Brice Johnson has been one of the biggest pieces for the North Carolina Tar Heels over the last few years, but he has taken his talents to the NBA and was the 25th overall selection by the Los Angeles Clippers. It seems like ex-teammate Joel Berry is going to miss having him on the court going into the 2016-17 season.
Berry took to Instagram and gave a cool tribute to Johnson, featuring a photo of them in the locker room after winning the 2016 ACC Tournament, in which Berry was the Most Outstanding Player.
I am sure Joel Berry isn’t the only person that will miss having Johnson on the court next year. He played a huge part in getting the team to the national championship game by averaging 17.0 points, 10.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks during the season.
They will have to replace a player that was so key in their success the last four years. It is certainly going to be interesting to see what happens with the Tar Heels this year.
