It looks like getting your jersey raised into the rafters as a Dallas Maverick’s legend takes more than a few solid years and a championship. In this case, Mark Cuban, is preaching loyalty, and apparently Jason Kidd doesn’t fit the proverbial ”glass slipper”.

Mark Cuban says “no chance” the Mavs retire Jason Kidd’s number via ESPN Dallas/Fort Worth.

“I was more than upset,” Cuban said. “I thought he was coming. I was pissed. … “J. Kidd is a big boy; he can do whatever he wants. But you don’t change your mind like that. That was … yeah. I’m sure I’ll get over it at some point, but as of now, I wouldn’t put J. Kidd’s number in the rafters.”

The Mavericks owner and Shark Tank personality, Mark Cuban, seems a bit peeved with J-Kidd and his decision to ditch Dallas for the New York Knicks.

Cuban had said that Kidd’s decision “hurt my feelings” and Cuban’s recent lash towards the future hall of famer is undoubtedly an extension of his anger towards Kidd’s overall choice to leave the Mavs.

“He’s a good guy, but I just thought that was wrong,” Cuban said. “You can’t put a guy’s number in the rafters when he decides he doesn’t want to be there.”

Cuban feels played by Kidd during the off-season, claiming the point guard wasn’t straight forward about wanting to leave. Cuban went on to praise Jason Terry for being honest and up front about wanting to explore his options and even says that the likelihood of Terry’s jersey eventually reaching the rafters will be considered.

“Putting somebody up in the rafters, that’s something sacred in my mind,” Cuban said. “You don’t just do it just to do it, to have a big ceremony, to sell tickets. You haven’t seen me decide yet. I go back and forth on Derek Harper all the time, but Harp will be up there before J. Kidd will.”

“I’ve always said my prerequisite was that you played on a championship team for the Mavs. I’d say Jet’s got a shot, Dirk’s an obvious, but as of right now I wouldn’t put J. Kidd up there.”

Well, there you have it. As of right now, Jason Kidd’s number does not seem like it has a chance of being featured in the rafters of the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
