Bummer for the rest of the West:
Magic Johnson has stepped down from President of Basketball Ops of the Lakers.
Maybe double bummer, Johnson loves Kidd.
Triple bummer, he's now available for broadcasts during the playoffs. Quadruple, so is Avery Johnson.
You don't like Avery's accent.
A guy who went from terrible to very good on broadcasts is Webber. Used to cringe listening to him. Now very good. Also, really like Reggie Miller.
Insipid and evil all in the same package.....he ruined a young woman's career in New Jersey because she wouldn't sleep with him, and, in fact, was repulsed by him. When her (lack of) feelings came to light as she entered a relationship with someone else, he had her and her new man drummed out of the organization, all the while keeping on with his fake folksiness......
Bob, are you talking about Avery Johnson, or Jason Kidd?
Avery. I don't think any of this was public, but I heard about it because a friend of mine was working there at the time. Avery is a massive hypocrite, not the "Aw shucks" role he plays on TV.
