DJ was really the forgotten man of the Celtics' dynasty of the mid-80s, always quietly staying in the large shadow of the Celtics' big three. But don't let his calm demeanor fool you; Johnson could play. Already a Finals MVP before he even got to Boston, he was a defensive stopper on one end who was the Celtics' Magic Johnson kryptonite while becoming a reliable option on offense as well. Considering how little-heralded he was coming out of college, he enjoyed one of the more remarkable careers in league history.
