Kidd On Woodson: One Of The 'Great Coaches' I've Played For

Former Knick Jason Kidd is making a transition into the unknown. He becomes the new leader of the cross-town Nets, going, as he said “from one of the oldest players in the league to now a rookie head coach.”

After saying at yesterday’s introductory press conference that there is “a lot of work to be done” and that “he’s up for that challenge,” he told KnicksNow that he's hopeful that his time with the Knicks under Coach Mike Woodson will help him along the way:

"Woody's a great coach. You look at his offense, his ability to execute plays out of the timeouts, he's one of the best in the league. I've been very fortunate in my career to play for four or five great coaches that I can take little things from and maybe create them into my own."
