Daniel Johnson (3×3 basketball) made a huge an impact on his Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham where he led the men’s tournament in points-per game (8.0 average), shooting efficiency (0.69) and shooting value (32.9). In the final against Canada, he missed a shot to seal the win after Australia drew level 15-15 with 10 seconds remaining, sending the game into overtime with Australia eventually going down in a one-point thriller. As a tall child, Johnson found his way onto the basketball court on the advice of the local basketball club president whose children were tutored by Johnson’s father. Representing the Emus at the Novi Sad 2007 FIBA Under-19 World Championships, the 212cm Australian Institute of Sport graduate launched his collegiate career at Pepperdine University in Los Angeles. Having made his NBL debut with the Melbourne Tigers in 2008, Johnson has since become a stalwart of the Adelaide 36ers. A seven-time Al-NBL Team member, six-time club MVP and 350 plus NBL gamer, the former 36ers co-captain made his Boomers debut at the 2019 FIBA World Cup qualifiers. With overseas stints in Puerto Rico, New Zealand, Iran, Argentina and Japan to his name, he is signed to play with the 36ers until the end of season 2022-23. Alongside Birmingham 2022 teammates Jesse Wagstaff and Greg Hire, Johnson took home gold from the Singapore FIBA Asia 3×3 Cup team in July 2022. Off-court, Daniel and his partner Daniela welcomed the birth of their son Judd in 2021.
