Chicago Bulls rookie James Johnson(notes) made his first meaningful playoff appearance tonight against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Surely he was feeling great. First half minutes against the league's best team, guarding the best player in the league — everything was going so well.
Then things went downhill.
Ouch. Welcome to the playoffs, rook.
On the plus side, at least he got on a poster. That doesn't happen too often for first year players. He might not want to display it though.
Yeah, I can't see that above the fireplace at the Johnson household.
