NBA Draft 2001: Wednesday, June 27
Joe Johnson

Joe Johnson
No. 10 pick, Boston Celtics

Q: Are you surprised by the pick?

Johnson: No. When I worked out for Boston, I felt like it was my best workout and I'm fortunate to have the chance to play with these guys.

Q: How do you see yourself fitting in?

Johnson: With Antoine (Walker) and Paul (Pierce) there, I can see myself playing big guard. It really doesn't matter. I just want to get there and have fun.

Q: Why did you sign with SFX?

Johnson: It's a great company and they've done a great job with all their clients, and I just want to thank them for that.

Q: What did you show in the workouts?

Johnson: I think my lateral quickness and how I handle the ball and make other players around me look good. I think they liked it a lot.

Q: Were you nervous?

Johnson: Yeah, I had people telling me I was late first round. I was nervous until he called my name.
