Jason Kidd Not On The Hot Seat With Brooklyn Nets
The Brooklyn Nets have struggled early, in a season hugely surrounded by injury and big championship aspirations.
Instead, led by first year coach Jason Kidd, the team has begun 6-14 and has caused speculation on the power struggle going on within the Nets coaching staff with the reassignment of assistant head coach and good friend Lawrence Frank.
According to Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News the team is showing a lot of patience with the coach,
“Kidd isn’t in as much trouble as you’d think. The Nets don’t believe they’ll get an accurate picture of what he can do as a coach until they’ve got their full complement of players. That means the clock isn’t ticking on him until after Deron Williams comes back and starts playing regularly.”
The Nets seems to play well against the Milwaukee Bucks. But they are the worst team in the NBA.
With an aging and slow team full of injuries, Brooklyn is looking to put the struggles behind them to continue their championship hopes.
The team plays the surprisingly first place Boston Celtics tomorrow at the Barclays Center as Kevin Garnett, Jason Terry, and Paul Pierce (the later two which are still injured) play their former team for the first time this season.
