I'm normally not fond of these extensions before results, but in this case I'm fine with it as it does a couple things:
1) Shows a commitment to Avery Johnson and his vision
2) Shows the fans the athletic department is committed to being competitive
I know this goes on a lot... heck it happened with our last coach, but I think even Stevie Wonder can see why in this case an extension is a good idea. We have potentially a top 25 team on our hands in year 3 and it only looks like even better things for hoops is on the horizon.
I'm going to go ahead and reserve a hotel for the Final Four.. or crash on MS's couch and make the 60 minute drive back and forth!
