Is Jason Kidd's Job Really Secure?

Updated: December 8, 2013



Through this horrible season that we are all living through with the Brooklyn Nets it seems that rookie head coach Jason Kidd is taking the brunt of the blame so far.

Should he be taking ALL the blame and be worried about is job a mere 20 games in?

I have been unwavering in my support for Kidd this season and will continue on that path until I see him coach the real team without all of the injuries and then judge his performance.

I go back and forth on Twitter with Nets fans that want him gone and say it is all his fault because he doesn’t scream and yell all game long.  STOPJason Kidd with hand on mouth during game frustrated

Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News said it perfectly.

[quote_box]Kidd isn’t in as much trouble as you’d think. The Nets don’t believe they’ll get an accurate picture of what he can do as a coach until they’ve got their full complement of players.

That means the clock isn’t ticking on him until after Deron Williams comes back and starts playing regularly.[/quote_box]


That is simple common sense from Nets ownership.

There can be no panic 20 games into the initial season of a rookie coach playing with a depleted roster with no prior playing experience.

The consistent blowouts are alarming  and unacceptable with the talent on this team no matter how old the players are.

The horrendous home record (2-6) is worrisome as well but Nets management clearly wants to see the roster play together before jumping to quick decisions.

I just want to see DWill on the floor with this team for a month and then make my conclusions on the head coach.  Kirilenko would be nice too.
