Wes Johnson Welcomed to the NBA Politely by Luther Head
It was nice of Luther Head to give Wes Johnson a kind greeting into the league.
After a turnover in the second quarter against the Kings, Sebastian Telfair did his Through The Fire thing by throwing a pass that probably looked better in his mind than in reality to a streaking Wesley Johnson on the break. Wes did the rest:
What kills me about the reaction to the dunk is Wes seems like the nicest guy in the world. The mean streak face he exhibits after the dunk is sort of hilarious. I love seeing a guy like that be impressed by his own athletic accomplishment.
I still contend that DeMarcus Cousins should have been the pick at #4 but I’m glad the Wolves got a guy like Wes Johnson in the draft. I don’t care if he becomes a perennial All-Star or not. He’s just the type of guy who is fun to have on your team and watch him develop, no matter what his ceiling ends up being.
It’s like Mark Madsen only with basketball skill and fun plays.
Welcome to the league, kid.
