Johnson in For the Long Haul

Chris Johnson has set out to prove doubters wrong ever since he stepped on the court for the Boston Celtics.

Hard work pays off, and the Celtics’ Chris Johnson is a perfect example of just how hard one must work to get where they want to in life.

With his second 10-day contract about to expire this past Thursday, Johnson learned that the team planned to sign him to the team for the remainder of the season. The 6-foot-6 guard is averaging a modest eight points, 2.6 rebounds, and one assist in his minutes off the bench with the Celtics. He has more than earned his place with the C’s, showing little fear in shooting and driving the basketball along with a sense of determination and heart that is rarely seen in the league nowadays. It’s been a treat to watch this guy play when he has been on the floor for this team, and it should be even more enjoyable to watch what he can do down-the-stretch as he’s sure to gain more minutes on a young team that is slowly easing its way out of contention.
