Eddie Johnson Rumors

Eddie Johnson: I am going to truly miss this guy here! He put me on the track that changed my life. He made me fall in love with the game of Basketball and because of it my life changed and allowed me to get a college scholarship @illinimbb meet my wife Joy, produce two wonderful kids (Justin and Jade), play 17 years in the NBA, work for great organizations @suns @siriusxmnbaradio @hoopshypeofficial and have great friends and supporters all over the world. If it was not for Darren alias Bunny telling me to put that glove down and get my tall lanky ass on the basketball court and then taking on the role as my father figure because my biological dad deserted me. My odds of surviving the inner city of Chicago would have been seriously reduced.

But Johnson knows that New York can be tough on coaches. One of Johnson’s best friends is former Knicks coach Mike Woodson, who was fired by Phil Jackson one season after winning 54 games. “It’s not an easy place to coach,” Johnson said during a phone interview. “That’s the part that’s going to surprise Jeff. I don’t think anybody realizes how intense it is until you’re actually in it. I had an opportunity to experience it through Mike Woodson. I saw how he had to navigate it. It’s not easy. I’m going to pray for him.”
