NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Nets went back to the future on Thursday.
Meet the new guy, Jason Kidd.
Less than two weeks after ending his long, All-Star career, Jason Kidd acknowledged he has “a lot to learn about coaching” Thursday as he took the Brooklyn Nets job despite having no experience leading a team from the bench.
Now a point guard who was all about assists in his 19 years on the court will be looking for a little help.
“Nervous,” the 40-year-old Kidd said when asked how he felt. “I’m a rookie. I go from being one of the oldest players in the league to now a rookie coach. I’m very excited about this challenge. We have a special opportunity to achieve a championship-caliber team.”
