I can guarantee he is a legit 6'9. If you want proof I will post it.
He's taller than my husband, who's 6'8". I've seen them side-by-side.
Just wanted to point out a couple of things that have helped JOB improve and finally get a bit more aggressive.
His injuries definitely affected his play, both physically and mentally, of course. But I've always thought he didn't seem to understand his own strength and size. Didn't know how to use it.
Odoh has challenged him in practice, and Anthony Hickey has been relentless on motivating him. Hickey has demanded stuff from JOB, and the high screen play they run. Anthony understands to try to get the ball to Johnny in the paint as much as possible if JOB's not doubled teamed. Last night was an example. Anthony's shot was off last night,and he saw how well Johnny was doing and set up the offense so that he, and the other players, fed JOB night long.
