    Life comes at you fast...last year he was a coach of the year candidate and one of the stated reasons for KD coming to Jersey, now he's gonezo.

    Jason Kidd most likely.

    I don't know if this is Durant and/or Kyrie or not but it's hard not to look at it that way. We heard nothing but positive things about the culture Atkinson created last year and now he's gone.

    Yesterday Lowe and Arnovitz talked about rumblings of a DeAndre Jordan issue. Apparently certain players didn't like the fact that he's coming off the bench and felt he should start over Jarrett Allen, even though Allen is the better player. They didn't name names but Jordan was obviously part of the package deal because he's close friends with Durant and Kyrie. Now this.....

    There's always some drama going on with the Nets.

    This is the first real drama we had in years, since THE trade.

    I saw that as well, I thought he was doing relatively well with the team. The Durant/Irving correlation to this is not that far fetched.

    Atkinson will thrive on a young team where the players don't call the shots.
