A former Team USA teammate of LeBron James, Kidd is commonly seen as one of the people who can help keep the Lakers’ star players accountable. While teams generally succeed offensively with James, the Lakers improved their offensive rating from 107.4 points per 100 possessions to 112.6.In his early ventures as a head coach, Kidd struggled with larger power dynamics: While he made the playoffs in a solo season in Brooklyn, he was traded away to the Bucks after reports surfaced that he wanted more of a hand in decision-making. He had some success in Milwaukee and helped develop Giannis Antetokounmpo, but the team plateaued in the middle of the standings. Milwaukee’s success atop the East in the last two years under Mike Budenholzer is often seen as an indictment of Kidd’s tenure.Past thorny incidents also trail Kidd: He pleaded guilty to spousal abuse in 2001, receiving a fine and anger management classes. He also pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated in 2012.Kidd has indicated throughout his stint with the Lakers that he’s learned a lot from being an assistant for the first time, and Vogel has repeatedly said that he and Kidd have worked well together.

As the top assistant on the West-leading Lakers with two previous stints with the Nets and Bucks under his belt, Kidd — a Hall of Fame point guard in his own right — naturally is a candidate to become a head coach again.Kidd was in the mix this season to become head coach of the Lakers, but ultimately was hired as an assistant under Frank Vogel. Some league observers were initially skeptical of the pairing — on the day Vogel was officially introduced, he was asked if he was concerned that Kidd could be a natural successor. But the Lakers seemed to iron out any intrigue early, helping the team to a 49-14 record before the season went on hiatus.
