Phoenix Suns’ forward Cam Johnson is halfway through his master’s and thesis and plans to complete the same in the upcoming offseason
The Phoenix Suns took the Milwaukee Bucks down 118-105 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. While many would argue that it was just a Game 1, it was way more than that. It was a statement of declaration by Chris Paul and co. that they are there, and they aren’t kidding around.
While the stars of the show were Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton, one cannot forget the roles the bench players have been playing for the Suns. This post-season, the Suns have dealt with multiple injuries, including the one CP3 suffered against the Lakers. However, they have always managed to stay afloat due to their strong bench and role players. One of those players is Cam Johnson.
“Cam Johnson is playing the Finals and doing his Masters?!”
Cam Johnson has been an incredible find for the Suns. Coming off the bench, he has been averaging 8.2 points and 3.1 rebounds per game, while shooting 45.5% from the deep and 66% from the field. Apart from being sensational on the floor, Johnson has been busy with other things as well.
Cam Johnson completed his communications degree with honors in three years. He has since been pursuing his master’s in sports administration from UNC. In a recent interview, Johnson shared that he plans to complete his degree in the upcoming offseason.
Cam Johnson said his Masters and his thesis are currently on hold, but he’s about halfway through it and he’s going to finish it this offseason. His mom and his grandma are still on his case about it
