James Johnson had his best game of the season Monday night, finishing with a team-high 22 points to go with 13 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal.
The 13 rebounds were a career high and the 22 points were one off of his career high.
As it stands right now, most Raptors fans would agree that Harrison Barnes should be the team's draft choice. That's because as a small forward he would address the team's biggest need.
However, with Johnson once again reminding us why the Raptors liked him in 2009 and why the fantasy basketball community is so enamored with him, the Raptors may be wise to revisit their potential draft strategy and select the best player available regardless of position.
Although we have maddeningly managed to win as many games (22) in a 66-game season as we did last year in an 82-game season, we do not have a talented enough team or individual to rule out any player just because of the position he plays.
Hopefully this eruption from Johnson has proven that to the Bryan Colangelo and Ed Stefanski.
