Now this story is drama.

We all understood the reasoning behind Owner, Mark Cuban’s, intentions for “blowing up” his championship team. But indeed there were some pieces that he did want and intend on keeping aboard, Jason Kidd was one of them. As you know by now, Kidd signed with the Knicks during the offseason.

Cuban went on a local radio show and was asked about Kidd’s jersey being retired in Dallas and he had the following to say:

“I was more than upset….I thought he was coming (back). I was pissed….no chance”

“J-Kidd’s a big boy, he can do whatever he wants…..but you don’t change your mind like that. I’m sure I’ll get over it at some point, but as of right now, I wouldn’t put J-Kidd’s number in the rafters.”

“I like J-Kidd……he’s a good guy. But I just thought that was wrong. You can’t put a guy’s number in the rafters when he decides he doesn’t want to be there.”

Apparently J. Kidd had tried contacting Cuban before the NY deal had gone down but according to Cuban he didn’t answer his call because:  ”…I was in D.C. with my kids at a museum.”

Being a business man like Mark, you’d figure guy would pick up the phone when one of your stars is calling…..during free agency.
