Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Evan Smith, the camera-shy editor of Texas Monthly, interviewed Dallas Mavericks head coach Avery Johnson for the mag's forthcoming April issue. Evan kindly provides a sneak peak over at the Monthly's Delay of Game sports blog, with a few choice quotes concerning Johnson's boss, among them this Q and A:

Is he anything at all like the cartoon character the media make him out to be?

You know, he’s just a young guy who has a ton of energy and really loves the Mavericks, loves the game, loves the fan involvement. He’s a great innovator. He provides everything we need to be successful.

We'll find out starting tonight. --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
