Having to start all over, learning a new system, new habits, new coach personality really is stupid when they wonder why they can't compete for a championship. Bad move on the Nets part for firing Avery, even worst for firing PJ!
this was technically not a bad firing because PJ was always the "interim" head coach. they only guaranteed his spot until the season. next season they can start over with a new face, especially if they hire someone before the draft.
i can sense some love for PJ on the board, but as a head coach he doesn't have a good track record. watch Game 7 over again and see if the players were listening to him or turning him out, the latter is what it was looking like.
