Found this pretty fantastic and ballsy of JKidd ... literally a week after retiring as a player, he is angling for the Head Coaching position in Brooklyn. I have to say though .. I think this is a great idea. I don't a player in the league who wouldnt' listen to what JKidd has to say, and god knows he knows how to run an offense.
What do you guys think, good idea for Brooklyn?
Gregg Popovich seems to be on board -
"Well, you know, I think of course it's an individual thing, but when you've played in the league as long as Jason has and played for a number of coaches, he's pretty much seen everything that the NBA can offer. So he does have experience," Popovich said before Game 2 of the finals.
Popovich tried to sign Kidd away from the Nets a decade ago, believing he could help mentor point guard Tony Parker.
"If he's crazy enough to want to be a head coach in the league, I wish him all the best," Popovich said. "But he certainly has the intuitive skills to know what's going on out there. Obviously, he would be able to have relationships with the players that he's had with his coaches throughout."
