Brooklyn Nets: Frank “reassigned”, it’s now on Kidd’s shoulders


Who knew, the “head coach” of the Brooklyn Nets actually has some pull. It’s safe to say that the Jason Kidd/Lawrence Frank era didn’t last long in Brooklyn – precisely 17 games. AKA good enough for five wins.

Kidd announced on Tuesday that Frank had been “reassigned” and would be doing daily reports for the Nets, not on the bench anymore. AKA, Frank is now basically a blogger for the Nets official website.

“it’s just different philosophies,” Kidd says. “That’s it.”

But here’s the thing, the Nets are 5-12, so who’s responsible for that awful start? They have “difference philosophies”, who’s philosophy was it to go 5-12?

With that said, this shouldn’t be a surprise. There had been rumors for the past couple of weeks about Kidd’s inability to coach and how Frank and Kidd weren’t on the same page – which were shot down numerous of times by the team. Turns out, it was all straight – it appears.

Wouldn’t it be so awesome if the Nets completely turned things around and make a run with Kidd as the “real” head coach now? Don’t bet on it, but it would be an interesting twist.
