When you first look at Jason Kidd you will probably think that he is the a true sweetheart and one of the most honest people in basketball. He has proven to be a great teammate and idol to many young bucks especially in the 90’s and early 00’s.
Well you thought wrong or was fooled at least. There is another side in the life of Kidd that the public noticed mostly in recent years. He was arrested for several domestic violence charges and unproven stories surround the Internet, which sound pretty amazing and unbelievable. There are statements that he chased his wife with a baseball bat and even smashed her head of the window of his car. This were probably some of the main reasons for the divorce.
His wife also contributed to this turbulent lifestyle as she had some pretty crazy moves on her own. One incident of that type is the situation back in 2006 when she forced her child to steal his daddy’s phone from the locker room just to check his messages and shout from the first row.
The newest scandal surrounding Jason is the feud with his assistant coach Lawrence Frank. He reportedly excessively used a 13 letter word. We will need to quote this just to bring the picture in whole:
Sit the (expletive) down! I’m the coach of this (13-letter word) team! When you’re on the bench, don’t (expletive) move…
You can fill in the gaps… I guess that Kidd is just not used to be surrounded with more experienced coaches than himself this early in his career.
