Updated: June 17, 2013

New Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd sat down with Steve Serby of the New York Post for a little Q&A this past weekend and some of the highlights are below.

Kidd had some interesting things to say but one thing that resonates is that he wants the Nets to be a “feisty group that plays hard and is fun to watch.”

Lets all hope that is exactly what he turns them into Nets fans.

Q: What won’t you tolerate as coach of the Brooklyn Nets?

A: Being late. Being on time is being early, kind of. If it’s 10 o’clock practice, just don’t show up at 9:55, then that means you’re late. Understanding that we were starting at 10, so you should be prepared. That’s something I’ve always had a problem with.

Q: The one trait you had that was the most important to your success was your ability to see things before they happened.

A: I would agree with that. It’s like watching a movie if you kinda can fast-forward and see what happens, that’s the way I played the game. I tried to fast-forward everything. Sometimes it worked. There were some nights that it was like, “He needs to push the pause button or just slow it down (chuckle).”

Q: When you played with the Nets, you had a rule that if a teammate was on the floor …

A: To pick him up.

Q: Former Nets coach Lawrence Frank.

A: The pit bull, a bulldog (smile). He’s a grinder. He’s a guy that is gonna pay attention to every detail, small or big, and so I would definitely take a lot from him.

Q: What would you want people to say about Jason Kidd’s Brooklyn Nets, after they watch your team play?

A: They play hard. They’re a feisty group, and it’s a ticket that I would love to buy for years to come because they’re a lot of fun to watch.[/quote_simple]
