I agree, though I'm not going to be upset if its RJ or Prospal either.
Johnson represents the reinvigoration and new composition of the team. He just captained team USA, arguably the most formal leadership qualification on the team.
He came to us in a deal for Carter, the guy that represented the worst of the old culture...a high payed, semi motivated, cry baby, that didn't want to play for a struggling team in the midwest.
Contrast that with Johnson, a guy happy to be back in the midwest, excited about the potential leadership oppurtunities, and the prospect of lifting a team up.
Lastly consider his 20 game stats after the trade...the kind of stats that get you nominated for the Norris if you can carry them for 80 games.
I'll be happy with any of the 3 mentioned, but my gut says its JJ's "C" to wear.
