Jason Kidd says he is nervous and excited about coaching the Brooklyn Nets.
The Nets have their highest expectations since Kidd played for them, and their ability to meet them could depend on whether he can have the same impact as a coach as he did as a player after arriving in 2001.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve always called certain players by their nicknames. But the thing is, it was always just that. A nickname. Reportedly though, it could now be...
So long, James, Allen, Pierce and Garnett.
At least for one game, King James, Jesus Shuttlesworth, The Truth and KG may be headed to the backs of NBA jerseys.
Some members of the Miami Heat have been told the NBA is considering having them and the Brooklyn Nets wear ''nickname jerseys'' in at least one of their four matchups this season. The NBA has not announced...
In yesterday's Boston Globe Gary Washburn shared some quotes from Paul Pierce about what his plans are for life after basketball:
“Ultimately, what I would like to do is have a business in Boston. Maybe like a sports bar. I would love to do something like that here. None of the former Celtic great players have come and done that. I thought about it, and why hasn’t anyone...
