Kidd to Dallas

19 posts in this topic

Dallas and the Nets have traded Kidd to the Mavs for Devin Harris, Jerry Stackhouse, and $$$$...there might be more involved but what do you think of the trade......Personaly I love the West stacking up for the 2nd half of the season......I think this could help the Mavs and the Nets so I guess I like the trade.......

Jason Kidd IMO is the best point guard out there. Triple-double threat every night. This might end up being good for both teams.

Works out well for both teams. Devin Harris is pretty talented, but for Kidd you have to give something up.

Dallas had to try something. They've got a huge mental block for always being so good but never getting over the hump, especially when they were supposed to win it all last year, or the year before when Miami won it all.

WHOAH! there young man!... grin.gif

I'm pretty sure Steve Nash is the best point guard out there.

It is tough to aurgue with Kidd being the best for sure I just think his age has caught up with him a bit.

What a trade for Dallas they are back in the hunt for sure now.

New Jersey got alot more for a 35 year old about to call it a career than the Pups did for Garnett who is in the prime of his career. McHale needs to go.

IMO, i believe that Kidd is the best point guard in the game. The man does everything for his team, and when crush time hits, i want to ball in his hands.

zamboni, you may be right...but im not sure, i really do like big al and remember he still would be in college, if he becomes a better defender and passer he will become something really special. gomes might end up being decent too, but idk...telfair, he is too streaky..and gerald, i highly doubt he will be here for long(same can apply to telfair too)...but we still should fire mchale

Burnham- not only did they get 5 players, they also got $3 Mill in cash and most importantly- TWO future first round draft picks. If those turn into lottery picks, this will turn into one of the worst trades ever.

Devean George of Dallas blocked the trade.

Why would the Mavs give George a no trade clause? A role player at best should not get a no trade clause.

If it goes through it's going to be huge for Dallas. Goes to show if you are willing to spend you can get a good team out there.

From what I read George was in the last year of his contract and has Larry Bird rights, so he can protest the trade. I dunno, seems like he wanted to play for a winner, didn't want to get stuck in Jersey, etc. In the end everyone will remember why it didn't go through and it could be a career suicide kind of thing between GMs, fans, and the players around him that wanted Kidd. He'll be booed the rest of the season.

I'm sure he's just trying to get a better contract out of the deal.

It will go through IMO.

I just heard that if George waived his Bird rights that he could lose 8-10 million dollars.

Why does everyone think this is good Dallas' way? In the short run- yes. But after Kidd retires in a year or two and they have no first round picks- no. NJ in the long run is the winner in this deal, and if Dallas would have been patient they could have used those players and those first round picks to build a team.

Dallas is looking to win now, thats why this is a good trade for them. New Jersey is looking to get younger, thats why its a good trade for them. Both teams will benefit if the trade goes through.

      I never got around to scouting it, wish I would have. I spent a lot of time in Dunes and other small WMA scattered in the 601 zone to take advantage of the unlimited antlerless harvest. I know there is some good duck hunting to be had in Sherburne too if I can get away from the idiots. That seems to be a difficult task when waterfowl hunting within a 20 mile radius of the metro.

      Lots of mayflies now.  Larvae were coming up two weeks ago and now good amounts of sheds on the water.  Fishing has been great for those willing to move around and find active fish.  Start looking to first reefs off islands and shorelines as fish are starting to move to them.  30ft for us was good. Leeches.  2-3ft snell.  Plain hook.  Caught quite a few yesterday.  Good size range.  Kabetogama

      Besides there's 3 nice ramps there. 1 on the west, 2 to the east of the bridge.

      Good pretty good. Went out from the northwest side I think Garrison. Made our way to eight mile was able to go full-throttle the majority of the way but when the waves got too big has lower down. My buddy went looking for a drift sock but couldn't find one so we used a five-gallon bucket which work fairly well glad we had at least that. Well we are drifting it was perfectly fine but a pain in the butt trying to motor back up through the big waves. Then after some time sitting out there I had enough of sitting on those big waves and told my buddy that we needed to get closer to shore. The right back was very slow going and wet. Started to get a little concerned when my bilge pump stopped working and the back of my boat started to fill up especially when I was finally able to give it more throttle man the back of the boat was full of water but we made it back I got a new bilge pump and everything was all good quite the experience but I'll be back there again with my boat. And good thing we had back when we did there was barely any gas left in the tank.
