Nets owner discusses new coach Jason Kidd
“The point is that there are people who are born coaches,” Prokhorov said, according to the New York Times. “It is known that Jason Kidd was, in fact, a player-coach on many teams, and he has been training for a long time. He has played under many coaches, and he has always wanted to be a coach.”
Prokhorov also said Kidd becoming the Nets coach is good for the league, because it helps bring some star power to the sidelines — something he thinks the NBA is missing.
“Despite all the NBA’s competitive potential, they lack a little bit of star coaches,” he said. “Of course, we are very glad that now, together with our fans, we can grow up a new star and finally, naturally with the NBA [championship].”
