Look what he has done with the Mavs. The Mavs should be absolutely destroying anything or anyone in their past, it doesn't matter if they were in the west or the east. He's taken a high-powered exciting offense and turned it into a slow, uptight isolation offense. If Dirk isn't open in the low post, might as well let the shot clock run down. Josh Howard is now afraid to take any shot, Jason Kidd is hindered by no fast break, no transitional offense, Jason Terry might as well just stay along the baseline 3 point line and shoot desperation shots.

Yes the Mavs reached the finals under him and won 67 games, but look what he inherited. Don Nelson and Donnie Nelson built this team. They won so many games because of offensive fluidness, and ability to drive and score. Avery installed a good D, and they were unbeatable (until they met Don Nelson again). Now everything they do is about, one on one, give it to Dirk and pray. I think Avery is a good coach, just not good for the Mavs.

Look at the Mavs problems this year. Scoring, and execution. Dirk's numbers are down, Kidd took till the last game of the year to get a triple-double. Josh Howard will never take a shot anymore. Jason Terry cant make ****, Jerry Stackhouse is non-existent (yes I know, injuries), Erica Dampier actually had an OK year.

The Mavericks, under any other offensively minded coach would be obliterating everyone.

Recently our D has been failing us. Well no ****. Thats what happens when you trade two of our best defenders. Diop and Harris would the meat and potatoes of our D. Diop was a block machine, Harris was the quickest (maybe 2nd behind parker), PG in the league, who finally developed a shot. So who do we have that can play D now? Well Dirk cant, Kidd is OK... against bigger PG's like B Diddy... not against Paul or Parker, Howard is OK, but makes bonehead fouls, Jason Terry... not, Erica Dampier LOL wut? The only other guy who can play D is Brandon Bass, who is the ONLY reason we have a presence under the basket, he is a beast.

Mavs SHOULD be a Dynasty, but they have been hindered. Mavs could have an offense like Golden State or Phoenix, and a D not unlike San Antonio's.

Oh well another disappointing year in Dallas, one and done. (Mavs, Cowboys... lol Rangers...)

mavs were never destined to be a dynasty...especially with DIRK as the star (lol) when is he going to man up and drive to the hoop and stop being a pussy and stop taking a bunch of fade aways.

Avery didnt pull the drunk retard move in letting nash get away, only to pay an entire countries gdp in order to get jason kidd complete with a walker.

you forgot to put (no racist) .. but no actually avery johnson is one of the best coaches in the nba. the western conference is too good right now. dallas should move to the east somewhere, maybe vermont or montreal. they would always end 1st or 2nd .

My question is, why would Avery play guys like Juan Howard or Eddie Jones, when they barley play all year long during a PLAYOFF game. That the end of the Mavs bench. Why did we sign Lue?

Avery's coaching approach just doesn't seem to flow.

because they have no bench... the jason kidd trade was a big mistake, they don't even use him the right way. His defensive presence is only on the opposing team's PG, and he's not that good of a defender anymore, he's too slow to keep up with star PG's like tony parker, or chris paul. I'd rather have Diop blocking and changing shots in the paint then Kidd only guarding one player.

people jump off bridges for one regular season game. This was a playoff game! Don't you remeber all those stupid lakers threads when they lost to bad teams.


This was a playoff game.

FIRE THE COACHES. TRADE THE SUPERSTARS, BENCH EVERY1, EVERY TRADE THEY EVER MADE WAS TERRIBLE, OMG SOMETHING MUST BE DONE!

80% of teams who lost the first game in a playoff series lose the series.

Thats a misleading stat if u think about it. They said it many times trying to hype the games up. But its not that significant.

Its a culmination of this season read my 1st post idiot. We got exposed very bad last night, which is a microcosm of this entire season. Look good on paper and play good for a while until it really comes crunch time.

I've seen about 10 mavs game this season, and in every game they were unable to perform at crunch time or at during the entire 4th quarter, this is exactly what happened yesterday, what don't you understand?

I think so too

theres no proof of that guy being a great coach, he inherited what was probaby the best team for a rookie coach to get, they didnt win 20 games or anything like that, he got a 50+ win team and went from there

No probs with him wearing the ring.
But his window is shut with this team....another sonics of the 90s....all the potential, but never delivered.

Yup. Shot their wad last season.

Once they lost to Golden State their confidence was shot and it has carried over.

wow....x2.

That is exactly how I feel. Only you said it better than I could. Im glad Avery's gone. I wonder who the mavs should hire though. Im hoping they bring in D'antoni.
