NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Jason Kidd began June as a member of the New York Knicks. He’ll end it as head coach of the Brooklyn Nets.
Meanwhile, Knicks great Patrick Ewing has been waiting more than 10 years for his shot.
“I’m disappointed,” Ewing told WFAN’s Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton on Friday. “Naturally, everybody who does this thing, their goal is to be a head coach. I felt I’ve paid my dues, I’ve worked hard, I’ve studied hard with the goal of trying to become a head coach.”
He added: “I’m disappointed that it hasn’t happened yet. But all I can do is just keep on working and keep on hoping that one day somebody will have faith in me the way that they have faith in Jason, that he can get the job done.”
