Avery Johnson made the rounds of New York radio stations Tuesday and Wednesday. Although he spent a lot of time talking about the Nets, he spent more talking about the game in general. Overall, it's a feast for any hoops fan. Three interviews...one hour. Spend some time.
He talked about the playoffs, what makes a team and a franchise great, how you put together a coaching staff, how you match up rookies with good "holdovers" (and mentioned Terrence Williams as one of those holdovers) and the value of having a former player as head coach.
He also recounted Mikhail Prokhorov's first words to him: "Hello, Little General".
