Don’t look now people, but Jason Kidd can coach.
This is the new age of media that we live in. Almost one month ago, Kidd was suppposed to be this joke of a coach who spilled soda on the court, was losing his team and ran off a $1 million assistant coach.
Now Kidd has stopped wearing ties, simplified things for the Nets and has his team rolling. So what caused this change in the Nets and in their coach.
Deron Williams told Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News that can began to thrive as a coach after the removal of Lawrence Frank as his top assistant.
“I think since Lawrence as left. . . he was leaning on (Frank) a lot,” Williams said. “So now I think he’s coaching the way he wants to and doing things the way he wants to so that’s what you’re seeing.
“I think you see him putting his footprint on the game a little bit more, especially lately,” Williams added. “He’s done a great job. He’s learning on the job, and we knew that coming in. But he’s doing a great job, especially now.”
Good for Jason Kidd.
