When Jason Kidd joined Los Angeles Lakers coach Frank Vogel’s staff in the summer, there was immediate speculation that the former NBA point guard was eying a bigger role with the team.
Kidd’s motives were questioned again Tuesday when he tweeted a photo of himself with some players from the Lakers, including LeBron James, Anthony Davis and Alex Caruso. The photo included a tiny shot of Vogel over Caruso's right shoulder.
“A new chapter of @Lakers basketball begins tonight,” Kidd tweeted ahead of the Lakers’ game against the Los Angeles Clippers.
NBA fans immediately came after Kidd for the post.
He was traded by the Nets to the Bucks after one season for two draft picks.
In four seasons with the Bucks, he was 139-152 and was fired during the 2017-18 season. He only led the Bucks to two playoff appearances in that span.
He then joined the Lakers in the offseason.
