HoopsHype David Thorpe rumors


November 15, 2013 Updates

In the latest episode of ESPN's TrueHoop TV, coach David Thorpe gives Jason Kidd about the most negative rating one could give a coach, squarely placing the blame for the Brooklyn Nets' early struggles on the team's new head coach. His exact words, when asked to rate Kidd: "He gets an F. He gets a 0. My wife could coach a team to a 29th ranking for that team. She doesn't know much about basketball. He just... his guys, I don't think they have any purpose and passion to what they're doing. I think they're discombobulated. Listen, Henry, he was an amazing player, one of my favorite of all time for a lot of different reasons, but our profession is different from his profession, and to assume that that transition is easy, it's a short bridge, is crazy. He has a long way to go to figure this out. Do I think he'll be better? Will they be better? It seems very likely. But as he's currently doing, he's the worst coach in the NBA." The Brooklyn Game
