wow

even the lakers with their storied history would retire kidds #

do they realise he was one of the best defensive players ever too?




while I agree that Kidd did more in Dallas than many here seem to remember, those two All Star appearances in his second Dallas run are kind of a joke.

The first was b/c he was voted in the East with the Nets. It may as well have been a lifetime achievement award.

The second was b/c a freak ice storm hit Dallas when we hosted the ASG causing a player (injury replacement I think) to be unable to make it in. Kidd just happened to be in town and was willing to play.
