Jason Kidd has been around long enough to get calls like the one he got late in the fourth quarter of the New York Knicks’ win over the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. Throughout his 18-year NBA career, Kidd has become a master at sticking his limbs out to draw a foul. With the game tied and about 25 seconds left to play in Brooklyn, Kidd drained a clutch three pointer and stuck his leg out to get a call against Jerry Stackhouse. The shot put the Knicks on top 100-97, and the foul could have been major if Kidd hit his free throw and gave the Knicks a two-possession lead. He missed, but the Knicks held on to win anyway. Kidd pulled a similar move against an opposing coach a couple years ago to draw a big call. The NBA is supposed to be cracking down on shooters sticking their legs out to draw a foul, but those rules can be slow for officials to adjust to. That is especially true when the one doing the kicking has been around forever.
