Brooklyn Nets & New York Knicks 'stink' - Jason Kidd

Published Add your comment

Jason Kidd has publicly blasted his own franchise - the Brooklyn Nets - and former side the New York Knicks, reports ESPN.

Both franchises have struggled this season - leaving both Kidd and Knicks head coach Mike Woodson under severe pressure to pick up the win on Thursday night.

Kidd's side have won just five of their opening 13 games, while the Knicks are currently on a nine-game losing streak.

Former Knicks coach Kidd said that his side's upcoming game has an added importance because of the rivalry and that fact that 'both teams stink'.

"The one thing is we have to find a way to get better," said Kidd.

"It starts tomorrow for us. We have to find some answers as to why we go our separate ways instead of staying as a team. So we'll figure that out, and again, we have to find a way to protect home."

Woodson will be under severe pressure if his side fails to pick up a result against their arch-rivals at the Barclays Center.

The New York Post believe former Knicks head coach Jeff Van Gundy could take over from the under-fire Woodson, if he fails to steer his side away from the foot of the Eastern Conference.
