(Jason) Kidd held court for nearly 10 minutes in front of a throng of reporters and couldn’t help himself when asked why he has mentioned multiple times in recent weeks that he has referred to reports that his job was in jeopardy last December as motivation for his departure.

“I think it really helped me to see what I was dealing with, what type of people I was dealing with, you know?” Kidd said. “To give me a fair chance to coach a team that had injuries, we make a big trade … but I think understanding that they did want to fire me in December, so it just shows what type of people I was dealing with.”

Kidd was clearly referring to Nets general manager Billy King, who Kidd wanted to supplant when he went to ownership in his failed power play to take control of basketball operations, a story first reported by The Post in late June.

If there was any doubt of that, though, Kidd made it clear when he was asked directly about King.

“Well, he’s management, so my relationship with Billy was to figure out how to get things right when he was around,” Kidd said. “There was really no relationship.”
