Kidd Feels No Sympathy for 0-18 Nets

Let’s just say that Jason, the former Net, has moved on: “It doesn’t pain me,’ Kidd said, after engineering the Mavericks’ 117-101 rout of the Nets, which set the record for most consecutive losses to start a season. ‘I wish those guys luck to turn this thing around. There were whispers this was coming. You could see it coming, but you know, they’re going to turn it around.’ Kidd, who played superbly (16 points, eight boards, 10 assists), is not obligated to be sympathetic. Actually, he implied that basketball is almost an afterthought in New Jersey nowadays – just as he suggested during the morning shootaround: ‘It’s unfortunate,’ he shrugged. ‘But you’ve got to play the games that are scheduled. They’re going through some changes on their side and they’ve just got to stay with it and stay positive. Things will turn eventually. They got a new owner maybe coming in. There’s talk of them going to Brooklyn, so there’s a whole lot of stuff that doesn’t even have to deal with basketball that they got in this streak.”’

    Sympathy? He had 5 steals. He was going for a quadruple double. Plus he was snickering on the bench with his face in the towel. He’s loving this

    @Nigel, Kidd got the best part of the deal

  • dma

    i think david stern should have the nets forfeit the rest of the games and just have a draft of their 15 players to the bottom teams for the remainder of the season.

    Sam Z: you couldn’t be more wrong. It’s not Rod Thorn’s fault, it’s Bruce Ratner’s.

  • nel-o

    why should kidd feel sorry? when he was first on the mavericks in the mid 90s they were really bad too

  • When I lose this gut I’m gonna cross you up

    Samz fails! But nowhere near as much as Jersey!

  • Robb

    Their fans have to understand this is a rebuilding process. New owner, new stadium, new team is coming. Be patient.

    Sam Z – it aint the PC thats bring out the retardation…

  • jay

    hey the nets traded kidd..why should he feel bad..you dont want to lose to a winless team..every team should bring their A game! that being said ratner or whomever should make a decision…move to brook-lon or move to the pru but being in limbo helps no one especially morale…it weighs on everyone and why would fans in nj support a team that may not be there at the end of the day!

    Damn, no sympathy for the nets? wow. He almost as cold blooded as Kobe with the ball in his hands with 5 seconds to go in a 1 point game

  • truthteller

    Jay-Z will turn this franchise around when he signs leBron next year!

  • http://www.another48minutes.com Gerard Himself

    Except Jay-Z won’t sign anyone, because there will be Russian who’s…. 25 times richer than Jay?
    But anyway, let’s hope the Nets will get some big names, yeah.
