It was a bit odd considering Kidd had not only played for Frank, but practically begged him to join his staff when Kidd took on the Nets job.
But the pressures of winning may have gotten to Kidd, who reportedly snapped on Frank and now we have a better idea of what went down according to David Aldridge of NBA.com:
And several outlets have reported Frank was angered that Kidd chose assistant Joe Prunty instead of him to coach the team in his absence while Kidd served his DUI suspension at the start of the regular season.
The denouement came in the now well-reported blowup Kidd had with Frank, where Kidd, according to a source, told Frank: “Sit the (bleep) down! I’m the coach of this (13-letter word) team! When you’re on the bench, don’t (bleeping) move!”
I don’t know about you, but combined with the losing and over expecting owner, that sounds like a fun working environment.
