“Here’s what I don’t understand about Yankees fans,” Christie said. “The Mets stink. We’re awful. And the Yankees are usually really good. So why do you boo us? You should feel badly for us.”
Former teammates, coaches and notable players around the NBA agree that Jason Kidd will make a successful transition to coaching.
Knicks great Patrick Ewing has been waiting more than 10 years for his shot as head coach in the NBA, and his son isn’t too happy about it.
Kidd has heard the talk. There’s a date — in 2013-14 or perhaps the following season — when he’d be allowed to suit up on a 10-day contract and hit the court. Don’t count on it.
Kidd was introduced on Thursday as the new coach of the Brooklyn Nets, less than 24 hours after he was hired by the franchise that he led to its greatest NBA success.
Jason Kidd, hired to coach the Brooklyn Nets just days after retiring as a player, has a pending court case in New York stemming from a drunken driving arrest.
Doc Rivers would be the Knicks’ best coach since Pat Riley — sorry Jeff Van Gundy, but it’s true — and that hiring would make the Jason Kidd signing look like nothing more than a PR stunt.
Jason Kidd retired just over a week ago and already has a head coaching job. Knicks great Patrick Ewing has been waiting over 10 years for his shot. And that’s enough to get under his son’s skin.
I just don’t get it. It was reported that Jason Kidd “impressed” GM Billy King during his meeting. With what? His shiny championship ring?
The Brooklyn Nets have hired Jason Kidd as their coach, bringing the former star back to the franchise. Kidd just retired after his 19th NBA season and the Nets decided to hire him despite his lack of coaching experience.
Kidd met with general manager Billy King on Monday and Shaw is expected to meet with the team Wednesday.
The Heat changed things up, and now it is time for Gregg Popovich to adjust. Is there anyone else you would want in that film room and on the practice floor figuring out how to counter those moves more than Popovich?
Brooklyn’s coaching search is “strongly pointing toward” Kidd after his meeting with team brass, the Post reported, adding that he’s “viewed as the leading candidate for the job.”
Since Kidd single-handedly turned around the Nets franchise upon his trade to New Jersey in 2002, they owe him. If there’s some capacity in which Kidd could fit in with the club’s long-term plans, it’s worth the discussion. Just not as head coach.
Kidd is interested in Brooklyn’ coaching position and plans to talk to the team this week, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Sunday.
