Avery Johnson on His Way Out?
Here is how one NBA executive described Avery Johnson’s job security this morning: “The watch is on.”
As in death watch.
“A flammable situation,” was how one Nets player, speaking on condition of anonymity, described it to SheridanHoops.com. “Jerry Sloan all over again.”
If you survey the landscape in Brooklyn today, you can’t help but come to one conclusion: Avery Johnson is likely headed down the same path the Dodgers went down in 1957.
In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if he is out of a job before tipoff Friday night, with his replacement having a winnable game against the Bobcats to get the team back over .500 after its demoralizing loss in Milwaukee last night. Even better, the Cavs come into Brooklyn the next night. Like the ‘Cats, they’ve got just 7 wins.
