Giannis Antetokounmpo not happy over Jason Kidd firing

Recently the Milwaukee Bucks head coach, Jason Kidd, was fired due to the way he treated players. Kidd and the Bucks have had a few season of rockiness. Bad season and then some good season, controversy within the staff as well too. But mainly the reason for Kidd being fired was he way he treated his players. Reports say that Kidd used more of an old school approach to get his players to play right and the players didn’t take it the right way. One of his players, Giannis Antetokounmpo, was not happy at all about Jason Kidd being fired because he believes that Kidd was the reason for his success. He had some words to say for the press, “I was 19 when he came and he said he was going to put the ball in my hands. The first time I wasn’t ready. I told him, ‘Coach, I’m not ready to create and make plays for the team.’ He said, ‘OK, we’re going to take our time.’ The next year, he put the ball in my hands and I was ready. But coming from a guy like Jason Kidd is big. He’s going to end up, whatever, if he got fired or not he’s going to end up in the Hall of Fame. Having Jason Kidd as our coach was big.”

Under Kidd, Milwaukee had a regular-season record of 139-152, though the Bucks are considered a team on the rise, with a group of young stars including Antetokounmpo. So now where does that leave the Bucks for the last push to make the playoffs? We just have to watch and find out. Hopefully they can pull through and make the playoff with all the talent that they have on that team.
