“This is a great opportunity for me to do something I’ve done in my whole life and that’s play, but now go on the other side and put guys in a position to be successful,” Kidd said. “The energy was great, the effort was great and it was a lot of teaching going on this morning and there will be teaching tonight, but the guys did well.”

“It’s a little different being called ‘Coach,’ or looked upon as the head coach, that’ll take a little time,” Kidd said after practice at PNY Center. “I think we’ll get there and then be comfortable with that situation. Yeah, I was nervous because I care and I want to put guys in a position to be successful offensively and defensively.”[/quote_simple]
