Now We Will Find Out If Avery Johnson Can Really Coach!

Avery Johnson will be named the new head coach of the New Jersey Nets as early as tomorrow, eventually signing what is believed to be a 3 year contract. Johnson has the best winning percentage of any coach in N.B.A. history, but that was with the Dallas Mavericks and with Johnson blowing a championship opportunity at the hands of Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat. Johnson hasn't even won a championship, so I hope that the Nets aren't expecting a savior.

Avery Johnson will probably survive long enough for the Nets to become respectable and then head back to the analyst booth at ESPN. No one in their right mind will turn away millions of dollars to babysit millionaire athletes on a mediocre basketball team.
