Yeah he's overrated when you compare him to his contract and all-star appearances. He's still a good player though just not worth the contract he has.

He's their 3rd most effective player behind Josh Smith and Al Horford.

I think Atlanta will try to package him with Josh Smith this summer to get rid of his contract.Any takers?

Phoenix,Dallas,Brooklyn,Orlando

I can see these teams willing to take on Joe Johnson's contract along with adding Josh Smith.

Raptors need some star power and a SF bad....how much are those two contract though, like 35 mil total lol.

IIRC the reason the Hawks ownership gave him that deal was because they were planning on selling the team anyway.

It's a shame that he's getting such a bad reputation for his contract though. He's a very good player and I think he will be throughout the deal (unlike guys like Rashard Lewis, Gilbert Arenas, etc.) but he'll always be tied down by the contract he signed which is unfair. Who would turn down that contract?

I really hope we get new ownership first. Then a new GM, new coach, and trade any and everybody. Re-build throughout.

I don't know if non-Hawks fans know this, but it's not all the players fault. Look at who our GM and owners are.

05-07-2012, 01:48 AM
You're such a garbage poster, easily the most ignorant I've seen on PSD. Nobody is overrating him, people knew he wasn't worth his contract and that it would turn into a very bad contract if his game declined with his age. Yes, he is overpaid but he is also a multiple time all star, and was once considered a franchise-player type talent. He is still a good player, just because he is overrated doesn't make him a bum in any way.

and 6000+ posts since December? Looks like you're the bum.

Mike, you played great today! :clap:

Orlando should call up ATL this offseason and go after Johnson/Jsmoove,im sure ATL would take anything back just to get rid of his contract.

Jameer(exp),Redick(exp),Turk,Baby,1rd for Johnson,Jsmoove

A big 3 of Dwight/Johnson/Jsmoove would be the 2nd best team in the East behind Miami.

I really don't mean this as a slam, but I laughed my *** off when I read he signed that deal. He had just come off a TERRIBLE series against the Magic I believe, and they reward him with that contract?

It will end up sending the Hawks into mediocracy over the next 3 years. He is a 2nd tier SG in a league lacking great SG's. That kind of player aint worth $20+ million a year.

If the Suns were going to do that, then expect every bad contract to go back to Atlanta and some 1st round picks going back to Phoenix. That's a hardcore salary dump for Atlanta even with Smith involved.

We only offered him like 12 mill. SO we would of still traded for Melo and probably Tyson too. So its not like it would have been a terrible deal lol. Like everybody else said he is a good player, just not elite or worth his contract

Damn some people sure like to go in on players for every little thing. The man went off just the game before. That team didn't show up. Joe isn't just a good player he's great. The problem is he's being paid like he's elite and that he is not.

oh I remember this well. there was this guy on here. didn't know a thing about basketball. he had played volleyball on the beach in California and he opened an account back when all this was going on. Smart but really naive guy about hoops. But the first topic he posted on was the Joe Johnson deal. And i'll never forget he said "That's Insane! How can Atlanta pay a 30+ guy that much money for that long! Crazy". Anyway that was the take of this guy who never followed pro basketball and now is back in Huntington Beach playing volleyball all day.

No I think everybody knows they need to blow it up,but like I said the only way to blow it up is too trade Joe Johnson's contract with either Jsmoove or Horford as a sweetner,because nobody is trading for Johnson's contract straight up.

Eventually the Hawks will amnesty him. I suspect the Hawks are just waiting for the right moment; the moment that the Hawks give up on trying to win or the Hawks have the opportunity to get a player that management wants but JJ's contract's in the way. The crippling effect of 90 million on the salary cap over four years will catch up eventually.


Would yo really amnesty this guy, paying him 20 mil a year to play against you? Hell noYes. You'd be paying him 20 million to save yourself from his salary cap luxury taxes and the opportunity to rebuild your beloved franchise. It's only a one in thirty chance he's your opponent in any given game.

Never understood this deal for the Hawks. In order to give that much money to a player you gotta think to yourself, "can we win a championship with Joe Johnson as our best player?" And the answer is obviously no. Still a good player though, but probably the 3rd, maybe 2nd, option on a championship caliber team.

I would actually consider this he would be a great number 2 option behind Melo. Melo could switch to the 4 and Joe would get plenty of looks from downtown if Jeremy Lin can penetrate and kick it out to the open man. But it makes no sense for the hawks unless they move Josh Smith

05-07-2012, 02:28 PM
everybody who plays professional sports is overpaid. These guys play games for a living. That said, Joe Johnson is a great player who makes more than he should, but, that is what the market determined he was worth. If he had Steve Nash playing beside him he'd look better than he does right now ;-)

He attempted 8 freaking shots in the game and quit on his team. Even the TNT guys called him out yesterday. The guy is probably the 3rd best player on the team.

Didn't we already have this thread...two years ago? He was overpaid the moment he signed that contract. BUT, everyone including the Hawks knew this. They signed him because they were on the verge of contending. But because they were over the cap, if they let him go they didn't have the ability to sign an equivilant replacement. So they overpaid. It's not rocket science.

And the 30 million in salaries (Joe 18, Josh 12) Will match up nicely with Gerald Wallace's 9.5m and the 1 million from Brooks right? Even with the Nets 4M in trade exceptions it won't even come half way. The only way it gets done is if the Nets extend Lopez contract and trade him along with it to match salaries or let him walk completely. Either way he doesn't end up with the Nets.

Maybe Johnson would play better with a bigman like Dwight who would take pressure off him,they would be a poor man's version of Penny/Shaq.

Jameer(exp),Redick(exp),Turk for Johnson,Teague

Atlanta gets 2expiring contracts,and Turk has basically 2yrs left on his contract with the last year non guarenteed.Oh yeah they get rid of Joe's contract so they can rebuild.

Orlando gambles on Johnson,and gets a young up and coming pg with Teague.

Orlando should call up ATL this offseason and go after Johnson/Jsmoove,im sure ATL would take anything back just to get rid of his contract.

Jameer(exp),Redick(exp),Turk,Baby,1rd for Johnson,Jsmoove

A big 3 of Dwight/Johnson/Jsmoove would be the 2nd best team in the East behind Miami.
No way Atl does that trade.The Hawks are not trading two of their best players within the division.Besides they can do much better than that proposal.

Why would Orlando do this? They gambled on arenas and it failed and your telling me they would want to gamble on another bad contract? If that's the case the Otis needs to be Fired why?

Rashard Lewis
Gilbert arenas
Joe Johnson

Im calling it right now if Brooklyn can't get Dwight in a trade this offseason,they will trade for Johnson,Jsmoove to convince Dwill to resign.

Wallace,Brooks,1rd top3 protected for Johnson,Jsmoove.

Dwill
Johnson
Green
Jsmoove
Lopez

That's a contender in the East.

Take that protection off that pick and you have a deal.

That was what I was saying that their pick is top 3 protected and will go to Atlanta.

If Charlotte doesn't get the #1 pick,Maybe MJ trades for Johnson/Jsmoove they need star power bad.

No to this, we are trying to rebuild the right way... why would we want to be ATL #2? If that was the case we would have just kept Wallace, Jackson and continued adding pieces striving for a playoff appearance and maybe a first round win at most.

DO not want!

I know we are saying his contract brutal... but just imagine the Bargin some team would get if they Amnesty him. Imagine a team like Chicago having JJ there for like 3 mill per year :drool:

I think Atlanta has to finally admit that they aren't gonna go anywhere with the roster they have and should get rid of everyone. Yes, they might set up another team with a great player for a bunch of years (possible domination depending on what team he would land in), but it shouldn't matter to that franchise as when the value of JJ starts to tail off (his game falls off), that is when Atlanta's rebuild should be ending and they would be back near contention.

I decided to bring this thread up because of a similar thread made in the NBA forum.

And the fact that my projection is right, no matter where Joe Johnson plays and which uniform he plays, he is what he is and will never truly amount to that large putrid contract that was given to him 2 yrs ago.
