Joe Johnson Sings Karaoke, Puts Atlanta Hawks On TMZ

Apparently, the NBA lockout is allowing Atlanta Hawks star Joe Johnson to let his hair down and have a bit of fun.

The gossip website TMZ caught the Hawks' $119 million man out and about in his hometown of Little Rock, Ark., having a bit of fun in a local bar. Atlanta's perennial All-Star and the team's highest-paid player was at Willy D's Rock 'n Roll bar in the Arkansas capital on Sunday night (or early Monday morning) when karaoke broke out in the place.

In a testament to even the richest of the rich super-elite athletes can break it down and have a bit of fun, Johnson took to the stage and sung Jodeci's "Come and Talk to Me" in front of the crowded bar.

TMZ says that he didn't do that bad of a job, but you'll get a chance to judge for yourself. A video of his performance, which will be utter gold in the Hawks locker room, IF this lockout thing ever ends, is here.
