Some players off the field activities are just overlooked, while others are held against them until the end of time. Jason Kidd DWI charge didn’t stop the Nets from hiring him as head coach, but he does have to clear up the matter with the court on June 20th.
To refresh your memory, Kidd got drunk at a party in the Hamptons, had to be carried out of the party and then crashed his SUV into a Telephone Pole. He told the cops he was so drunk, he didn’t remember the crash.
He was very lucky he didn’t hurt himself or someone else with that bad decision. Hopefully his decisions as a head coach will be better.
