Five Things Joe Johnson Instantly Brings to the Miami Heat

Five Things Joe Johnson Instantly Brings to the Miami Heat

5. Playoff Experience

The Heat are a nice mesh of young and old.

While Wade, Luol Deng and Stoudemire all have a wealth of playoff experience, the rest of Miami’s currently healthy players simply don’t have that much of it.

Dragic made one deep playoff run with the Phoenix Suns in the 2009-10 season. Outside of that one year, he has never played in the postseason in seven years in the NBA.

Josh McRoberts has had three different stints in the postseason, but only one in which he has played a major role.

Guys such as Hassan Whiteside, Josh Richardson and Justise Winslow obviously don’t have any playoff experience.

The 34-year-old Johnson has played in the postseason in 10 different years, all of which he was either the best player on the team, or a key starter on the squad.

You simply can’t teach experience and Johnson has that.
