Old Man Kidd vs Young Studs

No rest for the old and weary in the early stages of the NBA season: “The Mavericks have entered the embryonic stage of forming a defensive presence. Now the hard part starts. Starting tonight against Utah’s Deron Williams, they face the two toughest, most offensive-minded point guards in the league in a 24-hour span. On Wednesday, they visit Chris Paul and the New Orleans Hornets. ‘For J-Kidd, the one thing I love about these two games is that he’ll take the personal challenge,’ assistant coach Darrell Armstrong said Monday. ‘He looks forward to it. They’re probably the two top point guards in the league – after J-Kidd. I guarantee you he’s looking forward to that challenge.”‘

    Jason Kidd’s still the best in the game?

    “After jkidd” hilarious

  • Jo-Jo Baby

    Kidd still gets it done, basketball wise. Stats are not really an indicator of what he brings.

    Man, I hope J-Kidd gets a ring before he’s done…

    Somebody with decent ball knowledge
    How would kidd fare in the triangle?

  • Renato

    I honestly don’t believe Kidd would perform well in a triangle based offense .

    Jason needs the ball in his hands to be effective and crafty: triangle is more based on In&Outs and the jump shot is maybe the worse aspect of kidd’s game

    Kidd wouldn’t fare as well in the triangle as he does with more of a “free-lance” approach to offense, mind you he’s such a great PG that he would make it work to his strengths. Two areas it would work in his favour would be posting up and offensive rebounding. PLUS: it depends who he is playing with – it would take too long to break down if the entire MAVS unit switched to a “triangle offense”…GREAT QUESTION though chaps!

    I LOVE how Darrell Armstrong failed to mention Nash.

    or Rajon Rondo for that matter.
