Well if you haven't heard yet, the Brooklyn Nets have hired one of their former players; point guard Jason Kidd.
The Nets quickly agreed to contract details on Wednesday with Kidd, 40, who retired as a player only nine days ago. The Nets will have to surround Kidd, who led the franchise to consecutive NBA Finals as a player but who has no coaching experience, with a seasoned bench of assistants.
The job was offered to Kidd hours after team officials met for nearly five hours with the only other known candidate for the job, Pacers associate head coach Brian Shaw.
Shortly after Kidd was hired, the son of our new Associate Head Coach (Patrick Ewing) tweeted the following...
Patrick Ewing Jr @pewingjr6
For real though I'm mad J Kidd got a head coaching job a year after retiring n my pops been coaching 10 years n barely gets a look
I think Ewing Jr. would be furious if he realized that Kidd was hired a week after retiring, not a year.
