Avery Johnson Was NBA Coach of the Month in October and November, Fired in December

The NBA is a fickle place. The old saying is you can't fire players, so the coaches get fired. If you have a team that should win and you don't, then you probably won't last long, right Mike Brown? Avery Johnson woke up today as the coach of the Brooklyn Nets, who are currently 14-14, but by lunchtime or so, Johnson was unemployed.

Normally you wouldn't expect the coach of a .500 team who is in third in their division to get canned, but the Nets were 11-4 through their first 15 games, meaning they're 3-10 in their last 13 games. So despite being named Coach of the Month for October/November, Johnson is out of work. Tough business.
