Possibly the first point forward of the NBA. Despite playing alongside Dennis Johnson and Gus Williams, JJ would also get his chance at handling the ball at the perimeter and finding others for good looks. 6 points and 6 assists might not seem like much but in a way this is indicative of what his role was on this Sonics squad – to be the selfless connector. I had to upload some footage of him. April 13, 1980.
