Nets' Kidd, Johnson praise fired Knicks coach Woodson

Two of Mike Woodson's former players expressed well wishes for the canned coach, including rival coach Jason Kidd, who was a key ingredient to Knicks' 54-win season last year. "That's a part of the job and it's unfortunate," Kidd said.

Jason Kidd on golf, meditation, Vin Diesel and the possibility of Shaun Livingston running for president

Lenn Robbins, who covers the Nets for BrooklynNets.com, sat down with head coach Jason Kidd to talk about all things everything. Really. They talked about everything. Robbins asked Kidd some fun questions, asking about what movies he likes -- '300,' 'Gladiator' and 'Shooter' -- what kind of music he listens to -- R&B, rap and meditation music -- and what kind of food he likes most -- sushi and fish. He also talks a lot of hoops with Robbins, noting the highs and lows of the season, the development of Mason Plumlee and the leadership from Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Robbins also asked him...

ASK IRA: Did Kidd and Nets disrespect Raptors, Heat by tanking?

Q: Not only did Jason Kidd throw soda on the court to get a timeout this season, he coached his team into tanking a few games at the end of the season. I hope the Heat send the Nets packing this season. I hope The Big Three are taking note, because Kidd and the Nets (Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Company) are basically sending a message that they want to play the Heat. Mason Plumlee, I think LeBron will block a few of your shots! -- Stuart.

Will Jason Kidd shave his beard for the playoffs??

Will Jason Kidd shave his beard for the playoffs??

Jason Kidd first started growing his (salt-and-pepper) beard at the beginning of January, perhaps to change his luck, or, some might suggest, to hide his identity.  After all, at that point, the Nets were 10-21. On Monday, Kidd said he's considering shaving. "I don’t do well with things for a long time," Kidd said on ESPN Radio "So it’s time to go back with a younger look, I think." It's hard to tell how serious Kidd was with Michael Kay, but there's been no suggestion he will go back to wearing ties. Since he stopped on New Year's weekend, the Nets have gone 34-15 with the head coach...

Starting Five: To shave, or not to shave?

Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd told ESPN NY 98.7 FM's Michael Kay and Don La Greca on Monday that he was contemplating shaving his beard. “I don’t do well with things for a long time,” Kidd said. “So it’s time to go back with a younger look, I think.” Seems like Kidd is messing with fire here. After all, the Nets have compiled the fifth-best record in the NBA since Jan. 1 (34-15) -- which coincided with Kidd's decision to stop wearing ties and stop shaving.

Kidd on Knicks: I was small piece of puzzle

Ask anybody why the 2013-14 New York Knicks failed, and they'll say the same thing: The Knicks missed Jason Kidd. Sure, they missed other veterans, too. But it was Kidd who stabilized them, who led them, who enabled them to get off to such a great start in 2012-13. Listen to the complete Jason Kidd interview: Yet when told of this on ESPN NY 98.7 FM's "The Michael Kay Show" on Monday, Kidd, now the rookie head coach of the playoff-bound Brooklyn Nets, politely disagreed.

Pregame notes: Nets vs. Magic

NEW YORK -- Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd would like to play all three of his centers -- Kevin Garnett, Andray Blatche and Mason Plumlee -- in the playoffs. But Kidd realizes that there could be an odd man out. “There’s 48 minutes. I don’t know if I can play all three of them. but we’ll try to play all three,” Kidd said. “But coming up on the playoffs -- especially with the first round, the way it’s spread out -- KG has a little bit more rest, so we’ll see.

Kidd also said that Andray Blatche, who missed the last two games with an...

Starting Five: Where do Nets stand?

Some Thursday morning thoughts on the Brooklyn Nets following Wednesday night’s 115-111 loss to the Orlando Magic: • If there was one good thing that came out of it, it was Kevin Garnett asking coach Jason Kidd if he could enter the game in the fourth quarter. Kidd, clearly wanting to take precaution, said no. But Garnett was really solid in his 17 minutes, scoring five points, grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out a season-high six assists.

Nets winning ways have pundits taking new look at team's possibilities

The Nets big win over the Heat was just the latest success for Brooklyn, but it was a signature one ... and because of the high drama of the close, it's become a touchstone for pundits and analysts to take a second, longer look at the team's possibilities. In the latest analysis, Brett Koremenos of Grantland and Beckley Mason of the Times focus mainily on Jason Kidd's recasting of the Nets offense (although both barely mention the Nets head coach.) Flexibility and depth are the big reasons, both argue, for the team's post-January 1 surge ... and both think the Nets have some real potential...

Nets could get KG back in Philly

NEW YORK -- Sounds like Kevin Garnett is going to return to the Brooklyn Nets’ lineup on Saturday night in Philadelphia. While Jason Kidd wouldn’t fully commit to it, the Nets' coach sure seemed optimistic about the possibility. “[Kevin] felt better today,” Kidd said Friday night following his team’s 15th consecutive home victory. “We’ll see how his plane ride goes, and then we’ll see in the morning how he feels.
