Just 10 days after officially retiring from the Knicks with two years and more than $6 million left on his contract, Jason Kidd has jumped ship and become the head coach of the crosstown rival Brooklyn Nets.
The addition of the 10-time NBA All-Star — arguably the greatest Net in NBA history (Dr. J. played in the ABA) — should certainly spice up the Knicks-Nets rivalry.
“I think it’s a great rivalry,” Kidd said Thursday at his introductory press conference at Barclays Center. “It’s great for the city, for the people that live here and so hopefully Brooklyn has the upper hand at the end of the day.”
