Just one week after retiring from the NBA, the Brooklyn Nets have named Jason Kidd the team’s next head coach. That means Kidd will be coaching players that he played against this season, which will surely add an interesting dynamic to the team meetings. As soon as the news broke, everyone seemed to have their own opinion of the news, so we searched through Twitter to see what some of the fans were saying.
Here is their reaction:
I wish I could get a job like Jason Kidd: I have no previous experience, but I see you have an opening. I will allow you to give me said job

Jason Kidd coaching the nets is like graduating high school and going back to teach the next school year
