Slumping Bucks fire coach Kidd after two playoff seasons



The Milwaukee Bucks considered firing head coach Jason Kidd as early as past year because of his "old-school approach", according to a Tuesday report from Jared Zwerling of Sports Illustrated.

Seeking change amid midseason struggles, the Milwaukee Bucks fired coach Jason Kidd on Monday after a slide that left a team with designs on challenging the NBA's best in eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Under Kidd, the Bucks had a regular-season record of 139-152. Phoenix faces off next against the Pacers Thursday night in Indianapolis.

The Bucks are in the market for a new head coach.

Assistant Joe Prunty was promoted to replace Kidd for the rest of the year.

If this public opening becomes a success for Amazon , supermarkets around the world can begin to fear Amazon's next big move. The store sells grocery essentials along with ready-to-eat meals and meal kits that can be made at home, the website noted.

Of course, it'll be fun to speculate about the next full time head coach, as many have noted the position could be the most sought after in the league come summer.

The Bucks started slow, then used a 24-10 in the first quarter to get back in the game that was tied at 53 at halftime.

Kidd said he was officially informed he'd been fired about 15 minutes later when he met with general manager Jon Horst and team president Peter Feigin at a pizza restaurant.

Pitino posted a 102-146 record with the Celtics as the coach and team president before resigning during the 2000-01 season. He's obviously, in addition to being an incredibly talented basketball player, he's a very fine young man. That may have played a part in Antetokounmpo telling Kidd, "this isn't right, what they're about to do".

The chemistry and solidarity this team has built over the years will be paramount in getting through this rocky patch. Milwaukee entered the season believing it could compete with the conference's elite, and team officials were frustrated by the recent downturn, sources familiar with the situation told Yahoo Sports, believing the team was playing well below its talent level. The challenge for the Bucks is to not mess up this opportunity, with one of the only potential all-time greats this team has ever had and the clock ticking on building a victor.

For a 23-year-old who's still only spent fewer than five years here in America, it was only natural to become attached to an all-time great player like Kidd.

"You can even look at somebody like Marshall Plumlee.

We understand that it's going to take us as a group collectively", Bucks guard Jason Terry said (ESPN).
