Milwaukee Bucks head coach Jason Kidd has a very young team. Getting everyone on the same page and keeping them motivated throughout difficult practices and prep sessions can be difficult for a coach that has a team lacking veteran leadership.  

With that in mind, Kidd is looking outside the box, and outside the sport, to keep the Bucks on point. 

Here's more from Inside Hoops: 

“Kidd brought in former San Francisco 49ers defensive back Ronnie Lott to talk to the team Wednesday. Lott was one of the most feared tacklers in NFL history and famously had his broken pinkie amputated in 1986 to avoid a long recovery process that would have been required with reconstructive surgery.

Kidd said Lott talked to the Bucks players about working as teammates and the privilege of being pro athletes.  

Lott won four Super Bowl titles in 10 years with the 49ers and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000. Lott also is a friend of one of the Bucks’ primary owners, Wes Edens.”
