Dallas Mavericks head man Jason Kidd has major respect for Boston Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla.

(via Dallas Mavericks):

“He’s one of the best coaches in this league. He’s gotten his team to the Finals, they play at a high rate, he understands his group. And so, when you talk about Joe, he’s done an incredible job. And it’s not easy, especially when you’re favored or you’re supposed to be somewhere, it puts a little bit more pressure. But I think he’s handled it well, his group plays at a high level, his group plays hard, and he’s one of the best coaches in the league. So for that, we’ve got our work cut out as a coaching staff. We gotta be better.”
