Move over Amir Johnson, Detroit has a new player to mythologize

Amir Johnson is one of my favorite Pistons of all-time, and that appreciation developed without ever watching him play. I just looked at his D-League box scores. They were breathtaking.

Well, move over Amir. After his first game with Fort Wayne, Vernon Macklin is the new Amir Johnson. Check out what he did: 18 points, 18 rebounds, 4 blocks, 3 assists, 1 steal. I think the ‘Free Macklin’ movement was already long underway, but if he has more D-League performances like this, there will be no stopping it.
