Jason Kidd Admits Spilled Drink StuntBy Marhgil Macuha on Dec 1, 2013 in Basketball, Sports •
Brooklyn Nets‘ coach Jason Kidd finally admitted that the “spilled drink stunt” was done on purpose as he attempted to beat the Los Angeles Lakers on their game on Wednesday.
NBA reviewed the video and Kidd was fined $50,000 for the stunt.
“The league fined me for something that I probably shouldn’t have done,” Kidd was quoted as saying by ESPN. “We’ll move on.”
“It’s about trying to win and those guys in that locker room, and I tried to put those guys in a position to get a basket, a good look and we did,” Kidd reportedly said.
Reactions on the stunt vary. Some think it’s cool while others don’t like it.
“I don’t think that’s very savvy or cool,” Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni was quoted as saying by the Los Angeles Times.
Meanwhile, Warriors forward Andre Iguodala tweeted, “If I ever become a coach, I’m using that drink spill trick.”
