Things have clearly not going well for the Brooklyn Nets.
They made the biggest splash of the offseason, acquiring Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry from the Boston Celtics. They signed veteran Andrei Kirilenko to provide help off the bench. A year earlier, they re-signed Brook Lopez and Deron Williams and traded for Joe Johnson. Although the team was old, the Nets believe they put together one of the most talented groups in the league.
They then decided to bring in the just-retired Jason Kidd to coach the team.
Kidd has run into trouble since taking over. He purposely spilled a drink because he was out of timeouts, demoted his most respected assistant and the Nets have struggled to a 7-14 record.
One of his team’s leaders spoke on the struggles.
“November was a sh**ty year for us,” Garnett told Andy Vazquez of the New York Times while laughing. “A sh**ty month.They’re probably going to fine me for that. I don’t give a sh**.”
Garnett has never been one to mince words.
