The Miami Heat have mostly been a mess this season. An already janky roster has suffered injuries everywhere, and only a truly monster season from Hassan Whiteside and a few splendid Goran Dragic games have kept the Heat from having perhaps the worst record in the Eastern Conference. Oh, and also James Johnson.
Johnson is the sort of bench player who essentially plays pickup basketball but in the NBA. Sometimes he gets hot and looks like he could be a valuable rotation piece, other times he doesn’t and may not see the floor for weeks. He also consistently brings dunks, for whatever that’s worth. He’s something like Michael Beasley with the craziness gene pointing a bit more in the right direction.
