Jason Kidd was officially named the Brooklyn Nets' new head coach on Wednesday. What's one of his first assignments? He had to name his hypothetical all-time starting five for "The Dan Patrick Show":
But why no mention of LeBron James, J. Kidd?
Lebron…I mean I could play him at (center). Listen, Hakeem [Olajuwon, who Patrick would start over Shaq] is not bad and I’m leaving LeBron off right now. Those are two Hall of Fame guys and you can easily say they’re the best at their position.
It's kind of iffy that he wouldn't start the best player in the game right now, but it isn't first time a (future) hall of famer slept on LeBron. Last week, Dennis Rodman said James would be just an average player if he played 20 years ago. Earlier this year, Jordan himself stated he wouldn't be as great in his era.
Damn, no love for Bron Bron.
