Atlanta Hawks guard Joe Johnson’s closet was profiled in the September 19th issue of ESPN the Magazine. The feature is called “What’s in Joe Johnson’s closet?” and the answer to that question is simple: a lot. Johnson had a custom-made 500-square-foot shoe closet constructed so he could display all his shoes.
“I just thought this would be a cool idea, and it would almost look like a museum,” Johnson told the Mag. “I had a fingerprint sensor put on the door to make sure I’m the only one who can get in here. I mostly wear Air Jordans. All of the Jordan guys are selected by Michael Jordan himself. It’s kind of hard to tell MJ no. I have 436 pairs of sneakers in here, and they’re mostly unworn. I’ll wear all of them eventually.”
Ladies and gentlemen, this is what we call “Baller Status.” Throw up 21 points per game in the NBA and you too may be able to have your own shoe museum that’s larger than most people’s apartments. Chad Ochocinco’s bedroom aquarium is jealous.
