It was the right move but the Nets better not fool themselves into thinking this is a very good team with poor coaching. The Deron/JJ dynamic sucks, and the team still relies a lot on role players like Evans, etc. that you can't expect to perform that well all year. They'll get a short term boost but quickly fall back to the same problems unless they bring in a coach everyone respects, and then build the roster as that coach sees fit.
90% truth.

i think avery's voice is the abrasive element, not himself as a person. other than his godawful annoying voice, he seems like a pretty decent fellow. humble and positive-minded.
