Even a decade later, the memories remain clear for Mahir Johnson.
He can remember watching his dad play pick-up games at the Chester Boys and Girls Club. He can remember the “workouts” — an unusual characterization for a 5-year-old’s basketball routine and a testament to the centrality of the game in his life. He can recite the advice verbatim.
He can remember and reference all of it, every lesson, every session imbibing the vaunted history of Chester hoops at the hip of his father, Mike Johnson.
Now, 13 years after his father’s death, Mahir is living the legacy in orange and black. And he’s hoping to pen the next chapter in Clippers history Friday night with in the District One Class AAAA final against Pennsbury at Villanova.
