JaJuan Johnson: Mock Interview

I missed my chance this year to do a mock draft, so instead I decided to pretend to sit down with the Celtics (eventual) number 1 draft choice, JaJuan Johnson and talk about his incoming season (Stern willing) in a Mock Interview.

JC-H: Congratulations on becoming the newest member of the Celtics organization.

JaJuan Johnson: Thanks man, really excited to be here and to be doing this interview. Can you make sure to refer to me as JaJuJo, I want people to start getting excited about that nickname.

JC-H: No problem, JaJuJo, so first question, what’s the biggest difference between you and Chris Johnson?

JaJuJo: My name is Jajuan.

JC-H: The last Celtic to be a number one pick from Indiana was Eric Montross, how does that make you feel?

JaJuJo: Sad, ashamed, a little angry, but I like to look on the positive side, I can’t do much worse, can I?

JC-H: Are you excited about being mentored by one of the all time greats, Kevin Garnett?

JaJuJo: I am, my father has been yelling at me non-stop since draft day to prepare me for the season.

JC-H: It’s important to have mental toughness in this league, what’s the most challenging thing you’ve faced so far in your young life?

JaJuJo: I was on the New Jersey Nets for a few minutes.

JC-H: Let’s do a little word association. I’ll say the name of a player and you say the first thing that comes your mind…Ray Allen.

JaJuJo: 3 point master.

JC-H: Paul Pierce.

JaJuJo: I’d like to avoid being stabbed in the face my rookie season.

JC-H: Delonte West.

JaJuJo: My mom is happily married.

JC-H: Von Wafer.

JaJuJo: E’Twaun Moore.

JC-H: Big Baby Davis.

JaJuJo: I’ll look good in number 11.

JC-H: Kevin Garnett.

JaJuJo: Yes, Sir!!

JC-H: Jeff Green.

JaJuJo: Who?

JC-H: He joined the Celtics after the All Star break, was supposed to give them an offensive punch going into the playoffs.

JaJuJo: Are you sure? I don’t remember seeing him in the playoffs.

JC-H: What is the most exciting thing for you about playing for the Celtics next year?

JaJuJo: Not having to play for the Nets.

JC-H: Any final thoughts you want to share with our readers?

JaJuJo: Don’t expect too much and you wont be disappointed.

    If JaJuJo don’t laugh with us (Jeff Green, too) on this one I’m afraid he will have a short, forgettable career in the NBA. Now, how do you pronounce JaJuJo? Is it with all hard ‘J’s’ GhaGhuGho, or os the second one soft … GhaWhuGho?

    Mock interview? You shouldn’t put words in a young rookie’s mouth like that, especially when he already has a long road ahead of him to prove himself to his peers and Celtics Fans.
