“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.
