Yahoo! Sports’ sources said the Nets organization has discussed Kidd as a candidate for the open coaching position at the highest levels.
All in all, this should be a very exciting and competitive series. San Antonio will likely have to win two games in Miami to win the series. It’s a tall order, but if any team can win a Game 7 in Miami, it’s a veteran team like the Spurs.
Kidd instantly made the Nets relevant, then respected, then regal.
Legendary Nets and Knicks point guard Jason Kidd has retired from the NBA after a storied 19-year career.
After a notably less-than-stellar performance in the last month of the season, Knicks point guard Jason Kidd said he hasn’t watched any basketball since getting ousted by the Pacers in a devastating game 6 loss in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
“There’s a lot of different stuff I may have the opportunity to do,” Kidd said. “If I play, I plan on playing for the Knicks. I got to be honest with myself. I’m a young man. (But) I got to see if I could still mentally do the grind all over again.”
On Tuesday I went over the Knicks’ financial situation for the next three years, so keep that in mind as we go through the offseason decisions that the Knicks will have to make. Here are where the pivotal points are going to be.
Amar’e Stoudemire will go into next season with $45 million left on his contract and no guarantee of a starting job. He also could remain a reserve who plays restricted minutes.
Boeheim says Anthony has no shot at winning an NBA title with the Knicks. Or at least with these Knicks.
Some of the players were old, though the Knicks say their team is young in its development. So they feel they need time, not an overhaul, to get further next season.
As the chess match continues on Saturday night in Indiana, trust Woodson. It took five games, but he once again has the pulse of his team against Indiana’s strengths and weaknesses.
All it will take for the Knicks is for someone to hit some shots early. Shooting can be contagious, and the Knicks have all been wearing FEMA suits the past couple of weeks.
Whichever players are on the court for the Knicks when they try to save their season Thursday night, coach Mike Woodson just wants them to shoot with confidence.
The Knicks should beat the Pacers because, frankly, Indiana is not that talented. But they’re tough. And Anthony isn’t. If he were, if he were the least bit unselfish and introspective, he would learn to change his game and his name.
Here’s the deal: unless Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith and Tyson Chandler get going, the Knicks aren’t going to win anything.
