In addition to what Isiah Thomas said to Jason Kidd, a member of the Hall of Famer, he had to say something good.
Thomas believes that Kidd, currently an assistant to the Los Angeles Lakers, is special.
“When you talk about observation and participation. From a participation point of view, Jason Kidd’s talent lies in his understanding of offense and defense, because he has to analyze and fight before he can successfully understand his own insights.
Therefore, there is no excuse that Jason Kidd did not fight and defeat him. This way he knows where the weakness of every defense the coach is facing is, and he can tell the players: “This is what you want, this is the vacant position,” Thomas told Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson of Heavy.com.
Kidd won the NBA championship as a player (Dallas Mavericks, 2011) and coach (2020).
