Hey Garnett, I got news for you. No one likes to be told what to do, but sometimes it’s what happens. It looks like new head coach Jason Kidd is already bumping heads with new Net Kevin Garnett. The season is around the corner, better work that sh*t out now.
Report after the jump…
Brooklyn Nets power forward Kevin Garnett said his talk with first-year coach Jason Kidd about possibly not playing both games of back-to-back sets “didn’t go too well.”
“I’m just being honest,” Garnett said in front of several laughing reporters during a news conference Monday at the team’s media day. “But I understand what he’s saying. He’s just making sure I’m durable and can get through an entire 82-game season.
“So I’m totally understanding of what it is. … He’s looking to better me, so I’m gonna try to be receptive to that.”
Nothing has been finalized with respect to the issue, Garnett said.
“We’re still in wait-and-see mode,” Garnett said. “I just don’t want to be told anything. Hopefully I’ve earned the right to have an opinion in something that I’m doing. But more importantly, from a chemistry standpoint, I think it’s important for me to be out there with everybody, and I think it’ll speed the chemistry process up more quickly.”
