Joe Johnson’s stock has dropped

If Joe Johnson was a publicly traded company, his stock prices would be dirt cheap after his lackluster performance in the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Orlando Magic.

After averaging 21 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in the Hawks first round series against the Milwaukee Bucks, Johnson only averaged 12 points while shooting 29 percent from the field against the Magic.

Before the season start of the 2009-10 season, Johnson was offered a max contract, $16M/year, by the Atlanta Hawks, but declined it deciding to join the free agent ‘Class of 2010.’

After his performance in the series against the Magic, Johnson will only dream about signing max contracts; whether he stays in Atlanta, I doubt it, or goes elsewhere he’ll receive a nice contract, but nowhere near the max.

Once thought of as a budding superstar, Johnson who will turn 29 years-old in June, has moved to the bottom of the star-studded free agent ‘Class of 2010.’

LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh and Carlos Boozer are also among the NBA’s stars who will be wined and dined by GM’s everywhere this summer as free agents.
