Dirk Nowitzki of the Mavericks has moved past Brooklyn’s Kevin Garnett on the NBA’s scoring list, at least for now. Dirk now sits in 14th place on the all-time list.
Former Dallas Mavericks point guard and current Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd pleaded guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge.
Kidd was introduced on Thursday as the new coach of the Brooklyn Nets, less than 24 hours after he was hired by the franchise that he led to its greatest NBA success.
Less than two weeks after ending his long career, Jason Kidd acknowledged he has “a lot to learn about coaching” Thursday as he took the Nets job despite having no experience.
Jason Kidd, hired to coach the Brooklyn Nets just days after retiring as a player, has a pending court case in New York stemming from a drunken driving arrest.
Hello, Brooklyn. The Nets will introduce Kidd as their new head coach on Thursday at a 2 p.m. press conference at Barclays Center.
Early reports are saying that former Dallas Maverick Jason Kidd has been picked to be the next head coach of the Brooklyn Nets.
Kidd met with general manager Billy King on Monday and Shaw is expected to meet with the team Wednesday.
Brooklyn’s coaching search is “strongly pointing toward” Kidd after his meeting with team brass, the Post reported, adding that he’s “viewed as the leading candidate for the job.”
Kidd is interested in Brooklyn’ coaching position and plans to talk to the team this week, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Sunday.
The Nets are continuing to search for their next head coach, and it’s no secret that owner Mikhail Prokhorov likes big names. Cue Larry Brown, the current head men’s basketball coach at Southern Methodist University.
Every play near the basket looked like a traffic accident. There were long scoreless stretches. Shooting from outside was a dicey proposition. It was ugly for everyone but the Chicago Bulls. This was their type of game.
