In his first trip back to Brooklyn as head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. The still jilted fans at the Barclays Center, booed Jason Kidd like no tomorrow. Which was kinda weird with his freshly retired jersey hanging over their heads. Per Newsday:
“I think sometimes things don’t end the right way,” Kidd said. “Sometimes things — one side talks, the other side goes about its business. So I think, again, from their side, it’s business. It happens. Coaches have gotten traded. Doc [Rivers] got traded from Boston. Was it a big deal, Doc being traded? No. It’s part of the business. As a player, you get traded, and as a coach, you have the opportunity to get traded. So that’s what happens. We move on. Unfortunately, one side hasn’t. But eventually, both sides will move on.”
Kidd ended up having the last laugh pulling out a 122-118 triple overtime victory, but it’s gonna take some time for Kidd and BK to eventually get along. If ever.
