Bucks Twitter account accidentally celebrated Jason Kidd's firing

Bucks Vs Suns Preview: Starting Lineups, TV Time, Injuries 01/22/2018 Milwaukee Bucks: Offseason of 2019 will shape the team's future

Kidd arrived in Milwaukee in July 2015 under unusual circumstances, having essentially attempted a palace coup to take over basketball operations of the Brooklyn Nets after one year as coach - only to then bolt for Milwaukee when Nets ownership balked at his demands.

Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo has put up MVP numbers this season, but Milwaukee was struggled to maintain consistency and now sits at No. 8 in the Eastern Conference with a 23-22 record. The Bucks were considered an emerging force in the East at the start of the season.

Kidd's firing comes after the Bucks fell to eighth place in the Eastern Conference, a feat Milwaukee is surely not celebrating.

Bucks assistant Joe Prunty will serve as interim coach, beginning with their game against the Phoenix Suns on Monday night.

The team has a formidable young roster, led by All-Star starter Giannis Antetokounmpo, but the talent has not resulted in an upper-echelon team in the conference. Or maybe Jason Kidd's expense, but I don't think he's as anxious about balloons on the Bucks Twitter page as much as how he actually lost his job on Monday.

United States flu season is getting worse
Still, the CDC recommends that all people over the age of five get the shot to reduce the symptoms of the virus. During this year's flu season in Australia, the vaccine was only 10 percent effective.


"We appreciate everything that Jason has done for the Bucks organization, but we have chose to make a coaching change", Bucks GM Jon Horst said in a statement.

The Bucks are hoping to get Jabari Parker back from a left knee injury that has kept him out all season.

Milwaukee is 8-12 since going a season-high five games over.500 on December 9.

"We believe that making this change now is important for the organization and gives our players the best chance to reach their full potential this season and beyond", Horst said.
