I have said it since they hired him, Kidd is a great basketball mind, but I don't think he has been put in a spot to succeed with the Nets. Too much pressure, players that will under-mind him and see him as a peer, and an assistant in Lawrence Frank that could probably do a better job. Kidd will end up shooting the Nets in the foot at some point this season... I can feel it.
