Seattle Sports Legend JJ Dies
has died. Johnson was on the 1979 Sonics team that beat the Baltimore Bullets for the NBA title. When I worked at the Overlake UPS Store (I have since moved to the Crossroads UPS Store), JJ was a regular customer. He was soft spoken, maybe a little surly, and bought nickel and dimes stuff. I believe he worked at a car dealership down the road. He would speak of himself in the third person as JJ. I asked him one day to show me his championship ring which did. JJ had since moved to the Bay area since to be close to his son.
