Jason Kidd forced a coup with the Milwaukee Bucks that resulted in the dismissal of then incumbent Head Coach Larry Drew. The whole saga reflected poorly on Kidd, as his actions were extremely frowned upon in the NBA coaching fraternity. It also was a black eye for the Bucks organization, who gave us all the corporate spin you would expect when hiring someone with a past as checkered as Kidd’s.
But that’s the beer stein half-empty view of Milwaukee leadership upheaval. You can can also take the Milwaukee’s beer stein is half-full approach. Kidd does add a big brand name to a franchise desperately in need of relevancy and star power.Follow paulmbanks
