Earlier this afternoon, the Brooklyn Nets shocked the basketball world by firing their head coach Avery Johnson after the team's 14-14 start. And, a lot of Nets players and NBA analysts aren't happy with the team's decision to part ways with Johnson after just 28 games. But, no one is more upset with the decision right now than Johnson's son Avery Johnson Jr. He took to his Twitter account shortly after the news broke and had some choice words for the Nets and the Nets "best players."
This is a fuxking Outrage. My dad is a great coach, he just got coach of the month and they Fire him. #Smh. Completely new team he had.— Avery Johnson Jr. (@itsaveryjohnson) December 27, 2012
The expectations were way to high for this team. We didn't even have a losing record.... Didn't even give my dad a full season. #OUTRAGE— Avery Johnson Jr. (@itsaveryjohnson) December 27, 2012
I'm sorry are best players couldn't make open shots. Yeah that's my dads fault totally...— Avery Johnson Jr. (@itsaveryjohnson) December 27, 2012
The kid's got a point. We're all for doing whatever it takes in order to make your team better, even if that means firing the head coach at the start of the season. But, does Johnson really deserve all the blame for the Nets struggles so far this season? Guess we'll all find out when we take a look at the Nets record at the end of the year to see how they make out playing for P.J. Carlesimo.
