Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd heard all about Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov’s flippant remarks about his strange departure from Brooklyn.
Kidd says he doesn’t understand why his former team continues to mention him in the press, and would much prefer to settle this beef with the Russian billionaire on the court.
The season’s first meeting between the Nets and Bucks will take place Nov. 19 in BK.
Per the Journal Sentinel:
“I’m no longer in Brooklyn,” Kidd said. “Unfortunately they keep talking about it. I don’t. I’ll let them keep talking.
“Now if it was me and him playing 1-on-1 on the court, that would be fine.”
Kidd said of the ongoing saga: “You would have to ask him (Prokhorov) why they keep talking about it.” […] Speaking about the game on Nov. 19, Kidd said: “It’s one of 82. I’m only worried about tonight (against Indiana). I’ve been in hostile environments as a player, as a coach. … I think it’s a part of the game. I think the one thing we can all learn from this is class.”
