I’ve been invited to be a contributing author to an upcoming book on the NBA. I was asked who are the Top 10 Most Instrumental Seattle SuperSonics of All Time?
Here is my list (going from #10 – #1). Let me know what you think!
#5 – John “JJ” Johnson
“JJ” gave the title winning championships Sonics the versatility it needed to free up the other players to be more effective. He was among the first of the small forwards with the ability to play either guard position and run the offense effectively. He created the “point forward” position. His selflessness and leadership on the court was one of the reasons that the Sonics were able to win the NBA championship in 1979.
