5 Reasons Why the Brooklyn Nets Should Be Glad Jason Kidd Forced His Way Out

5 Reasons Why the Brooklyn Nets Should Be Glad Jason Kidd Left

Jason Kidd made some strange news lately by demanding more roster control from the Brooklyn Nets. We all saw how that went, and now the former point guard is the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks. At the end of the day, the Nets will be better off without Kidd and happy to have a couple extra second-round draft picks for these five reasons.

You have to hand it to the size of Kidd's ego. He certainly thinks quite highly of himself, but turning the Milwaukee Bucks around is absolutely a job that will require a whole mound of confidence. It will also help to have a humble superstar like Jabari Parker to build the team around, and the bottom line is that other players in the NBA will want to play with the former Duke Blue Devil.

I think they can find a coach who is a better fit, and Lionel Hollins is not a bad backup option to be able to interview. Mark Jackson, Jeff Van Gundy and Patrick Ewing all come to mind as well. The Nets also have ties to a lot of coaches overseas, which should be interesting to keep an eye on after the recent hire of David Blatt.

They have a lot of veterans, so maybe the recipe for success would be finding a coach who has a more reliable track record, a better feel for strategy and a little less attitude. Hiring Kidd directly out of his playing career was a risky move. Something tells me they might choose more conservatively this time around.

It is kind of hard to sell a team on unity when you are the one looking out the back door the whole time. The Nets will do their best to pick up the pieces next year, but it is looking like the new head coach will have to undertake a massive rebuilding project for a team that was built to win last season.

I do not mean Usher, the entertainer, but he is quite a talented artist. I am talking about the Nets building a winning culture around their young players, because Kevin Garnett is not going to play basketball for much longer. His locker room influence is legendary, and one day he will have to pass the torch.
