“We want Joe!”: All-Star Joe Johnson scores in NBA comeback at 40 | NBA

It is visible thanks to the aura. NBA teams must find replacements for players infected with Corona. As a result, Boston signed a contract with Joe Johnson.

The 40-year-old star, who played his last NBA game on May 29, 2018, was ranked 10th by Boston in 2001, but played only 48 games for the Celtics before being sent to Phoenix.

In the final leg of the game against Cleveland, fans called him onto the field. “We want Joe! We want Joe!”. Boston coach Im Odoka gave the fans what they wanted and with less than two minutes on the clock Johnson was allowed to fill it in.

In the last minute, Johnson sealed his comeback with a score, which led to standing ovations. Boston has already won, thanks to Jaelyn Brown’s 34 points.

“I have very fond memories of Joe,” said Brown, who grew up in Atlanta, where Johnson played for a long time. “I’ve seen him shine in the playoffs for the Hawks, so that really resonates.”

Cleveland had won their previous six games, but now they’ve had to do without Rookies Garrett Allen, Evan Mobley and Isaac Okoro, all because of Corona’s NBA rules. The previous Cleveland game was cancelled.
