A Frustrated Joe Johnson

by February 09, 2009

The Hawks’ captain wasn’t exactly feeling chipper following Atlanta’s loss to the Clippers: “‘Had I known we were going to stink this bad, I’d have come in a suit,’ Joe Johnson told a crowd of reporters around his locker after the Hawks deflating 121-97 loss, just their sixth this season at Philips Arena…Truth be told, the chill in Johnson’s tone and game dating back to early last month have been unmistakable. He’s not feeling his best these days. There’s been no real indication as to why, other than the extensive minutes he’s logged all season and his growing frustration with the way teams are scheming to stop him.”
