Raptors’ Amir Johnson Snaps Some Photos of His Teammates Between Plays (Video)

You know, a lot of people seem to have this idea that once you pick a career you have to stick with it for the rest of your life, but that’s just not true. You shouldn’t be afraid to make a career change. A lot of people do it every day, including Amir Johnson of the NBA’s Toronto Raptors. That guy makes $6.8 million a year playing basketball, but last night in Chicago, right in the middle of a game against the Bulls, Johnson decided to become a photographer.

How did he come to choose his new career? Well, he just kind of stumbled upon it. Literally.

You see, about midway through the second quarter, while NBA Slam Dunk Champ Terrence Ross was driving through the lane, a camera man behind the basket dropped his camera right by the baseline, and the Bulls’ Carlos Boozer accidentally kicked it out on to the floor. Then, when play stopped, the NBA’s most famous mouthguard-thrower decided to pick up the camera lying at his feet and snap a few candids of his teammates.

Take a look:

Fortunately for the Raptors, Johnson quickly decided that his new career probably was not for him, so he switched back to being a basketball player and the Raptors went on to win by a score of 101-98.
