The Milwaukee Bucks have parted way with Head Coach Jason Kidd after 4 years with the team. The Bucks are currently 24-22 and are the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference. For a team with so much talent — it was a surprise that they are only 2 games above .500, but it was shocking that they would fire their Head Coach halfway through the season.
It’s been reported that the news of Kidd’s firing has upset All-Star Forward Giannis Antetokounmpo. According to Ramona Shelburne, Giannis was willing to do whatever it took to keep Kidd.
It’s a head scratcher that the front office would make a move that wouldn’t have been okay’d by their teams best player.
The Bucks are a young team and it’s unfair to put all the blame on Kidd. With any young team, they must go through some growing pains.
Luckily for the Bucks, they’re about to get one of their leading scorers from last year back in Jabari Parker who averaged 20.1 PPG.
