Several years ago I got into a conversation with another Sabre poster about Joe Harris’s prospects in the NBA. I said I was certain he’d have a long and prosperous career because a friend, an NBA scout, was very high on Joe.
It pains me to say that my friend, Brent “B.J.” Johnson died tragically in Houston yesterday. He was Ralph Sampson’s cousin and I knew him for the past 40+ years. Just an all-around great guy who never met a stranger and had the respect of everyone in the basketball world. Please keep his family in your prayers.
