Joe Johnson Named Microsoft Player of the Week for Second Straight Week
By BIG3 July 21, 2021
Iso Joe wins back to back Microsoft Player of the Week honors to start the season. He beat out Leandro Barbosa (Ball Hogs), Jason Richardson (Tri-State), and Mike Taylor (Ghost Ballers).
Joe Johnson stepped it up another level after a dominant week 1. In week 2 he broke the single game scoring record in the BIG3 with 34 points carrying the Triplets to a narrow victory over Power. Johnson also added 9 rebounds, 4 assists, and 3 steals.
The stats don’t tell the whole story, though. The Triplets were down by 10 when Joe put the whole team on his back. A key steal off of Royce White and a fade away 3 that sent Joe to the floor pulled the momentum towards the Triplets when they needed it most. He drilled the game winning 3 pointer to ice the game.
If Iso Joe can keep this up, another BIG3 MVP and possible Championship will be right around the corner.
HERE ARE THE FINAL RESULTS VOTED BY THE FANS.
Joe Johnson received 63% of the vote
Leandro Barbosa received 18% of the vote
Jason Richardson received 13% of the vote
Mike Taylor received 6% of the vote
