JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaun Moore Go Way Back

Great stuff as usual from Jessica Camerato on our two rookies from Purdue (that go back much farther than that).

Johnson, Moore veterans in each other's life

The 12 year olds who shared the dream of playing in the pros had no way of knowing they would be achieving it together nearly ten years later in a green and white uniform. Johnson and Moore were part of the same basketball circle in Indiana. They first crossed paths during a game held in Johnson’s hometown of Indianapolis. Moore lived in East Chicago (Indiana), three hours north, and the young guard’s skills preceded him in his travels. "He was real laidback but he was one of the better players in the state," Johnson recalled to CSNNE.com. "He got a lot of attention." Moore remembers meeting Johnson, a lanky forward with impressive abilities. "He was goofy," Moore told CSNNE.com with a laugh. "Always being athletic but real skinny."

That last part cracks me up. I want him to earn his minutes the right way, but I can't wait to see that goofy, skinny kid start contributing to the Celtics. Hopefully sometime this year (and hopefully not by default due to injury).
