Nets Coach Kenny Atkinson Using ‘College Football Style’ Cue Cards Is Hilarious

 

Well, there’s a first time for everything.

Brooklyn Nets coach Kenny Atkinson has stolen some tactics from college football playbooks, so it seems. During the Nets’ win over the Rockets last night, he held up a sign that featured a photo of Dennis Scott with a cross out symbol over him.

Play cards featuring pictures of celebrities are common in college football, but are a first in the NBA.

After the game, Atkinson explained that he used the card to help communicate to the players to shift into a specific defensive coverage.

 

“It’s just a defensive coverage we have, and we’ve had trouble communicating it to guys in the past, so we came up with this idea. We have to find a way so everybody knows. It was a staff suggestion. There was a little humor behind it, but I liked it. Sometimes you have to add a little humor to things and it sinks in a little more with the guys.”
