SALTY DOG

NBA ROLE: DEFENSIVE-MINDED BIG

 

An awesome teammate & defender, fans and coaches naturally gravitate towards Amir Johnson; impactful ‘energy guy’ – goes hard at all times, yet stays within the flow of the game while making ghost contributions that don’t end up in box scores (hard screens, defensive sliding + communication); won’t complain about shots or minutes; biggest mark comes on D – hedges out well, keeps hands straight up when contesting interior shots; decent rebounder, boxes out well; has added some range to his quick set shot but not a 3pt. shooter by any means yet; solid float game as a roll man; one of the league’s top ‘glue guys’/backup bigs – Los Angeles native has enjoyed a long NBA career as a role-playing power forward up front (studied under the likes of Rasheed & Ben Wallace whilst a teenager in Detroit)
