It’s New Year’s resolution time. Here’s what prominent sports figures are (or should be) saying.
Kidd was introduced on Thursday as the new coach of the Brooklyn Nets, less than 24 hours after he was hired by the franchise that he led to its greatest NBA success.
Hello, Brooklyn. The Nets will introduce Kidd as their new head coach on Thursday at a 2 p.m. press conference at Barclays Center.
Kidd met with general manager Billy King on Monday and Shaw is expected to meet with the team Wednesday.
Brooklyn’s coaching search is “strongly pointing toward” Kidd after his meeting with team brass, the Post reported, adding that he’s “viewed as the leading candidate for the job.”
Kidd is interested in Brooklyn’ coaching position and plans to talk to the team this week, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Sunday.
“There’s a lot of different stuff I may have the opportunity to do,” Kidd said. “If I play, I plan on playing for the Knicks. I got to be honest with myself. I’m a young man. (But) I got to see if I could still mentally do the grind all over again.”
New York Knicks point guard Jason Kidd was arrested on a drunken-driving charge after police said he crashed his SUV into a telephone pole in the Hamptons on Sunday, days after signing with the Knicks.
The Los Angeles Lakers will have to pick on somebody their own size to make it to another Western Conference finals.

Shawn Marion had 10 of his 12 points in the fourth quarter, leading the Dallas Mavericks to a 99-83 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday.
