    Default Are you going to play any (expletive) defense?

    http://www.azcentral.com/arizonarepu...1suns0801.html

    After Dwyane Wade's 19-point half, Stoudemire barked at Johnson in front of the team: "Are you going to play any (expletive) defense?"

    Stoudemire got seven shots in the next game and then sat out two with ankle inflammation. Johnson played his best ball after that but told friends he would never re-sign.


    I guess this explains why Joe Johnson didn't want to come back to play for the Suns. I thought all the Suns cared about was outscoring the opposition. He should fit in well in Atlanta, however.

    Aww, did Johnson get his feelings hurt? I still think has everything to do with money and nothing else.

    How could it be about money? The Suns were willing to pay him!
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    Johnson felt disrespected by the entire organization. He wanted 5/$50M last season, and the Suns declined. Then the whole Amare incident from above, and you now there were plenty others similar.
    JJ just felt disrespected. Maybe he's a bit to sensitive, maybe not, but either way he got his wish. Now he'll go on to Atlanta to become the forgotten man, much like Al Harrington.

    If I'm not mistaken didn't he get more money from Atlanta than Phoenix?

    From what I've read JJ does not want to be the 4th best player on a team. Also read soemthing about him wanting to play point guard, which seems crazy to me

    Is this guy the mix of Al Harrington and Jalen Rose or what?

    Suns could have matched the deal and gave him the same amount of money and he didnt want it. He wants to be the man on the team, not a 4th option.
