How much better of a coach is Avery than Frank?

I'm all for the signing, I'm just thinking out loud.

In averys 3.5 years with the mavs he had a .735 winning percentage, highest of any coach in league history (Phil has .705). That doesn't mean too much to me though bc he was handed a top five team.

I don't know how well this will work out for us but I know free agents won't be enthusiastic to play for the little general.

i liked AJ a lot when he added instant defense to the mavs, turning them into legit contenders. because after years of peaking under nelson, that was certainly impressive to see.

but i liked him a lot less when he badly misused kidd after the big trade and it turned out that half of the mavs players couldn't stand him by that point, anyway. truth be told, i couldn't stand his speaking voice either after watching him do his sportscaster thing- he has one of the most obnoxious and irritating voices i've ever heard on a human being.

on the positive side, AJ will hopefully light a fire under harris' ass, getting the dude to play real defense for the first time in years. also, he is probably just an intermediate coach, whose main function will likely be to keep the team, particularly the young players, on their toes for the next couple of years. but when he and the team hit their ceiling shortly after that, i expect a much better coach to be installed, one who can take the nets all the way to the trophy. and frankly, the situation should be perfect to attract one, with the new arena finally ready and a promising roster on offer.

as for AJ versus frank,
frank is certainly a better pure basketball coach IMO, but AJ has some things that frank doesn't have, namely that he's black, is a former player, and is half-crazy. and in a league filled with half-crazy super-athletes from the inner cities, that's a very, very good starting point...

Wait CDR actually tweeted that??

Wow trade his ass we dont need guys like that on our team and he's not even that good.

Frank was a great coach just caught in a bad situation. I think Avery will do a great job with our team. He may be a drill sergeant but honestly thats what they need a tough coach who doesnt take any crap. He'll help get Harris back to all star status as well as Brook. Good hire IMO

Doesn't Devin Harris HATE Avery Johnson? Plus you guys are forgetting Avery runs a 24 second offense. Harris needs to run and gun. That's half the reason he didn't succeed in dallas.

that's what i thought for awhile after the trade, but since then, harris has been consistently positive about AJ. because, yes, harris may have been on a leash under AJ, but there is no question that harris grew under the dude as well, and is able to remember and appreciate that.

that makes no difference to me. we spent one whole season with harris as the focal point of the offense, and after teams adjusted, it went nowhere.

so what harris wants at this point is immaterial to me. because as a supposed NBA point guard, it's going to be his job to set up his teammates, beginning with lopez. the days of him doing whatever he wanted were already over last season...

From what i see Harris likes the signing. He is attending Avery's conference.
I think it is a good signing for Harris and Will. Avery is a former PG and should make Harris a way better player.

Oh okay good. Maybe they'll trade him for a better Avery guy anyways. I think part of the reason why he can't be the focal point is he's not a good jumpshooter. I don't think he's bad, or that it couldn't come in time. He's just not on par with where he should be IF you want to run an offense around him. I'm just glad they get along. Maybe Avery just had rookie hate for him.

i'm with you on that. i think harris' best NBA position is being an instant-offense combo guard off the bench... which is why i'm still hoping that the nets can snag turner somehow.

I think he totally could have a better jumpshot if he decides he wanted to improve on it. hell Avery might make him improve on it. Not satisfied with Courtney Lee and CDR I take it?

I remember reading on Netsdaily.com that Avery wants Devin to be the defensive guru he was before.
