    How does somebody win coach of the month and then gets fired afterwards?

    Phil Jackson, maybe Stan Van Gundy when it's all said and done.

    All NBA teams have scouting departments, they get a few reports of how to attack/defend Brooklyn and boom, game over for the nets. Look what happened to the 2007 Mavs, when Avery won 67 games and got a spanking too by GSW. Nelson basically quadrupled Dirk that series and Avery could make suitable adjustments. Dirk back then is better than anything the Nets have. You isolate B type players constantly, they will get shut down eventually.

    Avery Johnson has always been a mediocre coach. He was two wins away from winning a title and couldn't coach his team to close out that series.He had a championship roster in Dallas and got knocked out of the first round twice. I don't think he would have gotten fired this early in the season had the Nets not started out 11-4. The expectations on him dramatically increased after that hot start. Had the Nets been around .500 the entire season it would have been a different story.

    I think we all saw this coming...just not now. I thought he'd make it through until they eventually get swept in the first round

    I remember seeing an episode of the association when the coach had to tell some players after yje training camp ended that they weren't chosen for the season's roster. It would be funny to see the next episode when he appears on the other side as those players lol.

    LOL, saw that episode too, thought Avery is a pretty cool guy and deserves at least to finish his contract. His team is what it is, i don't see how Phil Jackson can take it where media predicted in the start of the season.
