The End is Near With Bucks and Jason Kidd
Last night after Bucks fell for the 10th time in 12 games, Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd did not meet with the media. Instead, John Hammond, Bucks General Manager, field the questions and said him and Kidd were having a ‘Basketball discussion.’ It’s become the new buzzword around town today. Is it possible that Kidd could be out of a job as soon as today? Or did Hammond give Kidd the final ultimatum to turn it around in the next few games?
Either way, it feels like Bucks are starting to distance themselves from Kidd. It makes sense too. He’s lost control of the team. There’s no real noticeable spirit to the bunch, and they seem content being down 15 points. Miami Heat game is a great example. Bucks came out the gates down 17-2 like they were some goddamn midmajor program playing Kentucky. Bucks never really had a spirited comeback before Jabari Parker’s knee injury, and when that happened, Bucks looked dejected which I understand completely.
We’ll see if today is the final day of Kidd’s coaching career for Bucks. It wouldn’t be a bad time to do with Milwaukee having three games in four days upcoming starting Friday with a winnable game versus Los Angeles Lakers. If Milwaukee can win the last three of four, which is doable, they would be at 25-31. Not perfect, but a step in the right direction.
