The truth about Armon Johnson

The sad truth is that Armon really isn't very good! At least I don't see it. He is young and only fairly athletic so he might make a decent backup PG in the future but right now he has got to be the worst backup PG in the NBA. He was never a good play-maker in college just decent. His 3pt shooting percentage dropped every year in college from .346 to .239 and its not like he took more 3s. He took 81 his freshman year, 90 his sophomore and 71 in his junior year.

I like his strength and his deceptive quickness but he still isn't one to make a difficult pass. To be a top play-making PG, he has to be able to make all sorts of passes and Armon can't. His turnovers are up the past few games and his effectiveness is very nonexistent in the 11 minutes a game that he gets. I find strange that Armon continues to get the playing time but there was none of this kind of treatment by Nate with Bayless. Jerryd's rookie numbers are actually very similar to Armon's.

 

                            AST                    TO                  STL                  BLK                     PF                    PTS

  Bayless             1.5                   1.1                     0.3                    0.0                      1.5                    4.3

 Johnson             1.9                   1.6                     0.2                    0.1                      1.3                    4.2

 

So the question is what makes you think that Armon is any good?
