Acquired in an offseason trade that sent five players to Atlanta, Joe Johnson was introduced alongside a re-signed Deron Williams in July.
Johnson spoke to fans directly during the rally at Borough Hall following the "Brooklyn's Backcourt" press conference.
Joe averaged 16.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists during his first season as a Net.
Johnson memorably crossed up Celtics forward Paul Pierce in an early-season matchup.
Joe's floater proved one of the Nets' most reliable offensive weapons.
Johnson shot .375 from three-point range, behind only Deron Williams (.378) and C.J. Watson (.411) on Brooklyn.
Johnson created one of the iconic moments of the inaugural season at Barclays Center with a double-overtime buzzer-beater to defeat the Pistons on December 12.
Joe's "giddy-up" celebration is one with which Nets' fans quickly became familiar.
Joe played several tough regular-season games against the Bulls and their breakout second-year shooting guard, Jimmy Butler.
Johnson helped Brooklyn earn a season series split in the "Clash of the Boroughs" against the New York Knicks.
Joe's teammates got used to celebrating with him after big buckets.
Johnson hit his second double-overtime buzzer-beater in Washington, where the shot defeated the Wizards on January 4.
Joe's mid-range game helped the Nets beat the Raptors three times in four tries.
Johnson, a six-time All-Star, often took on difficult matchups, like 2013 Most Improved Player Paul George, an All-Star for Indiana.
Against the Knicks on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Johnson hit his third game-winner of the year.
Even face-guarding couldn't help the Pistons defend Johnson: he averaged 16.3 points on .446 shooting in a 4-0 season series sweep.
Against Milwaukee on February 19, Johnson not only tied the game at the regulation buzzer ...
... but also won it at the overtime buzzer.
In Game Four of the Nets' First-Round series against the Bulls, Johnson hit two floaters in the final 30 seconds of overtime, forcing a second bonus period.
Joe's two game-tying floaters in the first extra period proved for naught when the Nets dropped Game Four in triple overtime.
