This is why everyone with half a brain considers James Johnson to be the same as LeBron James but a little worse at everything (except not being a wimpy flopper). This game right here. Not an outrageous statistical performance by any means, but he made his presence felt in all areas of the game, and his iffy turnovers were made up for by him not missing a shot.
Normally 20 points is the cutoff for Johnson on my channel, but it’s the playoffs, and as I said, he didn’t miss a shot, so deal with it. I mean, it’s not like anyone ever misses a shot in my vids, because of the immutable nature of highlights, but I couldn’t have shown him missing even if I wanted to. Except for that free-throw.
This was going to be the paragraph where I mentioned that maybe he still isn’t living up to his gigantic contract, but then I looked it up and it’s not as bad as I remember. Totally reasonable, actually. So there goes that. I was going to really go in on the Heat organization and Pat Riley and maybe even diss their fans a little bit, but now I can’t.
Maybe it’s better if I save the “Fan Up, Miami!” jokes for later, anyway.
