No acting like a Kidd

Jason Kidd dropped more than a soda in an attempt to delay a game. He ended up dropping $50,000 for the stunt. The NBA fined the Brooklyn Nets coach on Thursday, saying he intentionally spilled his drink on the court as an unusual stall tactic. Kidd bumped into Brooklyn reserve Tyshawn Taylor with 8.3 seconds left in the Nets’ 99-94 loss to the Lakers on Wednesday, causing his drink to spill. A video of the fumble showed Kidd appearing to tell Taylor to “hit me” as the guard walked toward the bench, and the resulting delay while the floor was being cleaned allowed the Nets, who were out of timeouts, to diagram a play. Kidd denied any intent after the game, joking that he had “sweaty palms” and was “never good with the ball. – Associated Press
