Kidd switched teams, retired, and became a head coach all before Rose came back.

Many players can make the transition to coach, but to go from never coaching on any level to the head coach of an NBA team is a complete joke.

 

It's nothing but a PR ploy that's gonna backfire in the Nets' face.

Avery Johnson??

 

If you look at last year Kidd seemed to be doing more off court than on the court contributions his game was declining like crazy.  And besides its the (L)eastern conference they can get away with un-elite coaching from Kidd for a few years

Mark Jackson was in the running for COTY this past season and I can make a very strong case for Kidd having superior personality intangibles.

Lindsey Hunter? Jeff Hornaceck?

Kidd will surround himself with well qualified assistants that will help him make this work. He's been coaching his entire career. I'd take a guy like Jason Kidd over many coaches out there today.

He's a future hall of famer and one of the best players of his generation. He's been there. Him playing as long and as well as he did is enough qualification. There is no requirement to becoming an NBA coach.

Not every player becomes a good coach. Especially great players like Kidd. 

 

I guess he couldn't stay away from the game much.

The sad part is even though Jason Kidd has ZERO coaching experienced, he is better than MDA. 


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

Thanks True Lakers Fan always appreciate the quality input. :clap2:  Going against the popular opinion considered "dumb statements", cool, whatever floats your boat.

 

You're absolutely right, there is nor requirement for becoming an NBA coach, however, there is a requirement for becoming a good coach.  The players you mentioned, Jackson, Hunter, Hornacek or Larry Bird and Magic when he was the Lakers coach is that those players gave themselves ample time to get into the NBA world from other angles, and at the very least took some time to step back and assess what their coaching style may be or at the very least observed the league and what they may bring to the table later on.

 

Kidd just retired, within the last 30 days.  He has had no time to prep any kind of game plan and has given himself no time to look at the NBA from a distance to see what he could bring to the table.  This is a recipe for a coaching disaster.

 

You have to give yourself time to transition from player to executive, coach or whatever role you want within an NBA team.  Commentator, heck, we all know that takes no time to transition to, but this is a totally different ballgame we're talking about.

 

I must be crazy because I would never, in a million years, take Kidd over Karl, Sloan, Jackson, Shaw, Rivers (possibly), Scott or several other coaches that are or may become available.  But then again maybe this is just another one of my "dumb statements".

 

Time will tell, but my money is on this coaching decision being made to bring even more fans to games and to get the Nets into the spotlight a little bit.

just my opinion, my friend. Mark Jackson came from the announcing booth, like Kidd he had no coaching experience at all, and look at the Warriors. Like Kidd he was a PG too

Yes, good point. That weak Eastern Conference will help disguise some of his shortcomings as well.

True Lakers Fan, did you read the rest of my post and the point I made about the difference with Kidd?

An why does skin color matter whatsoever?

I do not think he was trying to make a racist comment or make any racial remarks. I think he just wanted to know if he's half-black.

Yeah, I took it as just some innocent curiosity as well, but he would've been better suited with an easy & quick google search that could've provided the answer he was looking for.

Yes, I did I understand your point.but it's still not right to automatically assumed stuff either

 

and it's really doesn't  was just wondering. Funny enough I believe Doc Rivers and KC Jones and Bill Russel are the only black coaches to win an NBA title? Correct me if I'm wrong
