Jan 22nd 2018
27
And they don't have Jabari. Thibs was 31-51 last year. Bucsk .500 now.
Jan 22nd 2018
31
They couldn't even wait for jabari
Jan 22nd 2018
32
The timing seems odd.
Jan 22nd 2018
35
never getting past the 1st round in the weak-ass East aint winning
Jan 22nd 2018
36
      How about Thibs being 31-51 last year? With awful defense?

           "Your team" has the face of the NBA for the next decade.
Jan 23rd 2018
64
                cool...only problem is coaching is about more than that
Jan 23rd 2018
66
                     Coaching isn't maximizing talent, getting the most out of players?
Jan 23rd 2018
68
                          is he doing that this year? no.
Jan 23rd 2018
75
                               Bucks don't have their second player player. Minny ADDED Jimmy Butler.
Jan 23rd 2018

      True

This gonna solve everything, right?
Jan 22nd 2018
49
BWHAHAHA!!! GIANNIS ACTIVELY TRIED TO KEEP KIDD!!
Jan 22nd 2018
52
It's the only coach he's known. Is this surprising?
Jan 23rd 2018
54
      No, Einstein. It's the coach who taught him how to be 29 and 10.
Jan 23rd 2018
62
LMAO. Note how all the shit talk stopped when the Giannis shit broke.
Jan 23rd 2018
53
Thibs was 31-51 last year? I didn't know this
Jan 23rd 2018

White people get to fail, and it's NEVER their fault. EVER.

      brian schoettenheimer almost broke me this week
Jan 23rd 2018
78
I don't think anybody expected Kidd to get fired
Jan 23rd 2018
58
What if Kidd's sleepy style isn't actually the best thing for Giannis?
Jan 23rd 2018
59
Right, OBVIOUSLY Kidd doesn't develop talent, right? (LMAO)
Jan 23rd 2018
63
Could someone tell me what Thibs's record was last year?
Jan 23rd 2018
60
      31-51, 27th in the league in DEFENSIVE rating.

                               With a league MVP #1 overall pick and multiple all-stars, you imbecile.
Jan 30th 2018

Jan 30th 2018

Jabari denies beef with Kidd...PR move or no?
Jan 30th 2018

Yeah, obvious at this point that they lied, and tarnished Kidd's name

we need a pg

-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.

In response to Reply # 5


  

          


Wolves were 31-51 with MULTIPLE studs and were allowed to
ADD A PERENNIAL ALL-STAR.

I wonder how good the Bucks would be if they added...say..
...Paul George (Butler is actually better than George, tho).

at that old Shaq comedy special still holds up.

I have to wonder if Kidd ever spoke to Shaq face to face over that.

Y'all can't do the 'racially paranoid' thing anymore.

White people aren't fond of black people.

I won that longstanding debate around here, when y'all
used to say I make shit up.

The TWolves were 31-51 last year.

The Bucks are .500 this year. Without Jabari. Having
added Bledsoe, who was a mess, during the season.

There is no reason Kidd deserved to be fired.

With 2 #1 overall picks. Thibs was allowed to ADD
another All-Star, and is now applauded as a genius.

Bucks are .500 this year, without their
highest draft pick. (Jabari), having added
a dude (Bledsoe) who nobody wanted, who has
actually transitioned in nicely (unquestionably
because he's coached by one of the best guards
ever)

Giannis developed entirely under Jason Kidd, but
apparently he gets no credit for that. (including
as a playmaker, which I guess Kidd had nothing to
do with)

Lulz.


The world is the gift that keeps on giving the Orbster.

the worse part about the superteams era is that it makes everyone in win now or nothing mode. If you have an ounce of talent, there's no window for it to be develop cohesively. They just added bledsoe this season.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Unless they have a line on Fizdale and think they can bring him in and have him work some magic during the season, I can't think why he would be fired mid-season.

Kidd was alright to me. He at least had the team winning and brought Giannis along so he should get credit for that.

That being said, maybe the GM thinks MIL is like GS before Kerr was hired - a young team with good to great parts which could be improved if they played under the right coach / system.

I don't know if that is the right line of reasoning. Kerr figured it out better than anyone expected. It isn't likely that a scenario like that works itself out again. Thinking that hiring a coach with a great sense of tactics is going to magically make MIL a top 3 team might be wishful thinking.

He was able to "tread water" and ADD AN ELITE NBA
player to his team.

Why didn't Kidd at least get to wait for Jabari, if not
be able to add an ELITE All-star level player?

The answer is racism.

even your ridiculous thibs comparison doesn't hold water. the team improved slightly in his first year and has improved greatly this year. kidd had the team improving, now they have taken a significant step back. i am surprised he got canned and they didn't handle it well BUT it's not an apple/apple comparison by any stretch and no one can defend kidd by saying he was getting great or even adequate results this year.

Wolves were 31-51 and 27th in the league defensively last year
with two number 1 overall picks one of them a pure ultra stud.

NOBODY was calling for Thibs' head.

The Bucks are a .500 team WITHOUT THEIR SECOND BEST PLAYER.

He was an average head coach which doesn't usually get you fired in the middle of the year.

I know some media members, as I guess their fans as well, didn't think highly of him. But to be fired mid-year with the team currently in the playoffs seems out of the ordinary.

The most comfortable and wisest people are those who watch their health when they are healthy; guard their country when it is untroubled; and cultivate their fields well when weeds are nonexistent or scarce. - Reverend Dosung Yoo

So Bucks OPENLY DEFYING their best player since Kareem,
one of the 5 best players in basketball, and the arguably
the future of the LEAGUE

Bwhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahhahahahahahahahahah

And LMAO @ the management not even having the decency to
TELL Kidd like adults.

But Bucks supposed to be a 60-win team, right? WITHOUT
Jabari, having brought in Bledsoe (who wasn't even PLAYING
ball before the trade)

It's essentially Giannis and a bunch of misfits
(an overachieving Brogdon, etc). Not to mention the fact
that Giannis is one of the great projects in league HISTORY
who has panned out ENTIRELY under Jason Kidd's tutelage

Kidd gets no credit, right?

Meanwhile, Thibs was 31-51 last year with MORE talent. Was
ALLOWED to ADD a PERENNIAL All-Star, and niggas in here
partying

You guys are such pathetic sacks of shit

Almost all of y'all

I think it's mostly jokes and real bucks fans being surprised.

But to your point, I was watching the bucks game last night and they interviewed the GM and dude has to be like 28 and has that smug "I know what I'm doing but I really don't know what I'm doing" resting face.

https://tinyurl.com/y9ce58da

He'll be fired within 2 yrs and I wouldn't be surprised if he's the entire reason Giannis wants out in a few seasons.

That said, if they trade for Jordan and hire Fitz and go on a 15 game win streak...I take it all back. lol

Kidd did a decent job from my perspective. Developed Jarbari, Giannis and Middleton. Working on Thon (who's potential had me nervous about this team but now I'm not sure about). Coach Brogdon to ROY.

The Bucks to me are like 1 allstar and an injury free Jabari away from being REALLY scary. Feels like that's on the horizon too and I think Kidd would have done well with it.

<---6 Like Mike!!!

It's an NBA coaching change, lmao...you acting like Kidd was untouchable because Giannis liked him...because he has no experience with other NBA coaches to compare. Maybe he'll just learn to adapt, and the next coach will end up being better.

Because Brogdon is a total bust, and Giannis

Oh Giannis would have been 29 and 10 with anyone?

He didn't OPENLY SAY that Kidd has developed him?





























Oh.

If I'm not mistaken, Giannis has been out the most recent couple of games due to knee soreness, so Kidd wasn't even fired when Giannis was on the court to assess if the Bucks were truly trash or not.

something something over agressive.

you also hear some of the WPWDPB standard complaint of bad offensive system (because only one black coach has ever been allowed to have a mind for offense, hallowed be Alvin Gentry's name) and, of course, bad out of bounds plays. can't be a good coach unless you run five picks coming out of every time out.

the defensive charges have some merit (EDIT: then again, I too am a WPWDPB), but mostly he's being blamed for a mismatched, offensively challenged roster and for being black.

Look I’m not Kidd’s biggest fan as a coach but any non-white person can look through this situation and see racism and white privilege 101

So kidd curses out Horst who is technically his boss, sure but this motherfucker has been director of basketball operation ( a pretty high up) job since he was 25. Any non-white people get those jobs or can even imagine them for a dleague level team?

Anywhoo this dude gets cursed out by a coach and throws a tantrum and decides to turn over the whole table — not even considering his franchise player in all this. Smart movevthere small market never win anything franchise— you just put blood in the water for some sharks.

Anyhoo part 2 read the Reddit comments from racist American white people applauding this with no eye or considerations for implications of any racism in the situation and actually call what Horst did an “alpha” move as opposed to a 3 yr old tantrum move that my daughter has every day....


Oh America

-There was a sizable group of players in the locker room that no longer respected Kidd and didn't think he had their back. There was a smaller group of 3-4 guys that were still loyal Kidd fans.

wasnt even worth citing because the bottom line is racism. This part is all hearsay and could be a part of teh Bucks Pr engine.

and at the end of the day if only Brogdon, Middleton, and GIANNIS had his back...who cares...thats the core.

lolz. even if it was that would still makes it Delly + more black players against Kidd than for him.

that's *if* Brogdon and Middleton are 2 of the 3-4 with Kidd. and it's an untenable team dynamic regardless.

Giannis is the only one who is tough and can handle criticism,
while these lazy sensitive millennial American negroes don't
take well to coaching, especially from one of the smartest
players to ever pick up a basketball. (note how Kidd's
intelligence never comes up...ever...it's offensive)

Either way,

Lebron was the only Cav who had a problem with Blatt.

Blatt got fired, Cavs won a chip.

That's basketball.

I'm noting how you are taking the word of random
white dudes on reddit and NOT one of the hardest,
most hard working, nice dudes in the league who also
happens to be a super duper star.

So apparently his opinion on the matter doesn't matter.

This is what I mean: instead of just admitting you're
wrong, openly shit on your best player who is by all
accounts a great guy.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

or a rather abrupt NBA coaching change?

not that i'm cool with it in general and not saying that racism in the L doesn't exist.
i wouldn't be surprised at all if it plays a role here.

but if we go by the things that have been reported in the past 20 years abut Kidd (which may all be fake news) then i would be hesitant to prematurely cry victim.

i can see the white privilege in the young buck calling the shots.

the one-dimensional selective reading of the sources here is just smh worthy.

In response to Reply # 100


  

          


...have been out:

(i) his extremely high intelligence
(ii)his extreme unselfishness

Coaches have said it. Over and over and over.
He had been an actual coach on the floor for years.
This is not a debate.

And he works like a maniac: few have ever improved their
shooting more...ever. He's top 10 all time in 3s, for
crying out loud, and was horrid coming into the league

He's one of the most impressive and unique players in
league history.

Everything else is silly. And so all this shit you're
talking about that should make us believe what bums
on the team are saying (AND NOT WHAT THE STAR OF THE
FUCKING TEAM IS SAYING)?

LOL.


What, you think Kidd wrong because of the Jimmy
Jackson feud over Toni Braxton back in 94-95?

LMAO.

You referring to dude's marital problems?

LOL.


This is my point:

When you're black, you can be a savant and people still
define you by random, nutjub rumors and shit from 20
years ago.

It's so offensive.

And has been mostly remarkable in his coaching career for his strange, if innovative and hilarious, late game tactics. So he's famous for things besides his unselfishness and brilliance.

And lots of great, brilliant players made for shit coaches. Magic and Larry seem like the obvious ones here, but all great passers always worry me as far as coaching goes because they just see shit that can't always be taught.

Full disclosure: I haven't watched enough Bucks basketball over the last two years to really judge Kidd as a coach. I just also know a lot of other people in here haven't either.

My lingering impression of him over the years is of him being a bit of an asshole but I had to refresh myself on his track record.

http://www.espn.com/blog/new-york/brooklyn-nets/post/_/id/19596/history-of-jason-kidds-past-incidents

not saying he's singularly the worst person in the NBA or even, objectively, THAT bad (other than the alleged wife beating). But with all the little power plays he's participated in over his career, this whole situation reads more like karma than racism.

That might be the single most absurd and unfortunate,
yet wildly pervasive, idea in America. And it has really
sad and unfortunate consequences.

In fact, the worst racism happens precisely TO imperfect
black men (the criminal justice system). Check the death
penalty data. Check the war on drugs data. In fact, we
make YOUR EXACT EXCUSE whenever this issue comes up:

"I"m not drumming up sympathy for a guy who did X."

What does him having done X have anything to do with him
deserving unfair treatment? Racism and racism.

An analogous issue has come up in the #MeToo movement:

A sex worker doesn't deserve to be raped or beaten any
more than any other woman. Rape is rape.

I recognize that you're probably not intelligent enough
to grasp this, and that's cool, almost nobody is.

But your post is exactly how racism operates, perniciously.

And that you so boldly walked into the issue, is exactly
why everything is fucked up.

In response to Reply # 121


          

He's consistently made destructive political moves throughout his playing and coaching career that should make anybody that's paying attention a little leery of his ability to build and develop constructive relationships in a basketball organization.

That makes his questionable relationship with Jabari more believable and, given the teams general lack of progress and some of the other issues directly attributable to him, gives the organization sufficient reason to make a move.

That doesn't mean prejudice plays no role; if he were white, I suspect he would've been given more times (undeservedly). That sounds more like white privilege than black oppression to me.

I understand they're 2 sides of the same coin but the nuance helps me train my ire correctly...i.e. I'd be more upset that a shiesty guy gets to keep his job unfairly than I would that a shiesty guy reasonably lost his job.

He lead what is probably the worst team to every get to an
NBA Final in those New Jersey Nets (carried them by himself),
won a Championship with the 2011 Mavs. And Carlisle routinely
said how "he had a coach on the floor," and he was roundly praised
by everyone on that team.

So you're lying right off the bat.

Lol.

>That makes his questionable relationship with Jabari more
>believable

You mean the rumor spread by management that Jabari himself
just debunked? That "questionable relationship?"

All you need is a gun and a badge, because you're posting
exactly like a racist cop who is lying, copping reasons
to pull me over.


and, given the teams general lack of progress and
>some of the other issues directly attributable to him, gives

"Lack of progress."

You mean the development of maybe the biggest NBA project
in the last 15 years (at least)? Giannis went from a legit
nobody to one of the 5 best players in the league under
Kidd. And Giannis OPENLY CREDITED Kidd. Funny how we discredit
intelligent black athletes when they compliment somebody black.

And he did it this year WITHOUT their second best player,
and other future franchise cornerstone (Jabari).

So what in the entire fuck are you talking about?

>That doesn't mean prejudice plays no role; if he were white, I

Wait...what?

Are you 11 years old?

If a black person isn't afforded opportunities that a white
person would have, that is, by definition, racist.

Good grief.

Do you read at all?

And even when you talk about his playing career, you have to ignore the repeated incidents where he's undermined his teammates and coaches.

No doubt he was a supremely talented player who understands the X's and O's, has a feel for the flow of the game and maximized his talent on the court to be a hall of fame player.

He was still a repeated dick to those around him and that aspect of him has carried on into his coaching career and is likely limiting his career.

Cmon man, these players very rarely own up to disliking their coaches in the media. They don't want that "coach killer" label.

I mean, I believe Giannis' relationship was genuine because of how far he went to try to save Kidd but Jabari's lukewarm statement well after the fact reads like PR.

Is he Giannis's personal coach or the coach of the Bucks? Because while Giannis has been improving, the team has remained around .500 with a foot in and out of the playoffs despite their growing pool fo talent.

So it's great the he helped Giannis improve but that isn't his only job.

Every coach deals with issues like injuries that are outside of their control.. building strong relationships with the front office and their players helps them weather those issues.

When? The Championship team with the Mavs, when Carlisle

an awful Nets team to the NBA Finals?

LOL

LMAO. Except for the times when he wasn't a dick, but was
a great teammate winning championships.

But ignore that, if youw ant.

OH, "reads like." LMAO. That's what we doing now? We
calling Jabari a LIAR?

I BET IF GIANNIS HAD SAID ANYTHING NEGATIVE Y'ALL MOTHERFUCKERS
WOULD HAVE TAKEN IT AS GOSPEL.

You guys are such, sad, silly, wimpy sacks of shit.

"Growing pool of talent!??!:

Where??!?

Tony Snell!?!?

LMAO

THE SECOND BEST PLAYER BLEW OUT HIS KNEE LAST YEAR.

And CONVENIENTLY he's coming back RIGHT as Kidd got
fired.

The Suns legit GAVE UP on Bledsoe, which is the only
reason he was available. (He's been playing well btw...
....but Kidd ain't got nothing to do wit that, right?)

OH WORD!?!?!?

So if the front office is toxic, you blaming the coach for it!?!?!!?


BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

I really can't take you seriously on this...I believe you know his statement was PR bullshit, but since it lends to your argument that everyone must have loved Genius, you're taking it as scripture. It's fucking see-through and phony, stoppit.

NO SHIT WE WOULD HAVE, BECAUSE PLAYERS DON'T SAY NEGATIVE SHIT ABOUT COACHES EVER, UNLESS THEY'RE DUMB. THAT'S MY FUCKING POINT.

>NO SHIT WE WOULD HAVE, BECAUSE PLAYERS DON'T SAY NEGATIVE SHIT

>POINT.

So because Jabari's comments didn't fit the bullshit
narrative in your head, you ignore what he said and keep
the bullshit, unsubstantiated idea in your head?

Meanwhile, Giannis OPENLY DEFENDED Kidd. You want to
talk about not common? A superstar being like "I'll call
management for you" isn't common either.

You didn't focus on that, though, because you guys are
stinking liars.

Giannis will probably go down as one of the 3 greatest
project-success stories ever. (greater than Yao, Mutumbo,
or any other those guys, by a lot. Even Olajuwon was
able to hone his skills in college) He OPENLY praised
Kidd all the time. And when Kidd was fired, he OPENLY
expressed disdain.

Comment from you? "Oh, Giannis just being loyal."

This is the double standard bullshit I'm talking about.

Give Kidd the credit -- he turned Giannis into a well
rounded superstar, and Giannis the best Bucks player since
Kareem, and might be the best player in the league post-Lebron.

And Kidd did not get the opportunity to coach Giannis anywhere
NEAR his prime, or develop the team around the tandem of Jabari
and Giannis. And he didn't, like Thibs, get the chance to
bring anyone else in. (Other than Bledsoe who is mostly
head-case reclamation project that is actually succeeding...but
again, no credit to Kidd!)

It's unfair, full of double standards.

i wasn't even thinking about that in the first place.
there are other documented workplace "problems". pretty recent ones, too.
we all have them. don't mean he is the guilty one. don't neccessarily mean he's always the victim either.
it's just one guy in here very desperate to ignore that possibility.
and that's actually the offensive part.

i said one-dimensional answers mostly don't apply in these situations.
i'm not saying being a troublemaker is what defines him. he's just been in situations (even in MIL) where this news doesn't come totally out of the blue.

kidd can be many things at the same time. one of those is being a HOFer, while maybe being "difficult" to other people and at the same time being liked by his star player.
just a possibility. i don't limit him to a bball genius, a race or one character trait.
you do that.

Shit, he could at least be funny with it. black or white it's somehow amazing this dude is going so hard investing so much time to be loud and wrong... for years lol. I hope it's the only board he's wasting his time.

Unmotivated, dejected, confused. Poor attitude.

Just kidding, loser. The master player developer is no longer needed. And you’re mad as fuck, praying the Bucks go on a long losing streak.

Actually, no. According to Giannis, Kidd taught him how
to be well rounded and a star. So Giannis gonna be incredible.

Kidd was fired right when the schedule gets easy, it's
transparent. AND JABARI coming back.

just for the sake of your argument, even though it's dumb to believe. You still haven't explained why that made Kidd immune and entitled him to keep his coaching job going FORWARD.

And Thibs was afforded the opportunity to see his project
through.

Kidd DIDN'T HAVE HIS HIGHEST DRAFT PICK and second best
player on HIS TEAM.

Now it's in the open that the team was lying about his
broken relationships with players.

If you just admit that it was unfair now, then it's all
good, I won't judge you

But don't keep doing this.

Kidd inherited a 15-67 team, and Giannis, who is
one of the great projects in NBA history.

(He'll end his career the greatest project success

It's really not that uncommon

>jk. Care to answer my questions though?

The superstar player, and the teams' biggest star since
Kareem, openly and aggressively supported Kidd.

With that having leaked and ruined the PR smear campaign,
they then leaked a story about Kidd not getting along with
the second best player (and other potential future star).
Jabari Parker.

So that means two of most promising pieces of the team
had nothing to do with the firing.

It was a smear campaign, and it's failing.
