Ah, so the Brooklyn Nets really pulled a shocker, huh? Like all of y’all, I’m completely speechless. With the rumors swirling that the recently retired Jason Kidd would take the head coaching position for Brooklyn Nets earlier this week, the organization has made it official by signing the future Hall-of-Fame point guard to a three year deal (with an option for a fourth.) Yahoo! Sports states that among other candidates for the job, such as Brian Shaw, who was interviewed by the Nets GM Billy King for almost 5 hours on Wednesday, Kidd was a no-brainer decision for the team after the latter wasn’t chosen for the job. Some may argue that Shaw would’ve made a great fit for the squad, which I agree upon, but when it comes down to selling out arenas and a ticket, the name game is what it’s about. Kidd, the teacher, will be passing down his lessons to the student Deron Williams—so, really, who can go against that? Without a coaching gig to his resume, the former Knicks guard is going to have to depend heavily on his assistant coaching staff, which is reportedly going to have former Nets coach Lawrence Frank on the sidelines. Good luck Kidd, you’re in for a rude awakening in a big city with big expectations.
