Jason Kidd Is Interested In The Nets Coaching Job
Jason Kidd, a 19 year NBA veteran and a sure hall of famer is interested in coaching the Brooklyn Nets.
The Nets job would be a perfect fit for Kidd who retired at the end of this season. Brooklyn has a lot of young, raw talent that includes the likes of Brooke Lopez, Deron Williams, and Joe Johnson, and were one win away from making it to the second round of the NBA playoffs. How could Kidd or anyone in the five boroughs ignore the notion that Lakers star center Dwight Howard wants to leave LA and may sign with the Nets?
Nets' fans are already quite fond of Kidd because he played with them from 2001-2008, and led them to back to back Finals appearances for the first time in the franchise's history. I feel he would be a good fit in Brooklyn. He is one of the best point guards that we have ever seen in the NBA, his career numbers speak for themselves.
Kidd was a ten time NBA All-Star, an NBA champion, 2 time Olympic gold medalist, 5 time NBA assists leader, scored 17,529 career points, and had 12,091 assists. He ended his career in the top three in assists, steals, and threes.
The one thing that Kidd will have going against him is that he has no coaching experience at all. Generally speaking, the best coaches are former players, who better to coach the game than someone who actually played it?
As for Kidd, I feel that he would make a fine head coach, 19 years of experience in the NBA will be quite a valuable tool to help him lead Brooklyn to the promise land.
