Avery Johnson Says What After Getting Fired
Billy King also said he has no plans to talk to other coaches at this time.
It isn’t often that a fired coach speaks at a press conference and Avery Johnson had some pretty interesting things to say.
“This is ownership’s decision. Fair or unfair, it doesn’t matter. It’s time for a new voice…”
“Maybe ownership thought since he went 11-4 in the first month that we would go 11-4 every month…”
“Maybe the players weren’t happy with the direction we were going… Maybe they decided collectively they wanted a change”
Avery’s system, rotations and decision making were very questionable but honestly I think the firing was a bit hasty. The expectations for this team were way higher than they should have been and a new coach won’t improve much.
Do you think that was a good move to fire the coach???
