Johnson credits 'hot yoga' for better shape

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Brooklyn Nets swingman Joe Johnson says he’s as light as he’s been since his early days in Boston and Phoenix. But how? It's simple: Yoga. Specifically “hot yoga.” “I’m a yoga head,” Johnson said Saturday, following the team’s first day of training camp. “I’m a hot yoga head.” Johnson, listed at 6-foot-7 and 240 pounds, was 225 pounds in his final season with the Suns (2004-05), according to basketballreference.

Hollins: Fifth starter will be a guard

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Brooklyn Nets coach Lionel Hollins said Joe Johnson is going to be playing small forward, which means the team has an opening at its starting shooting guard position. “It’s gonna be a guard,” Hollins replied when asked who is going to start alongside Deron Williams, Johnson, Kevin Garnett and Brook Lopez. “Joe Johnson’s gonna be a three. But as I say that I don’t want to be held to it because 2/3 is the same position basically like 4/5 is the same position, technically, but I’m looking for one of those guys to play guard.

Joe Johnson rated 82 overall in NBA2K15

The Nets most consistent player since the team arrived in Brooklyn has been Joe Johnson. Yet he doesn't seem to get the credit he is due. The wing is a seven-time All Star and is fresh off a fantastic playoff run where he averaged 21 points and shot 53% from the field, 41% from beyond the arc. Anyway, Johnson is rated 82 in NBA2K15, 51st best overall in the game. He is barely higher than his teammate last year Paul Pierce, who is rated 81 by the game makers.

SI lists Andrei Kirilenko and Joe Johnson listed as top 100 players

With Media Day under two weeks away, the season about a month and a half away, NBA websites are releasing their lists of top players in the league heading into the new year. Sports Illustrated's Ben Golliver and Rob Mahoney published their list of players ranked 51-100 Monday afternoon, and two Nets were listed: Andrei Kirilenko and Joe Johnson. Kirilenko was placed 85 on the list, ahead of the likes of Boris Diaw (No. 100) and Jamal Crawford (No. 86), which is a pretty fair spot for the Russian who is coming off an injury-riddled year. Mahoney believes that Kirilenko is over the hump, but...

"Brooklyn's Backcourt:"Deron Williams and Joe Johnson are still the foundation of the Nets

Two summers ago, Deron Williams re-signed with the Nets for a max contract, giving the team a superstar for the organization's move to Brooklyn. The team also acquired Joe Johnson from Atlanta, a soft spoken scoring wing who has a notoriously lucrative contract. The two were touted as "Brooklyn's Backcourt," leaders of a team that had title aspirations. The team even trademarked the term, "Brooklyn's Backcourt," for clothing, radio and television programming, games, etc. To mark their arrival, there was a pep rally outside Brooklyn Borough Hall where they, Billy King, Avery Johnson spoke...
