Brooklyn Nets SG Joe Johnson Has New ‘Holy’ Nickname [Video]

Joe Johnson has been somewhat of a savior for the Brooklyn Nets since arriving to the team last year in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks.

He has hit countless game winning shots for the team during his tenure, including a buzzer beater to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder on January 2.

With his 23 points last night in the Nets 91-86 win to his former team to add to his resume, Kevin Garnett has found a new nickname for the shooting guard.

“Joe Jesus.”

I would love to see this on the back of his jersey January 10, as the team faces the Miami Heat in jerseys that will have their nicknames on the back instead of their last names.

Listen to Garnett’s meaning behind the name below.
