Johnson, along side of David Robinson, helped carry the San Antonio Spurs to a National Championship NBA title in 1999. The Spurs held summer training camps in Kerrville from 1994-97 on the campus of Schreiner University. Johnson attended all five of those camps. Guy Overby, Tivy Athletic Hall of Fame Director said. “He said he was really looking forward to coming back to Kerrville. It will be really special to all of us to have someone like Avery help us celebrate this momentous occasion and induct these very deserving former Tivy athletes into the Hall of Fame.”

Johnson is currently the head basketball coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide. Johnson spent 16 years in the NBA as a player, and subsequently served as the head coach of two NBA teams: the Dallas Mavericks and New Jersey/Brooklyn Nets. He led the Mavericks to their first NBA Finals appearance and to three consecutive 50+ win seasons. During his playing days, Johnson was known as the “Little General” for his small stature, his leadership skills as a point guard and floor general, and his close friendship with former San Antonio Spurs teammate David “The Admiral” Robinson.
