I dont think Norris Cole sucks but hes nothing spectacular, just a decent backup at this point. Joe Johnson is a B+ level player, and Rashard Lewis could be a decent signing in my opinion. Miami might go with this lineup at times
Joe Johnson is not on Lebron/Durant level, no. But will he bring the Nets to the playoffs with Deron? Almost a lock for that.
In that sense he's on a Melo/Amar'e level... probably somewhere between them.
DWill and Johnson will undeniably be a tough duo in the 4th quarter of close games. We're very fortunate to have a couple players that can defend Lopez, otherwise they'd be better then us. I could see the Nets possibly sh*ttin on the celtics next year. Can Garnett still slow down Lopez? D will vs Rondo is a good matchup, but at this point Joe Johnson is better then Pierce, Terry, anyone the Celtics have other then Rondo.
JJ couldn't get them into the 2nd round.
