What is Your Favorite JJ Moment?

Joe Johnson has given Hawks fans plenty of special moments over the years, and today it was officially announced that he will continue to punch the clock at the Highlight Factory.

It got me to thinking about Joe’s “All-Time Greatest” moments in a Hawks uniform. There have been dramatic buzzer-beaters (see 3/19/10 vs. Charlotte), regular season domination (see 40 pts on 12/19/09 @ Chicago), and long-distance barrages in the playoffs (see Rd 1, Game 7 vs. Miami in ’09). Still, my favorite Joe moment has to be Game 4 of the 2008 series against the Celtics. Joe scored 20 in the fourth quarter alone as Hawks fans were reminded what post-season basketball felt like. I still get chills every time I watch this video:
