Kidd is even described as a frequent patron of the water park food courts. “Kidd had an unhealthy obsession with water parks and would eat lunch at Pelican Cove Water park 4 days a week,” said former player Tyler Zeller. “It’s not that I don’t enjoy water parks, but when someone is screaming at you to be his human inner tube for every ride in the park, you start to wonder what this has to do with basketball.” Bucks forward Khris Middleton thought Coach Kidd’s water park infatuation was a plot to get at single moms. Turns out, his heart was actually pursuing something 50-feet tall, made out of plastic, shaped like a screw and capable of sending him into a vortex of aquatic thrills. He really was just there for the slides.
