To Win 3 of Their Last 13 Games After Starting 11-4 Will Get You Fired Or On the Hot Seat...

IDK Y Everyone Is Just Blaming Point Overrated...Avery Has Much Fault To..

His Team Wasnt Shooting Well ..Okay...

But Also Their D Has Been Atrocious At Time's During This Stretch...

Thats All On Him Avery Is a Defensively Mind Coach ....

Ohh And Lets Not Act Like Avery Never Had a Problem w/ His Star PG ...

Devin Harris (twice) Jason Kidd ...Now Possibly Dwill...

Maybe He Got Into w/ Dwill Couple Times ...And Billy Said Enough

Anyways PJ Is a Good Interim HC...He'll Figure Out Something Rather Than Tank The Yr

he was a decent guy... but damn he didn't have enough time to get all his guys to fit.... take it from us... we had larry brown and spent loads of money but the players have to be compatible or no coaching will change that
he's had years to do something - anything. he lead them to the worst record in the league. sure, their roster was a joke but still...he had the same problems in dallas. are we all of a sudden forgetting how he had a 1st seeded dallas team LOSE to the 8th seed warriors? are people forgetting how he was coached circles around in that series? don nelson forced dirk into uncomfortable positions on the floor and avery made ZERO adjustments. and then the next year, he gets booted out of the first round AGAIN.

he had devin harris and micromanaged him and ran an iso heavy offense which is easy to coach against. harris looked awful under him..so they traded him for old a.ss kidd. and avery tried turning jkidd into an iso player as well and the offense was awful too..

in jersey, he's making deron williams into an iso player and everybody is standing around. deron is being forced into running pick n rolls with lopez and evans that's neither of their games. avery sh*ts the bed at making any adjustments. they're better off looking for a coach that's a lot more creative on offense because they have a lot of versatile players out there. whether you like the nets or not, you have to admit that brook lopez, deron williams, joe johnson and even gerald wallace are match up nightmares for opposing players.

Look at how Devin Harris prospered after he left Dallas. He had his best season and was voted onto the All-Star team. Avery Johnson is a control freak and limits the playing abilities of his players.

good analysis

not sure if i would call brook lopez a matchup nightmare tho.

i think avery has 1 more gig in his career, and if it doesnt work out, we will see him on NBATV as an analyst.

This was not going to work this year, no Howard no expectations.......

Avery was on his final year so it was time to let him go
this team was not set up for him to succeed, Avery has a history of feuding with PGs that also ruined the whole situation of DWILL star of the team, he was expecting Howard to be his star.

That early run they had was them playing based off buzz alone
once other teams got their legs under the Nets were back to reality.


They will make it to the Playoffs though, this team is built to make it there but not
to compete with HEAT/OKC/LAKERS/CELTICS you know sure to be champs of the NBA post season world.

This.
Why shouldn't the coach get chopped off?, last time I checked the players all must
do what he prepares, if his whole plan isn't working he needs to go, even if it was Phil Jackson
he would get fired or better yet he would quit, if your players ain't grooving in your system
it is your fault not the players, they are just the chess pieces these coaches move around.

You can draw up all the best plays in the world but that doesn't guarantee the players'll hit their shots. No one's going to win with humphries as a star player. Nets FO acted irrationally and too quickly on this. They didn't have a coach issue, they had a player psychology issue, them firing the coach just made that worse because they've validated their egos and their play.
