Jason Kidd Reportedly Told Lawrence Frank ‘When You’re On The Bench, Don’t F—ing Move’

Details from the fallout between Jason Kidd and former lead assistant Lawrence Frank have emerged. Kidd reportedly blew up on Frank in a coaches meeting in a profanity-driven blast, which included ordering Frank to “not f—ing move” when on the bench during games. Frank was very vocal and interactive early in the season, and that trend drastically diminished as the season moved along leading up to his demotion.

According to David Aldridge of NBA.com:

The denouement came in the now well-reported blowup Kidd had with Frank, where Kidd, according to a source, told Frank: “Sit the (bleep) down! I’m the coach of this (13-letter word) team! When you’re on the bench, don’t (bleeping) move!”

Frank did as he was told. Other coaches playing the Nets thought he was ill, he was so quiet during recent games.

    Wow, Kidd sounds like a bit of a tyrant doesn’t he? Wonder what his players think of him, I’m thinking it isn’t good, but I could be wrong. However, he is only a coach, not a King. Just sayen

    Same Kidd that took the lead in Byron Scott’s firing. The same A hole who beat his wife and drove while drunk.

    don’t give this (12-letter word) any power by continuing to write about him! he ended his playing career disgracefully and he’s beginning his coaching career (he won’t have one after this terrible year) the same way. disgusting human being!

    Kidd was somehow involved with some plot against his sisters, boyfriend or some such stuff? then the drunken night when he signed his contract, party fight drove drunk. not who i would hire as a coach.
