  • Some Interesting Quotes from Johnson About the 2010-11 Raptors

    Full story here

    The problem with what he says is that you have to be on the court and not in foul trouble to do what he is talking about.

    Same interview with some different stuff included here

    Amir Johnson

    - On the mindset going up against the Celtics: “We’re not worried about them, we’re worried about what we can do against the big men. We obviously know we’re quicker than their big men so once we get on the floor, we’re definitely going to try to run, get Shaq to run. Outrun everything. Figure out a ways that we can stop them defensively.”

    - On how training camp has been different time time around: “I tell you, I think from my opinion, it’s way tougher. The intensity level has started at 110 percent from the get go. We’re running down the floor every play, every possession. it doesn’t matter what we’re doing, what drill we’re doing, we’re giving it 110 percent.”

    - On why it’s been different: “Everybody has a sense, everybody wants to win. Everybody is trying to downgrade us. We’re the underdogs, we’re looking at that like, we’re going to kick some butt. We’re ready, hungry to play.”

    - Starting versus coming off of the bench. Does it matter?: “It doesn’t because I know when I get in the game I’m going to give it my all and help my team. I’ll do whatever I have to do. Whatever the coach needs to do. On the bench, coming off the bench, I’m going to give energy if I’m starting, either way, Imma bring up the intensity level all the way.”

    - How he has known people are “downgrading” them: “I’ve been on Twitter and people tweet me what people say. I heard what Charles Barkley said and all of that BS. We’ve just gotta prove people wrong. We kind of went out and beat on Phoenix because people think we’re the worst team in the league. We’re going to prove a lot of people wrong.”

    - On how they’ve been motivating each other on the floor: “We’re a young group of guys and we want to get out and run and score the ball so when you have that, our intensity level picks up and our play picks up. Especially when you’ve got two bullies out there in Joey Dorsey and Reggie.”
