You knew when the Nets hired Jason Kidd this was going to either go really well or explode on contact. It has been the latter.
Yahoo.com is saying he might not even make it to the All-Star break.
The Nets had tried to be supportive of Kidd, but patience is running low on the belief he can deliver the structure and organization desperately needed. As the Nets have devolved into chaos, Kidd has increasingly isolated himself within the locker room and organization, sources told Yahoo Sports. From management to players, Kidd has shown an inability to manage crisis and keep the respect of his players.
Here’s the question management is grappling with: Does Brooklyn start unloading its star players and stay the course with the coach, or unload the coach and let someone else manage these star players?
Whatever the dismal Atlantic Division standings say about the Nets trailing first place by only three games, Kidd won’t reach the All-Star break without restoring order to his team.
Bill Simmons believes the problem is Jason Kidd doesn’t work hard enough.
Also keep hearing that a big stickler for the Nets vets with Kidd is that he doesn't wotk hard. Like a Steve Spurrier/Redskins situation.

I find it ironic that people seem surprised that Kidd who has had his brushes with the law and was known as a coach killer as a player, can’t handle a crisis.
I don’t think nothing can save the Nets now and they need to cut ties.
