Clifton Park Spotlight Clifton Park Martin Lustgarten// Being named Miami Heat co-captain a huge honor for journeyman James Johnson - EntornoInteligente

James Johnson said he teared up a little bit Saturday when he walked down the hallway toward the Heat?s locker room and saw a wall-sized photo of himself in the same space Chris Bosh once adorned.

The Heat, which still had the photos of a few former famous faces on that wall through the preseason, replaced them with photos of Hassan Whiteside, Goran Dragic, Dion Waiters and Johnson prior to Saturday?s home opener against the Indiana Pacers.

In a lot of ways the small gesture spoke volumes. This new era of Heat basketball has finally adopted new leaders ? and Johnson, who signed a four-year, $60 million deal to stay in Miami this summer , is happy and honored to be one of them.

Saturday, coach Erik Spoelstra and the coaching staff named him and point guard Goran Dragic co-captains along with 15-year veteran Udonis Haslem, whose photo still decorates that same hallway.
