Default Magic johnson ...JKIDDDDD

Lakers minority owner Magic Johnson sat in the first row at the Meadowlands on Monday night and it's unclear if he was scouting Jason Kidd for Jerry Buss. During the All-Star Break, when talks with the Lakers heated up, Kidd sounded upbeat about playing for the Lakers, raising speculation he initiated the talks.


it was soooo close to happening in feb, quote jkidd "i thought i would be a laker in the morning"

maybe or he's just being a fan of the game but it would be nice to have kidd at the point and it would add depth to the point guard position, w/farmar coming off the bench

Scouting Kidd? Yeah, Kidd definitely requires scouting, you just don't know what you're going to get. Can that guy shoot? Is he a SF?

Let us know please. There are so many questons regarding Kidd, he's such an unknown player that no one knows anything about.

Yeah, I'm sure Magic was scouting him. Makes all the sense, doesn't it?

Scouting is the word teams use when they want a player to know they are interested in him... otherwise it would be tampering...lol

Is it not possible that Magic just wanted to watch the game? Oh yeah, that does not make a good headline for the gossip column! :

you guys can lol all you want but scouting kidd is not unreasonable, he's 34 and if the lakers were to be looking into aquiring him it's not a bad idea to look him over in an actual game setting and see how he's holding up... and what better person to scout a pg than Magic... it also serves as a notice to Kidd and the Nets that the Lakers are serious and since they can't actually talk or contact kidd it's the only way to make their intentions known...

If we go after Kidd, then I hope we get the "old man with bum knees discount"

actually he doesn't play like an old man with bad knees, the guy has missed less than 40 games in the last 5 years and has played 80 games the last two years... he's looking like an iron man for a guy his age

OK. but he's still an old man.

yeah he is but i'd venture that he's still got some time left in that old mans body, barring injuries he's probably got two years at the level he's at now...

u guys dont realize that he isnt a vince carter type player a player relying immensely on his physical talents, pg like him get a lil slower but make up with geting a lil smarter which pays dividends

he rebounds
plays good D
is shooting better from 3 [40%+ in playoffs ]
leadership on and off the court
makes players around him ALOT better [maybe he will actually help odom reach his potential]

also our suns-lakers budding rivalry will be crazy jkidd locking up nash, going at it against eachother ast to ast..

if u look at i think it was game 4 when they were down 1 and they set vince to make the last play and he lost it.. with kobe when it comes that close its as if we already won

they wanted bynum so badly back in feb? ok we give them bynum+ fillers

bynum didnt do anything for us down the stretch last year, think how good we were last year, in the end and especialy wen we were healthy and 26-13 beeting spurs twice mavs phx uta all once... and then add a hof pg who is still in his game
