Joe Johnson breaks Chris Bosh’s ankles (VIDEO)

Jan 30, 2013, 10:03 PM EDT

Whenever Joe Johnson has Chris Bosh switched on him on the perimeter he should attack — that is a mismatch. Johnson is too quick off the dribble, too good a shot from the outside.

But doing this to a man, that’s just cruel and unusual punishment.

That is as devastating a crossover move as you will see this season.

      Im not that impressed when i see a guard cross up a 7 footer. Do i stand alone?

        Depends. If you said the same if it would have been Lebron crossing up Brook Lopez then I will give you that. A lot of these Bulls (oops, I meant Lakers, whoops Heat) fans would have been going crazy if it was the other way around.

        hey, that’s a self proclaimed HOF 7 footer.

    Does this have any effect on Chris Bosh going into the Hall Of Fame?

    When he has to guard other Centers, Bosh is “undersized”, when he has to guard a 6’8″ guard, he’s a “7 footer”. Poor Hall of Famer Boshy…thanks goodness he’s never to blame for anything cause he’s the most important player on the Heat.

      …..Yes, he’s bigger than a 2-guard but smaller than a traditional center.

      It’s called being a “power forward.”

    worst phrase/meaning in sports… break ankles = crossover

  8. eventhorizon04 - Jan 31, 2013 at 3:43 AM

    Well done by Joe Johnson.

    I still think what he did to Pierce (which left Pierce flailing on the ground) was even more impressive, but this was good.

    The title should read: ” Joe Johnson let his team down again by shooting 4 of 15 = 27% shooting” !!!

    See that’s the problem with reporters and uneducated fans….they focus on one fancy play, that makes people say oooooooH- aaaaaaaaH !

    When the true fact is, Joe Johnson makes more than LBJ, Bosh and Wade !!!! REALLY !!!!

    He plays like a 6th man off the bench…but is being paid SuperStar Money !

    SO WHAT he made one fancy play….he only finished with 16 points on the night and his team got SMOKED !

    Damn. I thought this headline was literal. This is disappointing.

    AI had the badass crossover, almost broke MJ’s ankles.

    • Gordon - Jan 31, 2013 at 1:03 PM

      And yet, now it’s AI whose almost broke.

      (I know…that’s a low blow, but I couldn’t help myself)

    Joe Johnson should play point then since deron struggles now. N deron is shooting better then joe lol Just trade spots

    Atlanta are laughing all the way to the bank after this trade.
