Agreed. Johnson is a nice player who should have an excellent journeyman career in the NBA. Will he be a star though? Who knows, too early to tell.
As for the Warriors, they've had some ups and downs. Came back the next night and hammered the Clippers, who have been off to a good start.
With the changes in the NBA season this year (early start, more time between games, fewer days for training camp and conditioning) a lot of things have changed. It's still very early. The Warriors will be fine. Detroit, on the other hand, could find itself with a new coach mid-season if they don't consistently win games and continue to lose to teams they should beat.
Personally, I think Detroit beating the Warriors is an outlier and if the teams were to play 100 times, the Warriors would win 99 of those games.
