Murray: Blazers PG Armon Johnson Speaks

28
Chris Murray writes on RGJ.com that Portland Trail Blazers point guard remains confident and busy during this offseason... --------------------------- Johnson said the Blazers had a "great draft" and that he wasn't disappointed the team selected another point guard. He also didn't draw any additional motivation from the pick. "I don't need that to put a fire under me," Johnson said. "I've had that fire ever since I got to the NBA." While Johnson has a guaranteed contract worth $789,000 next season, his ability to earn some playing time and find a niche in the NBA isn't as certain with such a crowded backcourt. He knows the importance of the next 12 months. "This season will be very big for me," Johnson said. "That's why I'm working so hard in the offseason. This next season will be a building block for the rest of my career." --------------------------- ed: bumped to front page
