Earlier today, Avery Johnson was fired as Nets head coach. He was fired for two reasons as far as I’m concerned: 1) The team so far hasn’t lived up to the unrealistic expectations (which isn’t Johnson’s fault since the expectations were…unrealistic), and 2) a few weeks ago, Deron Williams subtly voiced his displeasure with Johnson’s coaching style – and they still owe Deron $100 million.
Johnson’s firing sparked much reaction on Twitter. One in particular was that of Warren Sapp. He seems to remember the rumors and speculation a few years ago that Deron Williams was the reason Jerry Sloan left Utah. So, Sapp decided to do what he does best: talk.
Sapp talks way too much sometimes, and his mouth routinely gets him in trouble. You’d think he’d learn by now.
Looks like ‘Coach Killer’ Derron Williams has struck yet again.. 1st Jerry Sloan now Avery Johnson…
