Tyler Johnson knows what he would do if somebody were about to drop 100 points on his team. “You’re not getting 100 on me,” the Heat guard said. “I’m going to hard foul you. Once you start sniffing 80, I have to give you a hard one. I have to. And as a coach I’m definitely sending double, triple (teams). We’re not going to be that team for sure.”
Tyler also delicately (and respectfully) pointed out how the level of competition and the talent level 55 years ago is not quite what is it today and believes he shares a locker room with a player who has the skills today that would have been as dominant as Wilt’s back in the day. “If Hassan played back then I bet he’s get 100,” Johnson said.
Seven months later, he’s still shocked to see how much Brooklyn wanted him. “Man it was a great feeling,” Johnson told NetsDaily with a smile. “You can tell by the conversations we were having that they were very interested in the sense of making me a focal point of this franchise, so I was definitely humbled by the belief they had in me. I was ready to go over there [Brooklyn]. Obviously I love Miami, but I was ready for Brooklyn. Who could’ve called the way this all played out this summer?”
