joe johnson has been phenomenal in the BIG3 this season, hitting clutch shot after clutch shot, 4-pointer after 4-pointer, as the Triplets established themselves as legitimate title contenders. Now, they will have an opportunity to win it all after Iso Joe propelled them to the championship match with yet another stellar performance, capped off by this dagger 3-pointer to eliminate the 3-Headed Monsters in the semifinals.

The Triplets will now face the Killer 3s in the Finals.
Johnson recorded 26 points, five rebounds and three assists for the Triplets, who finished the regular season with the best record in the league. Their only loss came at the hands of Power last July.
This season, Johnson is averaging 21.9 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.1 steals. What’s more impressive is he’s putting up NBA-like numbers in a league that only requires a team to score 50 points in a game.
Joe has made it clear he wants another shot at the NBA, and he’s using the BIg3 as a way to show he’s in top physical condition just in case anyone is interested to sign him next season. Johnson is also unsure if he will be back with the BIG3 next year, saying that he wants to spend the summer with his family.
It is obvious Johnson still has a lot left in his tank, but whether he gets signed by an NBA team remains to be seen. For now, he’s just focused on winning the BIG3 title.
Hopefully, a championship win will pave the way for Joe Johnson’s return to the NBA.
