Is Joe Johnson a productive All-Star? Absolutely

Did the Atlanta Hawks overpay to keep him? Most definetely

You would think that with the possibility of a cancelled NBA season this year, players would cut back and try and save a penny whenever possible. Well, not Joe Johnson. The shooting guard from Arkansas was instrumental in bringing the Hawks back to relevancy ever since he arrived in a trade with the Suns — and for his efforts, he was eventually rewarded with a max contract. As a result, he’s immune to the potential effects of the NBA lockout (we would think). Johnson has got that Carson Palmer¬†cash, and he lets us know that he’s got money to blow with his¬†museum-like shoe closet.

“I wanted to display all of my shoes, so I had this 500-square-foot closet made. I just thought this would be a cool idea, and it would almost look like a museum. I had a fingerprint sensor put on the door to make sure I’m the only one who can get in here. I mostly wear Air Jordans. All of the Jordan guys are selected by Michael Jordan himself. It’s kind of hard to tell MJ no. I have 436 pairs of sneakers in here, and they’re mostly unworn. I’ll wear all of them eventually.”

436 Pairs? He’s living every 13 year old’s dream. Do you Joe — Antoine Walker is watching.
