Lawrence Frank took the bullet for a second time for the now Brooklyn Nets but also once before as the head couch of the former New Jersey Nets.
I was shocked. then disappointed and then quickly angered after listening to Kidd and then reading some of the history behind this move.
Kidd’s manufactured slow speaking style belies the fact that he is also slow thinking … but noticeably lightening fast to react when it comes to his job security.
In what was one of the most overt pointing of fingers and throwing under the bus moves in NBA history … no one can accuse Kidd of lacking hubris or a super ego for that matter.
My own opinion of Kidd went from what was once 9 to 7 when he played for the Knicks and embarrassed himself towards the end of his career.
After this stone throwing episode with Lawrence Frank, Jason Kidd is now zero in my book.
After all is said and done the head coach is THE coach .. and Frank has always been a good soldier for the Nets.
The disadvantage to Frank was the lousy Nets teams he was forced to coach when Nets management was too preoccupied with re-arranging ownership and moving to Brooklyn then the team that was fielded under Frank.
One can only sit and watch as Kidd now re-starts his coaching career – with the implication that Frank’s philosophy and not his “head” coaching has been the problem behind the teams lousy start.
In my opinion after listening to Kidd’s presser … I think he(Kidd) is a bum.
Brian Shaw would have been a much classier and better quality choice …..
