He's underrated by casual basketball fans but overrated/overhyped by basketball enthusiasts.

Still a very good player though.

Yeah, I don't think Joe Johnson is a superstar, as some basketball connoisseurs would make him out to be. He is a solid scorer, and leads by example. Guyslike Kobe, D-Wade, and Lebron - trues superstars - are light years ahead of Joe.

A better way to put your statement, which is also what ive been saying for a while now, is that hes the really good but really inconsistent.

Yeah, he's overrated now. He's still a damn good player but he's not much of a leader. And can't be your #1 guy. A great #2, sure.

I don't know, if Wade, Lebron and even Kobe were not able to be gotten in free agency in 2010, I guess I would settle for Joe Johnson.


Not to bad to say that you can settle on him.

Maybe it is just me cause everytime I see him play the Nets, the guy goes nuts and shoots the Three ball lights out.

Not as good as Kobe and Wade or B. Roy, but if I was told we signed him due to not being able to get any of the others mentioned, I would not be upset.

And to be honest Ive always gassed him up to me peoples. He can be dominant as anybody at times (look at boston last yr like you mentioned) but theseeight games the Hawks have played he's had one above average game. He's capable of a lot more but since the hawks are on nat'l tv one time a reg.season, people dont get to see that..but recently he's just cracked for whatever reason. His defense is underrated and he's a pretty good passer.Superstar? I dont think so but he's def. on that all-star level if that makes sense. imo anyways

basically. he has the switch, its just not workin for whatever reason. i dont think he worked on his game in the off season
mike woodson should draw up a play for him so he isnt constantly getting doubled at half court
JJ is my main man and all, but he's isnt living up to the "3rd Best SG in the League" i was taggin him at the beginning of the season.
