Getting fired has to suck. Getting fired and having ESPN tell the world before being told yourself has to be the worst way to lose your job.
Imagine turning on the television and finding out you no longer have a job. That has to be the lowest of low feelings. I feel so bad for Kidd in this situation. I’m not a Bucks fan by any means, but nobody deserves to be fired like that.
It’s also tough for Kidd here because the Bucks were actually looking like they were headed in the right direction, and now he just lost his team. Just awful all the way around.
