    Wow, Torrey Ellis strikes again. And this time Torrey was 'injured' for just one game to make it happen.

    Avery Johnson was coach of the month in November, but that was 27 days ago. Long time.

    With Avery Johnson getting ax, Deron Williams has claimed 2 more NBA coaches than NBA titles.

    Nets fire Avery Johnson. Coach-killer Deron Williams gettin' work done.

    Five years from now Deron Williams will say he enjoyed playing in Avery Johnson's system

    Reggie Miller @ReggieMillerTNT about 5 minutes ago
    So will coaching change for Nets improve Deron Williams shooting percentage??
    PJ Carlisimo will be the interim coach---that could end really well! Atleast the Nets understand the whole interim idea.

    Already calls for Jerry or Nate McMillian to be the next head coach.

    Jerry vindicated?

    I would like that too.
    Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.

    Who do they hire? Stan Van yells, so he's out. Nate McMill is basically Avery. Phil wouldn't touch that team with a ten foot pole. Any ideas? They need a yes man to keep Willy happy. I know, let's give them Corbin!

    I really doubt this is Deron's fault, but it looks bad for sure. Wonder if he'll get traded now. Of course if this IS due to Deron's attitude, BK just chose player over coach.
    You know squat. You know less than squat. You and Squat could go to the movies and Squat could wear an "I'm with Stupid" t-shirt!

    Another good stinger....

    'Deron is just keeping up with Dwight, now they both have two notches'

    ...and zero titles.

    Whether Deron did this or not doesn't matter. He is now labeled, and guilty until he proves himself innocent.

    From Avery Johnson, Jr:

    "I'm sorry are best players couldn't make open shots. Yeah that's my dads fault totally..."
    Education is a bitch, yo!

    No doubt in my mind it had to do with Deron. He will of course play the, "Feel sorry for me" card when it comes to being interviewed. The Deron Williams trade just keeps getting better and better for Utah.

    Any reason why Utah shouldn't be calling Avery right now?
