But before dumping the blame solely on Williams, this team is battling chemistry issues similar to a team like the Los Angeles Lakers; they're in the midst of a rebuild, which means everyone has to adjust.
Also, team cohesion is not just a product of the players, but a product of a coach's ability to implement a sense of trust, as well as control. The onus has been on Avery Johnson, and like his franchise player, he too has shown a reluctance to adjust in the wake of serious problems affecting this team.
Lastly, after their luminous 11-4 start, the Nets plummeted, losing 10 of their last 13 games. Is the collapse a consequence of the now ousted coach? Or do the problems facing the Nets stem from something deeper?
