A week ago, one of the best floor generals in the history of the NBA in Jason Kidd decided to hang it up after realizing his limitations at the age of 40. When you retire from a career you’ve held onto for 19 years, you’d think some kind of nice vacation to a fancy island is in order. Instead, news has broken that Kidd has become a real candidate to become the next head coach of the Brooklyn Nets. Does this guy love the game of basketball or what? Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports broke the story:
After meeting with Brooklyn Nets management Monday, the head coaching candidacy of Jason Kidd has emerged as formidable in possibility, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Kidd has convinced Nets management of his seriousness of committing the time and energy necessary to move into a head coaching job within weeks of his retirement as a 10-time NBA All-Star point guard, league sources said.
