DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks have fired coach Avery Johnson.
Wednesday's move was the first of what's likely to be many in
the offseason. The league's highest payroll produced a second
straight first-round knockout from the playoffs.
Johnson leaves with an impressive resume after three-plus
seasons, but Mavs owner Mark Cuban couldn't tolerate a bottom line
of being 3-12 in the playoffs since blowing a 2-0 lead in the 2006
