Should JaJuan Johnson play Small Forward instead?

WEEI Johnson attempted only five shots in their opener on Monday and he was more aggressive from the outset in their second game, knocking down a pair of outside shots. But the Celtics need to know A) if he can hold up against bigger opponents and B) what his natural position truly is in the NBA. Johnson is too sleight to handle the physical pounding inside, but he is skilled and...

JaJuan Johnson picked KG’s brain all season long

We’re a bit obsessed with Kevin Garnett, because Kevin Garnett is the trigger to the entire Celtics offseason.  He’s also a freak of nature who played some amazingly great basketball at 36 years old, after 17 years in the league, at the end of a compressed season that killed everyone physically.  The simple fact is, he’s still good, so we still want him. There’s another...

Your Morning Dump... Is JaJuan Johnson ready to start?

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. If Garnett is unable to play, the C's may very well call upon Johnson to get the starting nod. The Celtics may also consider Chris Wilcox, but Johnson appears to be a more likely starter if Garnett doesn...

Does JaJuan Johnson deserve rotation minutes?

I am really busy today (work and other engagements, namely my little brother’s final home high school hoops game of the year), but JaJuan Johnson needs discussing.Clearly, his 33 minutes yesterday were exciting and encouraging. He did a lot of great things — his run-out for an alley-oop, when he beat everyone down the court by a country mile; the following defensive play, when...

JaJuan Johnson on life in the NBA

The rookie is still learning the ropes of the NBA in this express season but seems to be a great character guy in the locker room. I often wonder why the Celtics traded for him and then don't give him minutes to develop. Meanwhile the original draft pick, MarShon Brooks, is challenging for rookie of the year in New Jersey. The only excuse for not giving him time(and its a good...

Gary Washburn, Boston Globe:“Up and down, he’s getting beat up,’’ Rivers said when asked about Johnson’s progress in practice. “He’s excited when he actually gets the [scrimmage] refs to come on the floor, I’ll tell you that.
