Everyone look at Joe Johnsonís giant truck
 

 


It's the same old story. Locked out NBA player returns back to his college to run a basketball camp, and brings a truck that possibly might be worth up to a quarter of a million dollars with him. The kids at the camp like basketball, and are enjoying the camp, but all they really want to know about is that giant, giant truck. And apparently, over the weekend, all the camp kiddies in question wanted to know about Atlanta Hawk guard Joe Johnson's(notes) massive Ford truck. And also why he makes so much money, which they could probably guess from ... well, look at the size of his truck!

Back in 2008, when word bubbled up about Johnson's massive Ford F-650 Super Truck XUV, we missed out on posting about it on Ball Don't Lie. Maybe because there wasn't a lockout to battle against. Or maybe it's because Joe's new paint job has sent us over the moon.

Either way, Joe's still truck'-er, toolin' around in this diesel-powered beast, which can apparently hold 200 gallons of fuel at a time, which means even despite the poor mileage Johnson no doubt gets, he has to fuel up about once every solstice. Which is also a terrible name for a car, but not a bad car at all.

Joe got back into the news with the truck over the weekend as he met up with kiddie campers on the University of Arkansas (he's a product) campus, and though I'm sure there were plenty of questions about Joe's footwork on a 1/3 screen and roll and just where exactly he thinks the BRI should end up in the upcoming labor negotiations this November (smart kids, these are), that didn't stop a few of them from wondering about the truck, along with a zing:

During a Q&A session Johnson was asked by a kid attending camp: "How much did you pay for your car?" Johnson, of course, declined to answer. Johnson was later asked by an incoming basketball player why he "makes more than Kobe [Bryant]."

[...]

Johnson, a Little Rock native, has come a long way from his college days. Former teammate Jannero Pargo(notes) provided some insight when a camper asked if Johnson owned any video games:

"I remember he'd take out a loan to get a PlayStation 3", Pargo said.

Nice line, Jannero Pargo. And, if anyone is still wondering, the price of this car plus the features he's installed like runs well past $200k. A lot of money, just well within budget for someone that makes, well, more than Kobe Bryant(notes).

Yahoo Sports always taking shots at players. Atlanta offered him a ridiculous sum of money, yet he's taking the hit for spending it on some BS?

I don't get it. In one article, they want to bash the owners and then do a 180 to bash the players.

I don't think I would have driven that sh*t to my camp though. Probably took all the attention away from the game itself.

Is it his fault that the hawks afford him a 6 year, 120 mil contract? Is he supposed to reject it? The players are not at fault for the ludacris contracts they receive. Yeah, i agree he shouldnt of drove that car. Not a good time with the lockout and everything. You're just asking for it.

I really don't think this article was meant to diss Joe about his truck. Even in the article, it says he bought the truck in 2008. It's just that the new paint job (which is nice) made it stand out this time, and its a lockout and they nothing better to do. Plus, the way the kids were getting at him.
