Anthony Johnson (basketball)

Anthony "Beetlejuice" Johnson (born October 2, 1974 in Charleston, South Carolina) is an American professional basketball player, currently with the Orlando Magic of the NBA. Johnson is a 6'3" (1.91 m) point guard. After leading Stall High School to the South Carolina AA football championship, he received a basketball scholarship at the College of Charleston, where his older brother Steven was a standout years earlier. By his senior year, he developed into one of the top players in the Trans America Athletic Conference (now known as the Atlantic Sun Conference), named conference player of the year in 1997, while leading the College of Charleston to an NCAA basketball tournament first round victory over the University of Maryland at the Memphis regional.

He was the first player in College of Charleston history selected in the NBA Draft, picked by the Sacramento Kings in the late second round. In the 1997-98 season, he started 62 games, averaging 7.5 points per game. Over the next several seasons, he played with the Atlanta Hawks, Orlando Magic, Cleveland Cavaliers, and New Jersey Nets. In the 2003-2004 season, he was signed by the Indiana Pacers, where he had a career resurgence, averaging nearly 22 minutes per game and scoring 6.5 points per game. Prior to the 2004-2005 season, the longtime NBA journeyman earned his first long term contract, a four-year deal with the Indiana Pacers.

Johnson drew a five-game suspension from the NBA as a result of his actions in the Pacers–Pistons brawl which broke out at the The Palace of Auburn Hills near the end of a November 19, 2004 game between the two teams.

During the 2004-2005 season, Pacers' starting point guard, Jamaal Tinsley, missed extended periods of time due to injury, which led to a starting role for Anthony Johnson during much to the latter half of that season.

In the 2006 NBA Playoffs, Johnson scored a career-high 40 points against the New Jersey Nets in Game 6 of the series. Despite his heroics, the Pacers lost 96-90, and the series 4-2 to the Nets.

In the 2006 off-season, Johnson was traded to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for guard Darrell Armstrong, and forwards Josh Powell and Rawle Marshall.

On February 22, 2007, Johnson was traded back to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for a second round draft choice. It will be Johnson's third stint with the team.

On February 16, 2008 the Sacramento Kings acquired Johnson along with Shelden Williams, Tyronn Lue, and Lorenzen Wright in exchange for Mike Bibby.

Anthony was born in Kingston, Jamaica at the Jubilee Hospital. His mother Cynthia Hamilton was a market woman by trade, and his father was a Barbadian who worked at the Sombero Club in Kingston. Anthony’s parents had three children together before separating. They also had other children separately, so Johnson has several siblings.

Johnson was raised by his mother in a tenement yard from the heart of Trench Town. Byah’s yard at 15½ James Street is significant in Johnson's development as an artist and musician. This yard doubles as a popular dancehall on weekends and holidays. Some of the big sound systems of the era played at dances in Byah's yard. As a child, Roy could not help hearing the hot Studio One and Treasure Isles hits of the 60s and early 70s.

Anthony Johnson (reporter)

Anthony Johnson (born in 1956) is a New Jersey reporter for WABC-TV in New York. He is a resident of Teaneck, New Jersey and is married to WNBC reporter Pat Battle. He joined WABC-TV in January 2001 from 1010 WINS radio where he was a reporter from 1992-2001.

On December 6, 2005, a fan of the Opie and Anthony radio show blew an air horn near Johnson's head while he was doing a live shot, in response to an O&A promotion that encouraged listeners to disrupt live broadcasts to promote the program.

In a direct response to the incident, Acting Governor of New Jersey Richard J. Codey issued an official statement decrying the harassment of reporters undertaken "as part of a radio show gag", wishing Johnson "a speedy and healthy recovery", and indicating that the perpetrator should be "prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law" for his actions.

Johnson filed a lawsuit in December 2007 alleging that his hearing had been permanently damaged in the incident, listing the air horn wielder, the two radio hosts, and XM Satellite Radio, which broadcasts the show, in his claim.
