Okay, who is better Brandon Roy or Joe Johnson?

I had argument with this guy. He thinks JJ is better than Roy. However, I think Roy is better slightly overall. He keeps disagreeing. What do you guys think? Roy or JJ?

    Brandon Roy will get there, he is just a step below. Joe Johnson not a play off performer? Anyone watch game 7 of the Celtics Atlants Series. He doesnt lead the team cause Bibby is a veteran. You dont need two leaders on the team. Would you consider Paul Gasol a bad leader just cause he doesn't lead? The thing is Joe Johnson is in his prime while Roy still hasnt hit it yet.

    That's a close call. They're both great players and similar in a lot of aspects. I think Roy has the potential to be better than Johnson by the end of his career, but I don't think he's there yet. Johnson has a better all around game. I think Johnson is a better shooter and has much more range, while Roy is a better player in the clutch. Both are great post players for the position they play, and they have the ability to play more than one position. In the end, my vote goes to Joe.

    Joe Johnson seems to have lost all of the starvation he used to posses, plus Brandon Roy has a element guards means set with a forwards physique so with some greater journey he would be an all around participant. i'd certainly would desire to take Brandon Roy

    Joe Johnson fails to show up in the playoffs. Therefore it's Brandon Roy, it's that simple. I wouldn't even say "slightly." Any player that is supposed to be the team's best player and supposed leader (which Johnson isn't; Bibby is the leader.) that fails to show up in the playoffs should take scrutiny. Brandon Roy is a better player but more importantly, a leader.

    theyre both solid all around players

    they could go out and score 30+ points with out you knowing it

    however, b roy is a better defensive player. which i think is the only category b roy beats jj cuz theyre both so even its real hard to say but i say

    B ROY.

    Roy easily

    Joe Johnson fails at leadership without Bibby by ball hoging sometimes. Roy on the other hand doesnt ball hog AT ALL but shows up when his team needs him.

    Roy aka "Silent Assasin" as dubbed by lebron

    Joe Johnson is certainly a very good player and a legitimate all star but I wouldn't say he's superstar material. Not now, perhaps not in the future. Roy is now a legitimate all star and a very probable superstar in the future.
