If it's private why is it being publicized?

Didn't see the game, but not scoring 80 points?
Should've started throwing chairs and gotten himself ejected

They're done. Even w/ a healthy team, they still sucked! 3 more years of mediocre bball. Even if you fire the coach they would still suck.

Didn't see the game......

Well.....in a nutshell.....and IMO.....the Nets gave up.

The Nets are doomed. Way over the cap and a roster filled with overpaid has been or injured players. Way to make an entry into the NY market....

Kidd clearly is not ready to coach in the NBA - that was mistake number one. Danny Ainge swindled the Nets in the Pierce and Garnett trade, they are done as NBA players. Deron Williams was and is a vastly over rated player. The Nets need to look to start rebuilding - but can't do so far a couple more seasons. Fans better hope they don't make more stupid trades giving away draft picks until the end of the next century.

How can you not mention Joe Johnson among the litany of Brooklyn f-ups?

Fire this Kidd!

good, good, give in to your hate....

Most likely is that players are giving up on the coach.
