#TBT: Jason Kidd to Kenyon Martin

A lob duo for the ages.
by October 16, 2014

After Shawn Kemp was dealt away from Gary Payton and the Sonics in ’97, the League needed a new dynamite ally-oop tandem. Jason Kidd and Kenyon Martin delivered.

Yes—watching the Nets was once considered not-so-bad, perhaps even enjoyable, long before they paid $9.4 trillion for a middle-of-the-pack team. Martin’s peak (years 2-4 in the L) non-coincidentally coincided with Jason Kidd’s first few years in New Jersey, and they were damn-near magical together.
