Jason Kidd Returns To Chorus Of Boos In Brooklyn
In Jason Kidd’s first game back in Brooklyn since leaving the Nets in June, fans welcomed him back with a chorus of boos Wednesday.
Kidd left this past summer to be the head coach for the Milwaukee Bucks, after the new Bucks owners (both New Yorkers) lured him to the Midwest. Kidd reportedly tried to leverage his power into getting more player/personnel control, and Nets management balked, which opened the door for him to exit.
Kevin Garnett told ESPN that he thought that Nets fans should greet him warmly.
”Obviously, he is someone that you went hard for, gave everything that you had for,” said Garnett, who waived his no-trade clause to be dealt to Brooklyn in part to play for Kidd. “It will be good to see him in the building. Hope people don’t forget that, what he has done for Brooklyn and New Jersey and over the years.”
“I think that sometimes we as fans forget and I think that’s important to remember the good,” Garnett continued. “Obviously, he is in another organization but don’t forget the good that he’s done for this organization and that is the message here.”
