To be fair he never got a fair shake on those other teams. When James actually got run he would always stuff the stat sheet. So him having a career year is because he's getting consistent run finally ya know. His coach actually trusts him, will he have that trust on another team?? No way but in no way do I think this is a contact year special.  Agree to disagree there. 

 

Why do you say that?  From my understanding he had a lot of opportunity for court time especially during his first tenure in Toronto and then in Memphis.  Both of those teams gave him plenty of run with seeing at least 20+ minutes with a lot of starts too.  He's had injury niggles so that might have cost him some continuity.  Potentially his versatility might have cost him too.  If the coaches liked him off the bench playing different spots it can be hard to get a good roll going.  Having said this while he may have been used in different positions and roles he nevertheless still got used, whether as a PF or SF.

why do you say this? This season has been by far and away most consistent run and trust he's seen in his career.

anybody watched the game?

what's with the low minutes?

Everybody's healthy now, Waiters was the WW pickup for the rest of the season. I see JJ having some good stat games and some duds, just hard to trust someone off the bench with a healthy team now unless a big goes down.

He's a second degree black belt. He's 20-0 as a kickboxer and he's undefeated in MMA fights. No one wants to f--- with him.

I didn't watch the game but 15, 7, and 8 with a triple 2. I could care less about the turnovers as I don't stand a chance at winning that cat unless I face Westbrook or Harden.

Still looks like a solid play in 8-cat, as the potential 6th Man OTY.  I'm not reading too much into a couple of bad games around the break.  Seems irrational to panic over his ROS outlook.  This guy was just being touted as many peoples best WW pickup this season, with good reason.  

 

Even with a healthy roster, Spolestra shouldn't have any issues giving JJ 28+ minutes.  Any injury on this team opens up more opportunity - ie; even as a small ball 5, if he has to back up HW when Reed's out.

crossing my fingers it's just precautionary, if he's out for an extended time I'm done

 

Spo on J. Johnson's injury: "We just want to make sure that elbow doesn't get infected."

I appreciate the 4 blocks and 2 steals but this dude needs to stop chucking it up hoping it goes in, it's playoffs time for us

 

3/14 shooting and 3/6 freethrows good grief

The blocks are actually saving me. I'd be losing that cat if he wasn't matching gobert

What do you think of James Johnsons this year.

It is projected that he will start at PF would you consider him for a late 6th round choice- early 7th for 12 times 8 cat?
