View Full Version : Joe Johnson's huge *** truck

It's the same old story. Locked out NBA player returns back to his college to run a basketball camp, and brings a truck that possibly might be worth up to a quarter of a million dollars with him. The kids at the camp like basketball, and are enjoying the camp, but all they really want to know about is that giant, giant truck. And apparently, over the weekend, all the camp kiddies in question wanted to know about Atlanta Hawk guard Joe Johnson's(notes) massive Ford truck. And also why he makes so much money, which they could probably guess from ... well, look at the size of his truck!

Back in 2008, when word bubbled up about Johnson's massive Ford F-650 Super Truck XUV, we missed out on posting about it on Ball Don't Lie. Maybe because there wasn't a lockout to battle against. Or maybe it's because Joe's new paint job has sent us over the moon.

Either way, Joe's still truck'-er, toolin' around in this diesel-powered beast, which can apparently hold 200 gallons of fuel at a time, which means even despite the poor mileage Johnson no doubt gets, he has to fuel up about once every solstice. Which is also a terrible name for a car, but not a bad car at all.

Joe got back into the news with the truck over the weekend as he met up with kiddie campers on the University of Arkansas (he's a product) campus, and though I'm sure there were plenty of questions about Joe's footwork on a 1/3 screen and roll and just where exactly he thinks the BRI should end up in the upcoming labor negotiations this November (smart kids, these are), that didn't stop a few of them from wondering about the truck, along with a zing:

During a Q&A session Johnson was asked by a kid attending camp: "How much did you pay for your car?" Johnson, of course, declined to answer. Johnson was later asked by an incoming basketball player why he "makes more than Kobe [Bryant]."



Johnson, a Little Rock native, has come a long way from his college days. Former teammate Jannero Pargo(notes) provided some insight when a camper asked if Johnson owned any video games:

"I remember he'd take out a loan to get a PlayStation 3", Pargo said.

Nice line, Jannero Pargo. And, if anyone is still wondering, the price of this car plus the features he's installed like runs well past $200k. A lot of money, just well within budget for someone that makes, well, more than Kobe Bryant(notes).

Joe Johnson is a near max player...

I'm guessing people expect him to drive a 87 el dorado ???

Who cares what the thing looks like, how much it costs, or how big it is ???

If he likes it, that's all that matters...

I'm guessing that if people could see inside that thing, they might be changing their tune a little lol...


Also, it's not as bad as Gilbert Arenas spending 5 grand a day on shark food... Who the hell buys 2 sharks and then puts them in their backyard ???

It may be ugly, but I'm pretty sure the truck is special because of its size and interior space, he could probably fit an apartment in there.

Why are ppl acting like this is something different? The truck is 200K WOW! Half the celebs and stars out there get EXOTICS that are 100K more than that. He just got a super truck instead of a super car.

Has anyone checked Kobe Bryant's salary???? LMFAO! Kobe makes 25 million this year, 27 million next year, and 30 million the year after!

Ummmm......Joe JOhnson isnt no where close to that money. In his last year, Johnson will make 24 million.

Article really needs to check its facts

You may want to look up the history of Hennessy Performance before saying any of their products are superior to anything.


I'd rather buy a house or boat.

He probably has a couple of each already.


Why are ppl acting like this is something different? The truck is 200K WOW! Half the celebs and stars out there get EXOTICS that are 100K more than that. He just got a super truck instead of a super car.

I agree, you can't buy a new Ferrari for under $200k. You have celebs buying $300,000 Maybach's that are just tarted up old Mercedes S Class, now that's stupid.


he's compensating for something

Yeah, the lack of funds you are contributing to the economy.

Truck looks a bit awkward, but it wouldn't be so bad if not for that ugly *** paint. Redo it, Joe.

07-06-2011, 04:09 PM
The article writer is an idiot. Kobe Bryant's salary was 150% of Joe Johnson's salary for the 2010-2011 season, was more than Joe Johnson's salary will be in 5 years, and will be more each year for the duration of his contract.

naps
07-06-2011, 04:29 PM
wow...Reason why you shouldn't overpay middle of the pack players. Joe Johnson is just proving he wasn't worth that bigass contract.
