HoopsHype Jason Kid rumors

October 4, 2013 Updates

Kidd’s a real roll of the dice, getting a team that isn’t thinking this is a two-year plan to unseat Miami. “This is the window, this season,” GM Billy King said over at Duke on Wednesday. But he thinks Kidd will make a successful transition, nonetheless, citing one factor primarily. “The key to being a good coach is you’ve got to be a leader and be able to convince 15 guys to follow you,” King said. “Not only 15 players, but also you’ve got to convince your coaches to follow and believe in you. The best asset Jason has always had is his leadership ability. Everywhere he’s gone, guys have followed him and they’ve won. It’s the same now.” New York Daily News
