Another AllUCanHeat Miami Heat 1-on-1 is here, with 2018-19 regular season play right around the corner.
Imran Ebrahim (@iebrahim81): Tyler Johnson has to be one of the more disappointing stories for the Miami Heat this preseason. In four games, he averaged only 6.8 points per game, in roughly 25 minutes of playing time. To put this in perspective, he averaged 11.7 points in 28.5 minutes of playing time in the 2017-18 season. Be ready to close your eyes… Because his shooting numbers are even worse. He’s shot 9-for-35 from the field, which is just a smidge over 25 percent. Not only is he now getting approximately $18 million, but it’s not a great thing that every time I log onto Twitter during a Heat game, there’s a tweet about him fumbling away a possession as the ball-handler or bricking yet another shot. (Also, does anyone actually play defense in the preseason? I think it’s a little concerning that opponents are scoring 112.8 points per game against this Heat team. And yes, players are in and out… But there’s gotta be some semblance of defense, and with just one game in the preseason left, I don’t know if it’ll magically appear against the Atlanta Hawks on Friday or the Orlando Magic on opening...
