Let's take a breath for 20 seconds of zen with Jason Kidd (speakers up):
After blowing yet another double-digit lead, the Nets fell to the Blazers in Brooklyn last night, with the soundtrack for much of the game—including for Paul Pierce's 2-of-12 return—cascading boos from the crowd. Frustration is all around for a team that's now last in a crappy Atlantic Division, and just 10 games into the season has already called the dreaded players-only meeting.
After the loss, Shaun Livingston said the fault lay with him for not "initiating the offense," which is noble but unnecessary, considering he's just about the only Net playing well. Coach Jason Kidd attempted to shoulder the blame as well.
