Just what the Brooklyn Nets needed right? More drama.
But that’s what we have after the Nets fell to a disgustingly awful 3-10 on Sunday, good for the third worst record in the league. That lead to Kevin Garnett suggesting that he (and the team) were embarrassed and it also lead to head coach Jason Kidd taking a small shot at his starting five.
That didn’t sit well with forward Paul Pierce, who verbally fought back, suggesting that Kidd and the coaching staff aren’t making the necessary second-half adjustments:
“We got to understand teams aren’t going to play the same way they did in the first half as they did in the second half because teams make adjustments, especially when they are down,” Pierce said. “And we got to realize that and adjust with that.”
With a payroll large enough to support a third world country and a roster full of aging players, time isn’t on the side of the Nets.
Why the team felt placing a rookie coach (great a player as Jason Kidd was) with a handful of veterans was a good idea is beyond me, but clearly it’s not working and the sand is quickly pouring through the hourglass.
