Jason Kidd And The 5 Most Idiotic Head Coaches In The NBA

Jason Kidd And The 5 Most Idiotic Head Coaches In The NBA

Identifying the five worst head coaches in the league is not my favorite exercise, but Jason Kidd's stupidity forced my hand. It is hard to blame the former PG for wanting to coach Jabari Parker, though it is also fair to say that his exit was a little sloppy. Kidd will make this list as a result, and here are four other coaches on the hot seat this season.

Guilty until proven innocent: that is the way things will go for Steve Kerr this year, which I think is a fair deal considering his lack of experience. The former analyst was a clutch player back in his time, but that does not mean he is ready to be a head coach, one of the most highly scrutinized positions in sports, at the NBA level.

The Utah Jazz have a tougher task than most in the Western Conference because they clearly built up some bad habits last season. Maybe I am wrong. They clearly need a culture change in Utah, and Tyrone Corbin being released was clearly not a great sign for their future. He was bounced this spring, which was not entirely surprising.

Kidd makes this list mainly for the way he handled his business this summer. He did a decent job with the Nets, but not good enough to be considered for a front office position. He better enjoy coaching Jabari Parker for the time being, because the Milwaukee Bucks may handle him with a pretty short leash.

This slide saddens me to write, because Randy Wittman was able to get his players active on the defensive end last season. However, I am not sure that his job merited a contract extension, and hopefully the Washington Wizards can find a different guy to direct their offensive attack at some point. Sam Cassell?

I hated to put the Scott Brooks at the top of this list, but things have gone too far. The lack of offensive imagination for the Oklahoma City Thunder has been shocking, and the team as a whole needs to use Kevin Durant's talent more effectively. Brooks is doing his best, but it is just not enough.
