Joe Johnson Says the Nets Barely Practiced Under Jason Kidd (VIDEO)

by September 29, 2014

Former Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd wasn’t exactly a stickler for team practices last season. So says Nets guard Joe Johnson (at the 3:48 mark of the video clip above.)

Kidd, now the head coach in Milwaukee, apparently didn’t ask his veteran-laden squad to practice a whole lot in 2013-’14. Per The Brooklyn Game:

New Brooklyn Nets coach Lionel Hollins is big on team practices, while recent retired player and one-year Nets coach Jason Kidd de-emphasized getting together in between games.


When Nets guard Joe Johnson was asked to contrast Hollins’s willingness to practice with Kidd’s lack thereof … well, his face just about says it all.
