Byron Scott says Jason Kidd was 'known as an a--hole'

Wednesday February 4th, 2015

Jason Kidd will coach against his former coach Byron Scott for the first time Wednesday when the Bucks take on the Lakers. Scott took a moment Wednesday to reminisce about Kidd.

"He was kind of known as an a--hole," Scott said, according to Bill Oram of the Orange County Register.

Rumor has it Kidd was the one who forced Scott out of New Jersey in 2004, but Scott wouldn't confirm whether that's true.

"That’s all I’ve heard," Scott said. "Now, did he actually go talk to Rod Thorn and all those guys? I don’t know. I never got that story. I always said, though, where there’s smoke there fire."

And then there was that whole thing that unfolded in Brooklyn this summer. So, yeah, people don't like Jason Kidd.
