Will Jason Kidd be a bust with the Dallas Mavericks?

Winning in the NBA playoffs is never easy. The NBA champion needs to catch a few breaks and be the beneficiary of a few lucky bounces, but the Dallas Mavericks must make a few deep playoff runs under Jason Kidd for his tenure to be looked at as a success. If they fail to take a step forward or even regress, he will be labeled a bust.

The 48-year-old will also be looking to help Luka Doncic become the best player in the league, improve the team’s defense, and find a way to get Kristaps Porzingis back to his All-Star form. Can he accomplish those goals? It won’t be easy, but history suggests the players will improve under head coach Jason Kidd.

There will likely be an ugly exit because that is often how it goes for the Hall of Famer, but the time in between will be a success. Expect the Dallas Mavericks to make the playoffs this season and advance to the second round for the first time since winning the title in 2011.
