Jason Kidd is a desperate man right now. His plan didn't help the Nets cause against the Lakers Wednesday night. They lost in Brooklyn 99-94, and the Nets are 4-11 on the year.
"Cup slipped out of my hand while I was getting Ty," Kidd said of "Cupgate." "Sweaty palms. I was never good with the ball.
"In the heat of the battle, you're trying to get guys in and out of the game, and the cup feel out of my hand."
Video replays appeared to show Kidd saying "Hit me," something Taylor flatly denied.
Said Taylor: "No [Kidd didn't say that]. I wasn't paying attention. I just kind of bumped him. I didn't even know he was holding [anything]. [But] coach was drinking a soda on the sideline. I was like, 'What's he doing?'
Kidd might be the first coach to get fined for flopping.
