    Avery Johnson Fired

    HE GONE
    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nba/stor...starting-14-14
    The Brooklyn Nets have relieved Avery Johnson of his coaching duties, general manager Billy King announced Thursday.

    Johnson, who was in the final year of his contract, was named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for October and November following an 11-4 start. But the Nets have won just three of their last 13 games in December, prompting the team to go in another direction.

    I was thinking last week that this might happen after Deron Williams said something about the offense.

    I said before the season started when everyone was hyping this team up that they wouldn't be all that great. Another middle seed in the East.

    "I want ONLY 9 eyebrows in the starting lineup for the Hornets next year." I typed this before the draft lottery

    Coach of the Month November, fired in December.

    Somebody didn't like him very much.

    We was coach of the month in October and November, only reason he is gone is because DWill complained about the offense.

    Pretty sad huh? Dude couldn't wait to get rid of Sloan and his system, and ever since he has he's been a very overrated player. Maybe Sloan made him look better than he actually is?

    Avery Johnson Fired

    Watch the Nets suddenly play amazing. One off the biggest reasons I hate super teams is the power they hold.

    Monty Williams is 6-22, Avery Johnson was 14-14. Seems to me the wrong coach was fired. Bring Avery back to New Orleans!!!!

    I'm sure if Monty had that lineup then the nets wouldn't be 14-14

    I think Benson knows this is a rebuilding team. Monty came into a not so fortunate situation from the very beginning and now he and the FO are trying to build it up.

    Billy Kings interview with the press, he literally said "uhm" at least thirty times in his opening statement.
