Jason Kidd, Kevin Garnett call out Brooklyn Nets for poor effort

If you looked up ‘disappointing’ in the dictionary, you’d likely find a picture of the Brooklyn Nets’ logo next to it.

No NBA team has been more woeful – at least in regards to their expectations – than the Nets this season. Not even the crosstown Knicks.

Currently sitting at 9-19 and losers of four straight, head coach Jason Kidd allegedly lit into his team recently which was followed by a mini rant from power forward Kevin Garnett, also directed towards the roster:

According to league sources, after Kidd yelled at the team on Wednesday, Kevin Garnett stood up and vented his frustration before walking out to the showers. Multiple sources stressed Garnett backs Kidd and that the veteran’s frustration has been building over some of his teammates’ lack of fight after the Nets lost by 17 points for the second straight game.

Sources also said Garnett’s walking out was viewed as him being one of the few Nets to care about the team’s downward spiral.

The blowup was just one of many that have taken place in the Nets’ locker room this season and likely a number that will continue to grow barring a major turnaround.
