Yahoo Sports reports that the NBA will fine Nets coach Jason Kidd for ordering his point guard Tyshawn Taylor to bump into him, spilling his drink and forcing a timeout to clean the mess up when the Nets were out of timeout Wednesday against the Lakers.
The NBA will fine Nets coach Jason Kidd $50,000 for his stunt with the dropped cup in loss to Lakers, league sources tell Yahoo.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) November 29, 2013
Kidd denied doing it on purpose after the game, but was pretty coy about it. Meanwhile, the Nets lost the game, dropping to 4-11 on the season. So his team is horrible, players are questioning his ability to make adjustments, his desperate attempt to influence the game failed, his team lost and he's out $50,000.
But hey, a bunch of people thought it was really neat that he tried to sneak in an extra timeout. So he's got that going for him.
