Ivan Johnson has a reputation to uphold.
He’s doing his best.
At about the 1:00 mark of this video, Johnson – the former Atlanta Hawk who spent last season in China – explains his mentality for getting back in the NBA: “I’ve got to kind of [f–] anybody in front of me.”
Playing for the Mavericks’ summer-league team, Johnson sure took that attitude to heart in a way you rarely see in the Vegas league:
