THIS IS 40
The 10-time All-Star hit the milestone birthday on March 23 and retired after the Knicks fell in the second round of the playoffs. On June 12 he was named coach of the Nets.
DAN PATRICK: Were you surprised you got the job so quickly after retiring?
JASON KIDD: I was a little surprised.
DP: Did you wow them with something like a PowerPoint presentation?
JK: No, no, no [laughs]. It was just me talking about basketball. That's something I've done my whole life.
DP: Can you yell at players?
JK: I'm not a screamer or a yeller. To get my point across is just to talk straightforward. I want my guys to understand that I want them all to be successful. I'm not the enemy. If things aren't going well, you can use that bench and get your point across fast.
DP: Have you been able to spend time with owner Mikhail Prokhorov?
