Man, does the NBA's website ever suck! Compared to the NHL and NFL at least. The standings and stats have been the same for years (they did just make a new stats page but it's a case of too much of a good thing). You can't even sort by team stats in the standings...

I find the sight slow as hell too. The mobile site is even worse.

Kidd got L Frank reassigned. He's getting paid a million per year for 6 years. Hahaha

Quote:
NEW YORK -- Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd has reassigned Lawrence Frank to a reduced role and Frank will no longer sit on the bench as Kidd's lead assistant coach.

Multiple league sources told ESPN.com in recent weeks there was "friction" and a difference of philosophies between Kidd and Frank brewing since the start of the season.

Many figured Frank would be the perfect sounding board and mentor for Kidd in his first go-around as a coach. But sources maintain that Kidd and Frank's relationship changed at the start of the season with a difference of "agendas" affecting their working relationship. A breaking point was reached with this as the resolution.

"This is the decision that I had to make and we made it and we move on," Kidd told reporters before the Nets played the Denver Nuggets Tuesday night. "This is my decision in the sense of what I had to do. It's about basketball. That's it."

The Nets have decided not to try to pursue another veteran coach to take Frank's spot even though they came into the season believing Frank's presence was vital to help Kidd with the rare immediate transition from player to coach. One coaching source told ESPN.com that the Nets ultimately concluded -- as much as they want a coach at Kidd's side who's been around the block to "guide him" -- that this pairing would not work if Frank insisted on telling him "what to do."

Kidd said Frank has been reassigned "to doing daily reports" and that Frank will not be sitting on the bench or working practices moving forward. Kidd said he does not plan on adding another assistant.

"Just different philosophies," Kidd said of the move. "That's all. We'll figure out how to stop people [on defense]."

The move caught veteran point guard Shaun Livingston off guard.

"It's tough. Lawrence was obviously a voice, so that's the hardest part," Livingston said. "I don't think any of us saw this coming."

When the Nets hired Kidd to be a coach for the first time in his life, Kidd targeted Frank as his lead assistant. Frank, who was coach in Detroit for the previous two seasons, has a relationship with Kidd dating to his time as an assistant under Byron Scott on the New jersey Nets' coaching staff when the Nets went to back-to-back NBA Finals in 2002 and 2003.

Frank replaced Scott and was Kidd's coach from 2004 to 2008, ranking as the Nets' all-time leader in victories. Originally, Kidd had his coaching staff set up with Frank orchestrating the defense and assistant John Welch handling the offensive duties.

Kidd opened his first season serving a two-game suspension, with assistant coach Joe Prunty moving from behind the bench to serve as the team's interim coach. Frank and Welch remained in their defensive and offensive coordinator-like roles, respectively, ostensibly for continuity.

Brian Shaw knows how to utilize his roster to the fullest. Look how equally distributed the shots are on the box score.

To add insult to injury he is shooting 65% on almost 10 shot attempts.

The Heat tried winning on cruise control at the start. The Pistons did a good job of not giving up all of the lead. Jennings made a huge shot from way deep as the Heat got it to within 3, and then stripped Lebron a few possessions later as he went to the rim.

Victor Oladipo and Michael Carter Williams two rookies each with triple doubles tonight.

See what happens when you play your rookies?

That was a pretty good double OT game between the Sixers and Magic. Oladipo, Afflalo, MCW and Turner all played great. I just wished Casey would give JV and Ross minutes like Philly and the Magic are doing with their young guys.

Oladipo, MCW and Turner are all FAR better than Ross. That's a big reason why they play heavy minutes.

How long will Kidd be HC in Brooklyn?


Quote:
Adrian Wojnarowski ✔ @WojYahooNBA

Assistant coach Lawrence Frank, who Nets "reassigned," has a 6-year deal that averages over $1 million a year. Breakup had been building.
Quote:
Adrian Wojnarowski ✔ @WojYahooNBA
Kidd lost cool w/ Frank inside a coaching staff meeting in early November, league sources say, and partnership was soon doomed to this end.
Quote:
Bill Barnwell ✔ @billbarnwell

Jason Kidd is still a coach killer AS A HEAD COACH. You’ve gotta respect that commitment.
