What a head coaching ride for Avery Johnson thus far in his career. A Coach of the Year award, a trip to the Finals, and turning in a 67 win season in just a little over two years. Dirk Nowitzki, has been a regular on the All NBA Teams the past several years, not to mention among the favorites for League MVP a few times. However, IMO this loss to the 8th seeded Warriors is a blow to both of them. Yes, the Warriors are indeed better than their record indicates and the midseason trade made them a playoff team, but dominating the Mav`s like they did is unacceptable if you are a fan, and Mark Cuban! There is no way to erase the things of last year (going up 2-0 then losing the next 4 games in the Finals to the Heat) or make the dissapointment of this year go away (losing to the Warriors) unless, the Mav`s win it all. What does Avery and Cuban do now? Do they go after a free agent? Go after a blockbuster trade? For Dirk and Avery`s sake, I hope they make the right decision.
