Jason Kidd was absolutely AMAZING on Friday night versus the Hawks. Kidd finished the game with 19 points, 17 assists, and 16 rebounds, good enough for his 104th career triple-double. The crafty veteran willed the Mavs to victory by dominating the 4th quarter and overtime, and picking up an unusual foul.
Here is the video of Mavs PG Jason Kidd running into Hawks Coach Mike Woodson.
Now, some say this was a dirty play, but I think most people would agree that it was just a very slick move by a smart, veteran, basketball player. At least that is how I see it. You can’t fault Kidd for trying to make something happen. The coach isn’t allowed to be on the court and Kidd made sure the referees saw that.
I think you could argue that Jason Kidd has benefitted from the trade better than any other Maverick. The guy is balling out of control right now and I love it.
