First time head coach Jason Kidd was invited to a special movie screening. Kidd was at the New York premiere of the new Matt Damon/Jodie Foster film “Elysium”.
The Source asked Kidd about movies and he spoke about how they could be beneficial to his team.
Jason Kidd: I’m a big fan of the “Matrix.” I thought that was a classic, it kind of gave us something of what the future could be. But also some of the plot of this movie! He’s fighting for what he believes in and so it’s something that hopefully when I see them, now that I’m a coach, I can use this as one of my tools.
Q: Speaking of which, how have the new members of the Nets meshed with the team?
Jason Kidd: They’ve been great, we got a great group of guys. And so I’m very excited about the veteran guys and I’m looking forward to it. But you know, when you come to movies like this you pick up different things.
After attaining Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, motivation shouldn’t be the issue, but gaining chemistry will be key.
