Things ended badly for head coach Jason Kidd and the Brooklyn Nets last June, as Kidd stunningly accepted a job in Milwaukee.
Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov addressed the matter for the first time publicly Monday night, and basically said good riddance to Kidd.
Prokhorov is happy with new head coach Lionel Hollins.
Per The Record (N.J.):
“You know, I think there is a nice proverb in English: Don’t let the door hit you where the good lord split you,” Prokhorov said with a laugh.
Prokhorov didn’t deny that he was angry Monday — especially given the Nets had taken a chance on Kidd. […] “You know, I think it’s very philosophical question,” Prokhorov said. “I think we shouldn’t get mad, I think we should get even. And we’ll see it on the court.”
“Each side, we did what we thought was the best,” Prokhorov said of Kidd. “And I like what we have now, I think our structure is optimal. We have a very strong experienced coach, and a very strong GM Billy King. So for the time being we are just OK.”
