Only nine days after complaining about Avery Johnson's coaching style, Deron Williams got his wish today as the Nets relieved Johnson of his coaching duties after a 14-14 start.

Despite what many experts believe has been an extreme underperformance of the highly touted and paid backcourt of Williams and Joe Johnson (including Williams' good friend Jason Kidd), GM Billy King made the call to let Johnson go. Johnson, who was in the final year of his contract, was named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for October and November following an 11-4 start. But the Nets have won just three of their last 13 games in December, falling to .500. PJ Carlesimo (he of the infamous Latrell Sprewell choking) will take over as interim coach.

Back on December 18, Deron Williams blamed his lack of production on coach Johnson's isolation-heavy offense, saying he produced better in a system, much like the one run in Utah under coach Jerry Sloan. Ironically, Williams squeezed out the future Hall of Fame and longest tenured coach Sloan before being traded from Utah.

For those keeping tabs, that's two coaches in two teams for Williams.
