It's still early in the NBA season, and most certainly in Brooklyn Nets head coach Jason Kidd's coaching career, but it hasn't started very well for the former superstar point guard. With a wealth of experience and achievements behind him, many believed that Kidd would become a great NBA coach. However, some believed it was too soon and that the challenge that comes with the Brooklyn Nets would be one too difficult to figure out.

Recently, when asked about their bad form, Nets coach Kidd replied that it was "just bad coaching." With the talented roster he has and his limited coaching experience, it should be just that. The Nets have all of the tools for a successful season, but good things aren't always easy to come by. The form shown by the Miami Heat in recent years has only escalated what teams are expecting from their own season. It isn't too difficult for a talented team to make the playoffs, and from then it's good coaching that will take you the distance.

With Kidd and his assistants Lawrence Frank and John Welch, he should have enough knowledge to turn their form around and help them make the 2014 NBA playoffs. After adding Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to their roster, it's fair to say the Nets were expecting big things this season. All hope is not lost, and as all good coaches are in need of at first, Jason Kidd needs time. Here are five reasons why he will be a win for the Brooklyn Nets in the end.

Jason Kidd has done it all on the NBA court, so it'd be silly to think he couldn't transfer these skills to the management side of things. It may take time, but that knowledge will pay off and the Nets will reap the rewards.

They tried to get superstar LeBron James before he opted to join Miami, and surely they will try again. Whether the Nets improve this season or not, Jason Kidd will have plenty of money to spend on top caliber free agents like LeBron or Carmelo Anthony. He can really make this team his own if given some time.
