Behold: one of the sickest collections of layups you will ever see. So sick are they that I am forced to refrain my self-created term of LAMEups to refer to them. You know that they’re going to be good if even DownToBuck, hater of layups, thinks that they’re good enough to show in a highlight video.
I don’t know how it happened that James Johnson ended up either guarding or being guarded by Mo Bamba, but from the looks of things, it seems he was the decisive victor in that matchup. Bamba theoretically has the length to be a great defender, but the reality is different, and Johnson was cooking him at the basket. Not to mention his block on Bamba’s midrange jimbo. Come ON, dude. You’re 7 feet tall with a 20-foot wingspan, put that jumper up there where midgets like Johnson can’t challenge it!
Meanwhile, Heat fans are looking at the current horrible losing streak and wondering if giving up James Johnson to get Andretirementhome IguOLDala was a good idea after all. Certainly, that’s something that I’m wondering, and I’m not the one watching my team implode. Something went wrong with Johnson in Miami, but he had some great years there, and he’s not nearly as old and out of shape as Iguodala. Look at him. He doesn’t even look noticeably fat anymore.
