Sometimes tries to do too much in a one-and-one match-up off the dribble
Shot selection is questionable at times
Still a bit wirey and needs to add some strength
Summary: Johnson has been as good as advertised after transferring to Syracuse. If his season finishes as well as it has started, the lottery is in his very near future. He is already 22 years old due to transferring and spending a year at prep school, so it is very possible he will bolt for the NBA after this season.
Player Comparison: Shawn Marion. Johnson uses his length and athleticism to be a factor in every aspect of the game just like Marion did when he broke onto the scene in Phoenix. Johnson can score in numerous ways and also is a factor racking up steals and blocks on the defensive end. Johnson is a slightly better shooter than Marion and has a much prettier stroke.
