It's Official: Jason Kidd is the Brooklyn Net's new head coach.
Man, that was quick.
Good luck Jason!
It'll be interesting to see if one of the games greatest on-court minds in the last couple of decades can lead a team effectively. There's a big difference between coaching and playing, as he'll find out quickly. I wish him the best of luck as a head coach!
Quite shocking overall. Good luck to Jason Kidd. I hope it works out wonderfully for him and the Nets.
Honestly speaking me being a 18 year old kid from Queens I grew up watching Jason Kidd play for the Nets. He took a team that starred Nenad Krstic, Kmart, Kerry Kittles, RJ and Scalabrine and brought them to the Finals twice, almost averaging a triple double, I was amazed. I can happily say he is my favorite player of all time and I wish him all the success in the world as a coach. Great basketball player and mind!
^^^^ im w you. and without a doubt i always thought JKidd was the sickest PG of our generation. It was showtime to see him and Kmart play together. i can remember all those great games he had in PHX as well.
no coaching experience just hung up the kicks there were better coaches out there ijs!
No doubt in my mind hes gonna be a fantastic coach. Great basketball mind and I think he'll have a big influence on Deron too. Nets arent going anywhere but up.
He was playing for the knicks a few weeks ago and now he's a head coach! good luck to him
At the very least it is going to be interesting.
And I'm glad we didn't get a recycled coach.
But he's still just a Kidd. Sorry, couldn't resist.
Mark Jackson experiment in Oakland is what is driving this. Glad kidd gets to lead our team and hopefully were ready
This is a head scratcher for me. Never thought of him as the coaching type....... should be interesting.
This difference with Mark Jackson is that he is a few years removed from the league. He spent a lot of time with Van Gundy in the booth. It might be tough for him since he might have personal relationships with other players
He'll be fine, he'll already get the respect of his players which is half the battle. I heard he's bringing in Lawrence Frank as his assistant so he's covered the x's and o's side. Kidd is going to be just fine.
idk about that, i think him and dwill might clash a little bit.
think about this though, just watch if he loses a ton and loses his job, the interm coach would be frank. back from the old bag head days! frank is a good coach tho and i liked him as the coach of the pistons a ton. i wish they could have made a new deal and kept him.
sucks to be brian shaw and all the other hard working assistant coaches who have been waiting for a head coach position since time. this guy retires and eight seconds later gets hired as a HEAD coach. congrats to him but it sucks for the guys grinding hard out there for years now
Jason Kidd had a playing CV that from a personal performance point was way ahead of most NBA assistant coaches but in any sport a great player may not always make a great coach. But Brooklyn have made a bold move and Coach Kidd does have a nice ring to it.
