Brooklyn Nets Fire Coach Avery Johnson

After losing 10 of their last 13 to drop to 14-14 on the year, Mikhail Prokhorov has fired Avery Johnson as coach of the Brooklyn Nets.  It seems comments from Deron Williams a little over a week ago about Avery Johnson's offense not being as effective as the one he ran for Jerry Sloan in Utah were taken to heart by the obviously heavy handed Russian billionaire.

EDIT: In an absolutely shocking announcement, Prokhorov has announced that minority "owner", Jay-Z, will take over as Head Coach effective immediately.
