Avery Johnson Jr. Is Not So Thrilled With Avery Johnson’s Firing

Avery Johnson’s son, Avery Johnson Jr., is apparently on Twitter. He has also heard the news that his father was fired by the Brooklyn Nets today.

As expected, he is less than pleased, tweeting and retweeting Johnson-boosting facts and comforting sympathy.

Andray Blatche, who was retweeted by Johnson Jr., also expressed his dismay on Twitter.

After a rocky start to his career in Washington, Johnson gave Blatche a second chance. And he has excelled, especially when Brook Lopez was hurt and he was thrusted into the starting lineup. But it’s onward and upward for the Nets, stuck with a financially inflexible roster and moving the only potentially moving parts.
