Jason Kidd Wants to Coach the Brooklyn Nets

Future Hall-of-Famer Jason Kidd isn’t just going to sit idly by now that he’s retired. Nope, Kidd is apparently angling to become an NBA head coach. Per Yahoo! Sports: “Kidd has been talking with associates about the possibility of making the immediate leap from a Hall of Fame playing career to a head coaching job, and has been working to identify a staff of assistant coaches who could help him overcome the significant learning curve, sources said. The Nets have considered Indiana Pacers associate head coach Brian Shaw as their top target for the vacancy, but are competing with the Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets to secure him. Kidd still has strong ties within the Nets’ organization that he revived with consecutive NBA Finals appearances (2002 and ’03). After 19 seasons in the league, Kidd retired last week after one season with the New York Knicks. Before Kidd signed a free-agent deal with the Knicks, he considered re-joining the Nets as a backup to star point guard Deron Williams. Kidd and Williams have a strong relationship and share an agent.”

    I can just picture it now. Jason Kidd in the video room with all the Nets players:


    “This is not how you defend a three point shot in the final minutes of the game.”

    Make it happen! I don’t know if IQ on the court instantly translates to good coaching but if anyone can do it, I think Jason Kidd can. Best floor general in the last 15 years.

    Imagine that… A coach killer, being coached, by a coach killer. Who would win???

    What are they saying about that being an offensive foul, can someone clarify? Are they saying that Kidd tried to trip him by sticking his leg out?

  • Sajjatam Tp Kulsomboon

    I think it’s called the “Reggie Miller Offensive Foul”. Reggie used to do it all the time when he was shooting. And everyone hates Reggie, so they decided to call it a foul because every time someone did it, his alien face just popped up in their heads.

    Seriously though, I think Reggie himself admitted some point that it was dirty (I can’t find the article on it for some reason), and I guess the league to action towards it.

    Just looked it up after, you’re right. Is that call made a lot though? I feel like in the world of NBA = Entertainment its the equivalent of calling a charge on a posterizer, so only if its blatantly obvious.

    Man, Brian Shaw can’t get a break.

  • Sajjatam Tp Kulsomboon

    Thanks for the research man. I’ve never seen it called in any other instance though, so maybe like you said: only if it really obvious. Or maybe just in big game situations where it might cause controversy.
    Of course, calling the foul itself would cause controversy anyways…

    My head hurts.
