Celtics Talk TV: What to expect from Johnson and Lee?


The 2015-2016 NBA schedule release is coming up Wednesday evening, which means we’re that much closer to the Celtics debuts of newly acquired big men David Lee and Amir Johnson.

CSNNE’s A. Sherrod Blakely and Jimmy Toscano agree that while neither veteran power forward will turn the Celtics into contenders, both will provide plenty to both the team and the fans.

“Both are good, solid players who will contribute,” said Celtics’ Insider Blakely. “Johnson is good in the pick and roll and Lee gives the Celtics the low post scoring that they haven’t had much of the past couple of seasons.”

Toscano thinks the fans will love Johnson, who plays “with the same mentality as Jae Crowder. He’s a fighter, an energy guy, someone who will always be running up and down the court and doing it at both ends. He’ll be a fan favorite.”
