Mark suck!

I can see if Avery Johnson never led his team to a playoff and finished their season as one of the lowest teams...but to fire him because the team didn't make it to the championship? how do you think that makes the players feel? they should be and you should be proud you had a coach to lead them into the playoffs, if he could lead them into the playoffs, how bad of a coach can he be, sometimes it's not the coaches fault, once they get into the playoffs it's mainly up to the team to perform. and to aquire a player in the middle of the season who hasn't gotten to learn the ropes of his new team during a playoff? ridiculous is that? you're supposed to do that during training before the big games start. rookie or not. you had a gold mine in Avery Johnson, i always hated basketball until Avery Johnson became coach, i loved the way he handled the team, that man new what he was doing.
