Jason Kidd will be in the Hall of Fame one day, but like many other players still in the NBA, his best days are now behind him. The 8-time All-Star has seen his ppg decline steadily over the past 7 seasons and though still an excellent rebounding guard, his rebounding has dropped each of the last 4 seasons.
Perhaps Kidd’s skills haven’t diminished, but clearly his physical abilities have. That’s why I’m puzzled by this move by Mark Cuban. The 36-year-old Kidd is not getting any younger and his performance on the court drops with the pass of each year.
The Dallas Mavericks are a ‘middle of the pack’ Western Conference team and judging by the acquisitions, or lack there of, they’ve made thus far this off season they will remain mediocre. I love Jason Kidd as much as the next man, but the Mavs would have been better off letting the Knicks have him.
With their current roster, Dallas is not a contender, unless Cuban works magic during the summer, we’ll see, but it doesn’t look good for the Mavs.
