A woman in the first row of last night’s game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors surely thinks so. As Jason Kidd reprimands a referee for being assessed a technical foul, watch the fan react to his antagonistic words with hilarious amusement. Read More »

Mason Plumlee, Lionel Hollins

After becoming a state champion in his native Indiana during his high school career, and spending four years at Duke under coach Mike Krzyzewski, seven footer Mason Plumlee found it simple to blend in with a Brooklyn Nets team last year with very real aspirations beyond the first round of the playoffs.

Jason Kidd, Giannis Antetokounmpo

Earlier this week Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov sounded off on his former coach Jason Kidd in a highly entertaining chat with reporters. The Russian tycoon relayed the proverb, “Don’t let the door hit you where the good Lord split you,” and said, “I think we should get even,” after Kidd left Brooklyn in the lurch to sign a three-year, $15 million contract to coach the Bucks this summer. When Kidd was told about the comments, he had a pretty funny rebuttal: a one-on-one showdown between the two. Read More »

Jason Kidd’s Brooklyn Nets, apparently, weren’t among them. Read More »
