Larry Demetric Johnson (born March 14, 1969 in Tyler, Texas) is a former American professional basketball player who spent his professional career with the Charlotte Hornets and New York Knicks in the NBA. He was listed as a 6 ft 7 in (2.01 m) forward.

Along with Alonzo Mourning and Muggsy Bogues, Johnson played with the Hornets at the height of their popularity in the early and mid-1990s. In his first two seasons in the NBA, Johnson entered as an explosive power forward, averaging 20+ points and 10+ rebounds.

He played for the US national team (aka Dream Team II) in the 1994 FIBA World Championship, winning the gold medal. Johnson was a key member of the Knicks' 1999 Eastern Conference championship team and was the player who was hit with a foul by Antonio Davis of the Indiana Pacers. Standing outside the three-point line with 11.9 seconds left, Johnson held the ball, and then began to dribble. He leaned into defender Davis before jumping up. The referee called the foul about a half-second before Johnson released the ball, but it was counted as a continuation shooting foul. The three-point basket and the ensuing free throw gave the Knicks a 92-91 victory. The play was described by Tom Hammond of The NBA on NBC: "Johnson... is fouled... and hit it!".
