Am I crazy for thinking, now that the Nets are getting Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, that they would be better off with Lawrence Frank as head coach and Jason Kidd as the assistant? If Brooklyn is dead set on contending immediately, why take a chance on a coach with no experience running a team? And Kidd could make a good buffer for Frank’s demanding and sometimes off-putting style.

Of course, if the Nets wanted an established head coach, they can do better than Frank, anyway. But on this staff, maybe roles should reversed.
