.  But they didn't, and the 76ers snatched Johnson up a few days later.  I wrote "it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest to see him earn serious minutes on this Philly squad."Well guess what, Johnson is a starter.  He played 32 minutes in the Sixers'...
