Avery Johnson Not Concerned About Losing Job

Avery Johnson addressed claims that with the Nets recent struggles he is on the hot seat and skating on thin ice as head coach:

“Listen to this: at some point, after I signed on as a coach, when I signed on the dotted line, a couple of things are going to happen at some point: 1, I’m going to get fired, 2. I’m going to resign. 3. I’m going to get re-assigned. One of those three things happens to every head coach in this league. As soon as you sign your name on that dotted line. And a lot of times, one of those three we know what’s going to happen because we’re in control. Two of those three we have no control over. So what we do is we continue to do our jobs. I think the best thing about jobs is when we have adversity, we have setbacks, as a coach we continue to lead with passion. …At the end of the day for every coach, one of those three things are going to happen. So right now, what I’m really concerned about is us playing good basketball. So until ownership tells me otherwise I’m going to continue to do my job.”
