After the Brooklyn Nets fired Avery Johnson, everyone from Avery's son to LeBron James weighed in on the big news. But when the conversation switched to who would be next to take on Brooklyn's current head vacancy, things got interesting. With names like Stan Van Gundy and the more noteworthy one being Phil Jackson popping up, people were weighing in on the rumors. In a surprising yet fitting move, the Twitter account of the Utah Jazz responded to chatter with the following tweet:
Utah Jazz taking a shot at Deron Williams? twitter.com/NetsTakeOver/s…
— Nets Take Over (@NetsTakeOver) December 28, 2012
Ouch. Of course, this tongue-in-cheek message was a point blank shot at Deron Williams, who developed quite a rift with Utah since his departure in early 2011. Even though the tweet has since been deleted, we bet the Jazz have been holding that animosity in for a while now. And you know what they say, Deron, "he who laughs last, laughs best."
