Basketball players aren’t often compared to boxers, but that’s exactly what Bucks coach Jason Kidd did prior to his team’s game against the Thunder on Tuesday.
Kidd, a former NBA All-Star point guard, said Oklahoma City point guard Russell Westbrook is the “Mike Tyson of basketball” because of his style of play.
"When the jump ball [goes up], he is coming as Tyson did [in getting] off the stool,” Kidd told ESPN on Tuesday. “When the bell rings, he's coming for you. Whenever he's on the floor, he plays at one speed and that's fast and hard."
