Bucks management has decided enough is enough.  This team isn’t improving, isn’t playing hard all the time, isn’t winning consistently so the axe fell on the job of Jason Kidd. 

While Giannis wanted to show him support and even offered to help keep his job, the bottom line is if the Bucks were winning, he would still have a job.  On the opposite end of the spectrum, Jabrari Parker and Kidd haven’t spoken and have a completely “broken” relationship by many accounts. So while one player, albeit a burgeoning super star, has a loyal relationship the other has one that seems beyond repair and you can’t coach a divided team.

As far as Kidd finding out about his firing from the Bucks star player rather than management and ownership first……yeah, it’s a bad look but didn’t Kidd get his job in the same fashion when prior head coach Larry Drew was left holding the public embarrassment bag?  Kidd has zero room to complain.
