In the book, one ex-Bucks player calls Kidd’s coaching style, “psychological warfare.” Once excerpt made the social media rounds about Kidd practicing the Bucks on Christmas Day in ‘13, two days after a bad loss to the Charlotte Hornets. According to the book, Kidd changed his mind and held a practice on Dec. 25. It was a three-hour practice that was mostly conditioning and included extensive time in the pool even though most of the players did not know how to swim. There are other stories, too, including one where Kidd reportedly called out Giannis in front of the team only to be proven wrong. Kidd still kept Giannis on the bench.
