NBA Fans: Stop Bashing Anthony Johnson

Matt Shea@isheax407Correspondent IFebruary 4, 2009

I don't understand why everyone bashes on Anthony Johnson so much.

The Orlando Magic went 4-1 with him as starter. His stats in those games are as follows: 7.4 PPG, 5.6 AST (same as Jameer), 3.6 boards a game, one SPG, and he's doing this in 34 minutes a game.

I have no doubts he can run our offense, along with some of the other guards, since getting Stephon Marbury would be unreal with his salary requirements.

While the Magic could use another point guard, Johnson will get there eventually, and it would be nice to have some support for him. I'll elaborate on this in a future article.

Hopefully, Johnson can prove his worth at the Clippers tonight. I, for one, am happy such an experience point guard plays for the Magic, and I hope fans see it the same way. Let me know how you feel.
