Hoops Talk out of Halifax with Amir Johnson at Toronto Raptors Training Camp 2012 (Halifax,NS)

Amir Johnson is just a funny dude.  You'll always see Amir joking around with the team, dancing off to the side at practice and pulling jokes on the team plane (see below picture).  But he also adds to this squad with his talent and experience. Even though he is still only 25, Amir has been in the league since 2005 when he was drafted 56th overall as one of the last high schoolers to be drafted in the league.


Amir brings playoff experience as a former member of the Detroit Pistons, when the Pistons were still in their playoff years.  Now, Amir has the opportunity to help bring this team back to the postseason with a more talented roster and a head coach in his second year that is focused on winning with defence.

Check out our interview with Amir at the end of Thursday's practice (he was definitely entertaining):
