Johnson is as talented of a player as you’ll find in the BIG3
The 6’11 Chris Johnson led the BIG3 in blocks per game in 2021, and it was no fluke. Johnson is second all-time in career blocks at LSU, behind only Shaquille O’Neal. Johnson isn’t just a big body. He has serious hops, and actually won a dunk contest in the CBA in 2014. Combine that with an obvious aptitude for timing his blocks, and you have one of the most fearsome shot blockers in the BIG3.
He’s also a serious threat on offense. He’s more than capable of playing above the rim and getting fantastic finishes inside, he has range out to the three-point line, and he can put the ball on the floor like a wing. There’s nothing on a FIREBALL3 court Johnson can’t do.
