Default Delonte West eager to emulate Jason Kidd, again

ESPN Dallas reports:

Delonte West says the kids back in the day used to call him, "Little Kidd," because he tried to emulate the gifted point guard that's 10 years his elder. West even called himself "a poor man's Jason Kidd" when he arrived at training camp.

Now, West, who has started about 53 percent of the 350 games he's played over seven seasons with the Boston Celtics, Seattle SuperSonics, Cleveland Cavaliers and the Celtics again, said he's eager to begin his new role as Kidd's backup with the defending champion Dallas Mavericks.

"Iíve been a starter most of the years in my career. Being a backup guard on a title contending team or a starter, itís something thatís just become who Delonte West is," the heavily tattooed, 6-foot-4 guard out of St. Joseph's said. "You always see me pop up on a team like this, and itís for a reason. Itís not something that Iím running from. Starting minutes, backup minutes, spot minutes is what I built my career around.
