5 Coaches Who Would Do a Better Job Than Jason Kidd for Brooklyn Nets
Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

When a team built to be a contender flops, blame usually falls on the guy on the sidelines. In the case of the Brooklyn Nets, it’s first-year head coach Jason Kidd who is taking the heat.

Kidd’s Nets reside in third place in the deep, dark abyss known as the Atlantic Division despite boasting the most expensive roster in NBA history.

Brooklyn’s management, spearheaded by audacious owner Mikhail Prokhorov, is unlikely to send Kidd packing just about a third of the way through the season. The Nets brazenly invested far too much money, confidence and pride in the rookie coach over the summer to call it quits this early.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported that Kidd is losing support from the locker room after such a poor start to the season, but made no mention of any backing, or lack thereof, from the team's ownership.

The following rankings are based on coaches' prior experience, superstar management (that means you, Deron Williams) and suitability with the Nets roster.
