Once upon a time Jason Kidd was a very good point guard. In fact, there were those who said he was the best point guard on the planet. But that was then and this is now. And now he's even better.
Then, the only hole in his otherwise awesome game (actually more of a nit-pick than a hole) was that he wasn't a good shooter, didn't look for the shot enough, or just plain didn't score enough (take your pick). Now none of the above applies.
By way of illustrating just how small this hole/nit-pick was, former Clippers' coach Bill Fitch once said Jason had so many other ways to not only beat you but actually dominate a game that he really didn't have to score at all. And a lot of other coaches around the league would give a heartfelt "Amen" to that.
