Player Comparison #8

New, comments

Anthony Johnson. If you've hung around Third Quarter Collapse long enough, you'll notice there is an interesting love/hate relationship with Johnson. During the beginning of the season, the sentiment towards Johnson was definitely filled with more hate. But now, as the year has progressed, the feeling about the one they call 'Dad' has evolved into more love. 

 

No, Johnson isn't the greatest player in the world, but he does his job, he is a class act off the court, and it's always fun watching him get his rare "dunk of the month" (a running gag here at 3QC). Even though the community has begun to appreciate Johnson as a player, he can't escape the inevitable. 

 

It's time to play a game.

One of these players is indeed Anthony Mark Johnson. The other player, however, can not be named. It can be said that this player mimics some of the abilities of Johnson but in a different manner, so to speak. Also, both individuals shared a home-grown path to the NBA.

If you guessed Hudson as the connection to Johnson, congratulations, you have won the game.

 

But if you didn't, be lucky that the penalty isn't impending death.

 

Until next time.
