With last year’s NBA champions not doing as hot as they played last season and players on the team ranking up careers lows in statistics. It maybe time for some Dallas Mavericks veterans to think of their future NBA plans. Dallas Mavericks’ veteran point guard Jason Kidd is one of those suffering from all time career lows. I think Kidd knows that his time as an elite NBA starter is almost at its end. In a recent interview with Hoopsworld.com, Kidd surprisingly mentions that he is open to making his return to the New Jersey Nets franchise where he spent 7 of his 17 seasons and play back up guard to Deron Williams.
Kidd also said that it would be great to back up New Jersey Nets guard Deron Williams. New Jersey is moving to a new stadium in Brooklyn next season.”I know he’ll play 40 minutes so I can give him an eight-minute break. Wherever he ends up- whether it’s in Brooklyn or Dallas- that franchise has a great point guard.”Kidd, a free agent after this season, told reporters that he’d like to stay in Dallas if he decides to play, or “he’d see” if an opportunity to join Brooklyn presented itself next year.
I always appreciate athletes that wanna go back to their old stomping grounds. I’m not sure how important getting another ring for Kidd is because staying in Dallas will definitely be a better opportunity for that reason alone.
