Avery was like this as a player. He was the real leader of a Spurs team that had David Robinson. He was the one who took charge of the player huddles, and verbally got into teammates.

Over/under on how many days it will take for Avery to be hired by ESPN. My guess is less than a week.

That's pretty crazy that he got fired after b2b coach of the month awards. I'm not sure who they should go after. I always liked Nate McMillan but who knows.

He takes his job seriously...gets his message across, and is very approachable. He's a players coach, most players love him. Deron got him fired, as a scapegoat.

Avery is like the most proven commodity on that team. Their season tanked when their actual best player Brook Lopez got hurt (which is sad, because he may not even be an allstar), and they've struggled to find that rhythm again. This is a talented team, but not championship caliber. Avery said that before the season, and the next coach will find the same thing.

Blatche seems pretty disappointed on Twitter.

Retweeted this..

I knew when the Nets began to struggle(lost 10 of last 13) & D-Will spoke out against the offense that Avery would be fired. #WEAK #NBA

Seems Deron isn't a popular figure in the dressing room, perhaps?

Avery's son taking a shot at Deron and rightfully so.

"I'm sorry are best players couldn't make open shots. Yeah that's my dads fault totally".

This is the reason we lost 4-6 games. Simply Deron playing like a D-League pg. I feel bad for Avery, he's not a terrible coach but he is the scapegoat in this 14-14 season.

Avery's son needs to chill. Not helping his dad taking shots at NBA players. I agree Avery was the scapegoat, but going in like that isn't going to make matters any better. Let the fans and media talking heads go in. That's their job.

wow... someone on ISH who talks the talk and walks the walk. pardon me while i...



note: no sarcasm intended.


anyway, seems like there's a certain percentage of coaches who like to operate like that. tends to work in college and rarely in the pros. NBA players have too much entitlement, fame, ego and money to enjoy that for more than brief stretches. and seems like it's kind of forgotten by fans that many players in dallas got pretty sick of avery by the end and were quietly thrilled when he got axed.

not that i have much sympathy for NBA players and spoiled brats alike.
