Al Horford versus Joe Johnson: A Max Contract Comparison

This upcoming off-season for the Atlanta Hawks will revolve around the status of Al Horford. I have previously detailed what his maximum contract would look like and how Atlanta can navigate the off-season both with and without Al. For those veteran Atlanta Hawks fans, the decision of offering Al a 5-year maximum salaried contract may appear to be similar to the decision faced in the 2010 off-season with Joe Johnson. It's true that Al and Joe have parallels. Al enters this off-season as a 9 year veteran, with Bird Rights, the ability to sign a contract through age 34, and uncertainty...

Could the former Phoenix Suns in 2016 playoffs second round beat the current team?

Former Suns like Goran Dragic, Joe Johnson, Boris Diaw and Channing Frye all have appeared in the second round of these playoffs. Could they beat a healthy Suns roster that's under contract today? The Phoenix Suns are in the second round of the playoff after all. Well, at least a complete roster of recent, former Suns is currently playing in the second round of the NBA playoffs. No less than 11 recent Phoenix Suns reside on active rosters of the league's top 8 teams. Only two of our former Suns start for their playoffs teams (Goran Dragic, Joe Johnson) and none are All-Stars. But the...

Post-Game 2 Breakdown: Current mood? Underutilized

The title seems like it's about James Johnson. It could have been. It's not. Another playoff win! What a time to be alive for Raptors fans. It hasn't been easy, with the last two games both going to overtime. Let's see how they pulled out the win. James Johnson, Difference Maker? Hey, look who it is!

The lineup immediately went on a +5 run in 2 minutes. Some will point out that Joe Johnson only took one shot against...
