Kidd’s Play: The rookie head coach had to establish who was running things with the Nets. Frank got the message.

Details of the JASON KIDD – LAWRENCE FRANK feud have emerged. According to reports, the Nets head coach allegedly blew up at his top assistant during a coaches meeting and ordered Frank not to “f–king move” while on the Nets bench during games. The dust up led to Frank’s demotion. This, according to NBA correspondent David Aldridge:

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!” Frank did as he was told. Other coaches playing the Nets thought he was ill, he was so quiet during recent games.

Frank, who at one time was the Nets head coach when Kidd was the starting point guard, had been highly interactive and vocal along the sidelines early on this season.


How do you bring in a guy (Frank) to be your top assistant to another guy (Kidd) he used to coach? A guy that used to be your head coach before you fired him? Nets GM Billy King needs to explain that one.

Then again, King needs to explain the Jason Kidd hiring as Nets head coach without any prior NBA coaching experience in the first place.

No wonder the Brooklyn Nets are a mess. Smh.
