Avery Johnson Winning %



It is lost on some that Avery has the highest winning percentage of any NBA coach ever.  Some argue that any coach could have done well with the Mavs.  A few comments on Avery's record:

1)  Many coaches have coached teams much better than the Mavs - Phil Jackson, Red Auerbach, Pat Riley, etc.  So don't try to tell us that Cuban has one of the greatest rosters ever.

2) Avery made Diop look like a good NBA player and Josh Howard look like an all-star.

3) Avery made the Mavs a top ten defensive team after years of being the worst defensive team in the league.

4) And finally, Avery got Devin to play great defensive and not chuck shots....that was probably his biggest achievement.

No one should sleep on Avery's coaching record.
