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

jasonspill

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.

BREAKING: Nets to hire Jason Kidd

Image

Jason Kidd will become the next head coach of the Brooklyn Nets. Reporters from Yahoo, ESPN, and CBS are reporting on Twitter than the Nets have agreed to hire Kidd after meeting with their final candidate, Brian Shaw, for four hours. Kidd announced his retirement last week after a 19 year career with the Mavericks, Suns, Nets, and Knicks. A three year deal between Kidd and the Nets will be finalized shortly.

Time will tell if the Nets made the right move by hiring a rookie coach despite being in win-now mode. With other established coaches such as George Karl and Lionel Hollins on the market, Brooklyn’s choice is certainly a questionable one. Kidd was one of the smartest players to ever play the game of basketball, but was plagued by off-court mistakes throughout his storied career.

BREAKING: Knicks’ Kidd retires from NBA

Future Hall of Fame point guard Jason Kidd announced his retirement from the NBA Monday after 19 years in the league. Kidd played one year with the Knicks to wrap up a legendary career in which he played for the Mavericks, Nets, and Suns. Let’s take a look at Jason Kidd’s storied career in numbers:

  • NBA champion
  • 2nd all-time leader in assists
  • 2nd all-time leader in steals
  • 3rd all-time leader in triple-doubles
  • 3rd all-time leader in three-pointers
  • 10 time All-Star
  • 6 time All-NBA selection
  • Rookie of the Year
  • Naismith High School Player of the Year
  • 9 time All-Defensive selection
  • All-rookie team
  • All-Star Skills Challenge winner
  • Olympic Gold Medalist

Kidd’s career is over, and his retirement probably came at the right time. He will be remembered as one of the greatest, smartest players to ever play the game and will be inducted into the Hall of Fame 5 years from now. His salary will come off the books for the Knicks immediately. Congratulations to Jason on a magnificent career, and hopefully we will see him in a coaching spot soon.
