Jason Kidd tried to put his own imprint on the Brooklyn Nets, but found it difficult with the way Lawrence Frank carried himself.
Frank "wouldn't stop talking," said a source.
Frank also was angered that Kidd chose assistant Joe Prunty instead of him to coach the Nets during his suspension.
Kidd and Frank had a well-documented blowup.
"Sit the (bleep) down! I'm the coach of this (13-letter word) team! When you're on the bench, don't (bleeping) move!" said Kidd, according to a source.
