I will say this, Joe rarely shoots and passes to the young folks for shots all of the time. They love it

I’m not sure he’s said 10 words combined during his few appearances

Speaking of Joe....is this really a saying? I totally thought Desi was making it up.  (He was definitely making it up as it applies to him).

Joe Johnson Smashing an NBA Record by 1,802 Days Isn’t His Most Impressive Feat
By Evin Demirel -December 23, 2021

More than nine years ago, Arkansas basketball legend Joe Johnson walked onto Boston Celtics’ homecourt as a Brooklyn Net and turned what had been an NBA game into an NHL match for Celtics legend Paul Pierce. On a particularly devastating dribble move, he put Pierce on skates and cast him aside like a master illusionist playing with a doubting child.

Pierce found himself on his hands and knees while Johnson rose, untouched, to cooly swish an 18-foot jumper. At the time, I wrote Johnson’s signature move would make a nice centerpiece as part of a highlights reel for his induction into the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame. But Johnson has since then made a strong case for induction into something much more prestigious (more on that below).



On Wednesday night, after nearly three years out of the NBA, the 40-year-old Johnson made one of the most unusual returns the league has ever seen. Signed to a 10-day contract with the undermanned Boston Celtics, the same team that drafted him out of Arkansas in 2001, Johnson appeared on the court to thunderous applause in the final minutes of the Celtics’ blowout win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

He promptly nailed an elbow jumper, which gave him 20,407 points – the most any Razorback has ever scored in the NBA (by more than 8,000 over Sidney Moncrief). “He joked in the locker room, ‘if I get them on that hip, it’s done, they’re dead,'” Celtics coach Ime Udoka said afterward. “So, we know what he is, everybody said it as they walked in, ‘Joe is a bucket.’ That’s what he is and he’s always been, and so, that’s not going to change. Happy for him.”

Joe is a man. He's 40.

But I guess it was some other guy talking.

I must have completely missed that one. Means nothing to me (except for the sexual way).

Related to drip? Dripping is looking good with your jewelry and clothes, at one point.

I just picked players that weren’t on the list. I’d take Jordan and Lebron over Pippen 100% of the time.

People tend to forget that prime Shaq was unstoppable. Hack a shack forced the nba to change the rules because that was all you could do.

Olajuwon whipped shaq's ass in the finals during shaq's prime. Olajuwon is borderline 3rd team with Wilt. Shaq is 5th team.

After today’s shoot around at the LRAC, Barton Fink and Guinnesshog need some consideration on the above lists…half court, 3 ball only though.

Good shootin'. If the NBA would limit to white guys under 6ft and over 40, we'd have a shot.

Curry
Jordan
Bird
Wilt
Shaq

But if that was too few basketballs to go around, put in Stockton or Magic for Curry.  And Jimmy "Blackface" Kimmel should never, ever be on any top 3 NBA teams list.  He barely makes the top 50.
