Sole survivors - Jarrett Jack and Joe Johnson

Joe Johnson says he was happy when he got the news the Nets had traded for Jarrett Jack back in July. "I think Jarrett’s probably going to be one of the biggest X-factors for this team," Joe Johnson said on media day. "I think he’s very underrated, a guy that can do multiple things, as far as catch and shoot, shooting off the dribble, create, defending, another ball handler who can break down the defense. So I think it’s only a plus for us, man. I was excited when we got him." There may have been another reason. Now, Johnson has someone to talk to about his obsession,...

Why should you watch the Nets this season? Because of Joe Johnson!

Why should you watch the Nets this season? Because of Joe Johnson!

Joe Johnson is thought of as boring and uncharismatic, with a fat paycheck being paid by the Brooklyn Nets. However, since coming to Brooklyn, Johnson has been as steady as they come, giving Nets fans buzzer beater after buzzer beater and filthy crossover after filthy crossover. Zach Harper, in a special for ESPN.com, took notice when he told readers why they should watch the Nets in 2014-2015. Because he had a fantastic agent a few years ago and signed a monster contract with the Atlanta Hawks, we've focused on Joe Johnson's bank account far too much. In reality, the six-year, $119...

Just Kidding! Johnson takes back dig at former Nets coach

The Nets have had fun dishing on their former coach, teasing about the lack of practice time last season under Jason Kidd. Joe Johnson has been the most candid, answering a question about Kidd’s practice habits on media day a little over a week ago by saying the team rarely rehearsed last season.

Joe Johnson on aging: You can't 'eat honey buns and Doritos' anymore

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Over the past decade, only one player has logged more minutes than Joe Johnson: LeBron James. Johnson has logged 34,500 minutes (in 898 games) over the past 10 seasons, according to NBA.com, while James has logged 39,993 minutes in 1,000 games. “I didn’t know that.

Notebook: Hollins' practices no cakewalk

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Brooklyn Nets didn’t practice much under Jason Kidd last season. Nets swingman Joe Johnson confirmed as much on media day Monday. “We practiced, but, you know, not really,” Johnson said with a laugh.

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

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.
