The Milwaukee Bucks have fired their head coach Jason Kidd, the team announced on Monday. Kidd, who spent four seasons with the Bucks, will be replaced by assistant coach Joe Prunty.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Prunty is expected to be named the interim coach for Milwaukee.
Currently, the 8th seeded Bucks are 23-22. During his time with the Bucks, Kidd had a record of 139-152.
LaVar Ball believes that his son Lonzo Ball is going to be special in the NBA. He believes we have not seen anything like his son. “He’s a new breed. You ain’t seen nothing like him yet; that’s what I’m saying, ” Ball told Doug Gottlieb. “Y’all trying to compare him to everybody! You say Jason Kidd? Jason Kidd 6’4, my boy 6’7. My boy can jump; he (Kidd) can jump a little bit. He(Kidd) can’t jump like Zo. Lonzo longer, blocks more shots, so it’s different.”
If Lonzo Ball has half the career Jason Kidd had, LaVar should be happy. However, it is good to see a father out there supporting his son!
