Jason Kidd spills his drink on the court… On Purpose? (GIF)


With 8 seconds left in the Nets-Lakers game and Lakers Guard Jodie Meeks preparing to shoot game-clinching free throws for Los Angeles, Nets Coach Jason Kidd spilled his drink on the floor, causing the game to be briefly delayed before Meeks hit his free throws to put Brooklyn’s comeback effort to bed. Why was Kidd drinking instead of drawing up a play? Was he trying to ice the shooter? What was in his drink? Who will drive him home? So many questions, and we’ll never have the answers… Or do we? Was this intentional? A video posted of the incident shows Jason Kidd apparently saying “Hit Me” to Taylor right before the spill…

UPDATE: Kidd has been fined $50,000 by the NBA.
