Forget about Coach K; Devin Harris tells the NY Post that he wants Avery Johnson and his amazing voice calling the shots in Jersey next season: “Here’s one vote for Avery Johnson as the next coach of the Nets. ‘I love Avery. Love him,’ said Devin Harris, who played for Johnson in Dallas and hopes to do so again with the Nets. ‘Avery would be a good coach anywhere … He knows how to win, simple as that,’ Harris said. ‘He’s a great coach, a great motivator. Now whether we had problems there or not, we won games.’ Of the reports Harris and Johnson clashed in Dallas, the active point guard insists it was just a matter of a young player wanting to do more and the retired player/coach holding the reins. In hindsight, Johnson was right, Harris concedes. ‘That was the only thing we argued about,’ he said.”
