Allows isolation when either Deron, Johnson, or Lopez/Blatche gets hot, and allows his 100 million dollar pg to call whatever or do whatever he choose the other half of the game.


The problem is that Avery cannot coach that style. He has a very Jeff Van Gundy style of approach to the game. Avery can coach the hell out of defense, with good pick and roll defense, out-of-bounds defense, and everything in between. However his offense is just dump it into to Brook or let Joe/Deron iso until a team figures out a way to prevent either. After that it's just ugly. It's a very one-dimensional offense because it doesn't really utilize cuts or slip screens or pick and rolls. Most players are just relying on their individual talents rather than a team talent.

I do not like the move because it signals to potential hires that they're on a short leash. The top tier coaches will flee if they think there is no safety with the job. However, I wanted him fired for awhile too but was willing to wait for the rest of the season to play out (e.g. getting swept in the first round).

This is a move that the Lakers can do and get away with. We're the Nets, we're not allowed to fire and hire coaches at will. Oh well. If we do get a new coach I'd like to see Nate McMillan or have Byron Scott come back.

Of course not, but this one is one of my favorite threads. I bumped it quite many times when Avery I-DONT-KNOW-HOW-TO-COACH Johnson was our head coach.
