Quote of the Day: Avery Johnson disagrees with LeBron on what’s good for the league


“I disagree. Maybe the league would be better if we didn’t have three stars on one team.”

—New Jersey Nets coach Avery Johnson, after being told LeBron James suggested New Jersey was a team that could be contracted (via the New York Daily News). James suggested that the 1980s were an NBA golden age of deep, talented teams — he is wrong about that, by the way — and the league would be better if there were fewer teams and better players on those teams. Avery Johnson isn’t on board with that.
