Our boy, Avery, gets sent home

"We'll just see how everybody responds," Dallas coach Avery Johnson, Louisiana native and Southern University alum, said Wednesday at Oracle Arena, after his Dallas Mavericks squeaked out a gut-wrenching win in the 2nd round of the NBA playoffs. Ole Avery is a homeboy (Lutcher, La.). We're all proud of him and we thought this was going to be the year. Alas, Johnson and his Dallas Mavericks got eliminated Thursday night by the Golden State Warriors in a thrilling series. Johnson faced his mentor and the friend, Don Nelson, who groomed the ex-point guard to succeed him as the Mavericks coach after an eight-year run in Dallas. But in the end alot of people say too much pressure was on Dallas' star, Dirk Nowitski, who failed to deliver.
