Avery Johnson was fired by the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday after being named Eastern Conference Coach of the Month for November and starting the season with an 11-4 record. The Nets have named P.J. Carlesimo as interim head coach.Nets ownership became disappointed in the team’s play in December. The Nets have gone 3-10, which landed the team in eighth place in the Eastern Conference.“I just got a sense, as I told Avery this morning, that he just wasn’t reaching them anymore,” general manager Billy King said at a news conference Thursday. King made it clear that ownership made the final decision to let Johnson go.Johnson was in the last year of a three-year, $12 million contract.“You never think when you’re a .500 team and then you’re going into two more home games at home that something like this would happen,” Johnson said at the news conference. “But this is ownership’s decision, and this is what we sign up for. This is part of our business. Fair or unfair, it doesn’t matter. But again, it’s time for a new voice, and hopefully they’ll get back on track.”Friday, the Nets host the struggling Charlotte Bobcats, who are on a 16-game losing streak. Their last win was on Nov. 24 against the Washington Wizards.The Nets will start their coaching search after the first of the year, but according to ESPN.com the Nets will make a phone call to Phil Jackson to measure his interest in the opening. But Jackson’s agent told NBA.com that he is not interested in coaching the Nets.Stan Van Gundy, Nate McMillan, Mike Brown and Jeff Van Gundy are a few of the top available coaches to fill the vacancy. Stan Van Gundy, according to reports, has “no interest” in the job.Carlesimo, one-time head coach of Golden State and Portland with a 204-296 career record, has been instructed by King to coach the Nets like he is going to be coaching them for the next decade.Carlesimo’s focus could be to change the offense to better suit point guard Deron Williams, who criticized Johnson’s isolation offensive system more than a week ago. Williams, the all-star guard who chose the Nets over the Dallas Mavericks when he signed as a free agent last summer, said that he was uncomfortable in Johnson’s offense.But King and Johnson denied the idea that Williams’ discontent had any role in the decision. King said that the players were not consulted in the move.“To pinpoint this all on Deron is not fair. He was not the deciding factor in this decision,” King said. “It was something in talking with ownership we didn’t like the direction we were going.”Johnson told reporters that he thought his relationship with Williams was really good.“I thought from Day 1 (Deron and I) had a really good relationship,” Johnson said. “I don’t think it’s fair for anybody to hang this on Deron. He’s one player.”Williams said that he knew the blame would pointed to him for Johnson’s departure, after being blamed for the resignation of former Utah head coach Jerry Sloan a few years ago when Williams played for the Jazz.“First of all, I have not had one conversation with (King) about not being happy with Avery, wanting him gone, etc.,” Williams said. “It’s not my fault. But as soon as I heard the new, . . .I knew folks would blame me, would assume that it’s history repeating itself because of what was said about coach Sloan and me after he resigned. The last thing I would want to do is get coach Johnson fired. Any coach, for that matter.”Williams went on to add that Johnson was the reason that he came to the Nets and signed his extension during the offseason.“The Nets’ ownership would like to express thanks to Avery for his efforts and to wish him every success in the future,” principal owner Mikhail Prokhorov said in a statement. read more

Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. It’s a common technique for a business to solicit feedback from its audience, either on social media or via web polls and surveys. But, problem: Any time you ask the internet for information, you have to look carefully at what you get back in return. The reason is that the internet is no stranger to corrupting simple polls.Related: Why IoT Botnets Might be the Next Big Worry ?What kind of impact could a campaign have on your poll? You could find an internet meme taking over. You could see a representative sent to a far-off location. You could see a strange choice of venue for an event. Or you could see something more malicious, like what Mountain Dew encountered years ago. (Its attempt to let viewers choose the name for a new green-apple infused soft drink drew such offensive responses that the campaign had to be shut down).That’s just a publicized example of a high-profile poll gone wrong. More insidious are the cases that are never reported. You run a poll to gain demographic information or user feedback, and a clever fraudster manipulates the results to fit his (or her) needs without anyone’s ever knowing. You might think you’ve gained new insight, only to find further efforts to capitalize on that information falling flat.Contests often fall victim to the same manipulation. If your internet poll helps determine a winner, you have to be vigilant to make sure the winner isn’t chosen by a hired botnet rather than your legitimate followers. So, how can you protect your poll and your business from poll manipulation? The answer is to find a poll service or app that provides security against manipulation.Use a captcha.Captchas — programs or systems that distinguish human input from machine input — are some of the most basic internet security available today, so they should be a baseline bare minimum for any poll you do. The best choice is Google’s reCAPTCHA, which uses a variety of signals, ranging from user behavior on pages prior to the poll to mouse movements on the poll page itself. Powered by Google’s immense wealth of data, these captchas are good at separating a human response from machine one.Of course, captchas are in an arms race, and there are tools out there that help scammers bypass even Google’s most advanced reCAPTCHA algorithm. People are even developing machine-learning bots that can learn how to get past such algorithms. That’s why this solution is just one of many for a secure poll.Some polling services like Crowdsignal integrate some features of advanced reCAPTCHAs, like tracking mouse movements on the submit button. A bot usually simply jumps to position rather than mouses over, which is easier to detect. Even a bot that records mouse motion will be detected when the exact same motions are used over and over.Related: How Bots Steal Your Online Advertising BudgetUse a unique identifier.Other different ways exist to help you enforce some level of unique identifier for each entry in a poll. The easiest and most common today, which you see in contest apps like Gleam, is a social media authentication. This requires a user to sign into a valid social account to get an entry or a vote, and puts another barrier to entry in front of your poll.Again, this isn’t a perfect solution on its own. We all know of the issues with bots on Twitter and other social networks. A simple authentication alone will stop some people, but when your opposition controls 10,000 accounts, it’s no a barrier to all of them.Remember, an email address is not a valid unique identifier. It’s incredibly easy to generate unique email addresses, temporary or permanent. Gmail even allows you to add a . or a + to your address and customize it; each variation is likely to count as a unique address if you’re not filtering properly.This is where you add some IP filtering to the mix. A poll app that can monitor and filter entries based on IP can help prevent numerous accounts from entering from the same IP address. Sure, you might catch cases where three members of a family using the same computer want to enter, but you can specify just “one entry per household, please” to make it a non-issue. Using an IP tracing service like MaxMind or IP2Location can also help pinpoint entries that come from obvious proxy servers or data center IPs which are often used to hide this kind of poll manipulation. Normal users are unlikely to be voting from within a data center, right?Give a false positive.It’s important that you don’t give your opposition a reason to look deeper. If the person controlling a botnet encounters a message about his or her vote not counting, or is unable to access the poll with different accounts, this person might dig deeper and find a way to break your security after all. On the other hand, if it looks like the bot’s vote is accepted while your system quietly rejects it, the bot’s controller will be satisfied and leave things at that.Related: Why the Rise of Bots is a Concern for Social NetworksThis can be tricky in cases where the number of votes or the ranking of various options is publicly updated. If a user intends to add 200 votes to the second-place candidate, but doesn’t see the vote count rise, he or she will look a little deeper. You don’t want that to happen: Let this person think he or she has “won” — right up until you announce the real results. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
