Avery Johnson has provided the object lesson in just how porous the Nets defense has become.

Thursday afternoon he jumped into the Nets practice scrimmage, promptly drove the lane and scored over Johan Petro, according to a tweet from Al Iannazzone of the Bergin Record.

That would be 45-year-old, 5’11” (at best), out of the league seven years Avery Johnson having no problem shredding the Nets defense.

What more need be said.
