Derrick Rose and James Johnson have both expressed their belief in Oklahoma City’s Skirvin Hilton Hotel being haunted. Apparently, when they played for the Bulls earlier in their careers, Rose and Johnson handled the ghosts together. Kevin Durant, via The Bill Simmons Podcast: “I heard D Rose, when they came his second year in the league, he made a rookie a rookie sleep on his floor, because, the year before, he said he felt somebody touch him or something like that. That’s what I heard. So, the next year he made – I think it was James Johnson, it might have been – sleep on his floor.”
Olynyk said he has had the opportunity to hit the practice court with James Johnson, Tyler Johnson, Wayne Ellington, Adebayo and Hassan Whiteside, who apparently is becoming a fast friend. “He’s a great guy, a great character, a super nice guy,” he said of their encounters. “But he’s a beast. I’m really excited to play with him and be able to play with a guy of his size and his abilities on the floor, defensively, offensively, on the glass. He’s awesome to be around and [I’m] really looking forward to playing with him.”
The return of Waiters, Johnson and guard Wayne Ellington means the Heat could have up to 11 players from last season’s team back on the roster. Udonis Haslem is another free agent expected to return. And Whiteside believes that means a jump in the standings. “I definitely think we can be a top four team in the East,” Whiteside said when asked for the Heat’s ceiling. “I don’t think that’s out of the question. I believe in these guys and we’re going to keep building and keep doing what we did last year.”
