Twitter Has Nothing But Love For Joe Johnson After Late Shot For Celtics

Johnson signed a 10-day contract with the Celtics on Wednesday


Joe Johnson officially is back in the NBA.

The 17-year veteran signed a 10-day contract Wednesday with the Boston Celtics, and in the same day, nailed his first NBA jump shot since the 2017-18 season as a member of the Houston Rockets.

Since his time in Houston the 40-year-old played in the Big3 where he was named the Most Valuable Player in 2019 and also has seen some time in the G League as he’s attempted to make an NBA comeback.

The shorthanded Celtics welcomed the Cleveland Cavaliers to TD Garden on Wednesday night and earned an impressive 111-101 win. Johnson saw some fourth-quarter action and made the most of it.

Social media exploded with praise afterward and had nothing but love for the seven-time All-Star:

Johnson was drafted 10th overall by the Celtics in the 2001 NBA Draft and after 20 years still can go get a bucket.
