Amir Johnson of the Toronto Raptors has not done much in his NBA career to warrant much attention. Most casual fans would probably have a hard time knowing who he is, but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to market himself and get his face out there.

Literally.

Johnson tweeted the above Instagram picture of the shoes he wore for the Raptors season opener. (Thanks to The Basketball Jones for finding this gem).

Now some might consider putting your face on your own shoes might be as the ultimate sign of vanity, but putting his dunking silhouette on a shoe worked out pretty well for Michael Jordan. Maybe Johnson will see similar results.

In case he is reading, “Not Amir Mortal” would look good on a T-Shirt.

And speaking of T-Shirts and of articles of clothing with NBA faces on them, we’d like to remind you of our BSO #Struggleface t-shirts available at this link.
