Saw that Avery Johnson attended the Spurs camp a few days ago......I stayed quiet on it for a few days to see if anyone on PtR would cover it, but since you all haven't, I gotta step in.
I took a lot of guff on here for suggesting that Avery Johnson will one day replace Pop. However, please note that Step One in the process is now complete. For the record, I'm OK with it - and I'm even trying to work my way into actually wanting this to happen.
Avery went away and cut his teetch with another team , had a measure of success and I'm sure he learned a lot about what not to do in Dallas. This will only serve us well down the road. Pop won't live forever and it has to be somebody right? Why not Avery Johnson as opposed to anyone else that it out there?
