    Incarcerated Bob @incarceratedbob 7m Kidd joining Knicks does not mean Felton isn't coming. #Lin on the other hand... Hmmm
    Incarcerated Bob is full of ****.

    If you listen to a word he says I have no interest in reading your opinion as a sports fan.

    My guess is nothing. Knicks will match, Kidd will backup.

    Unlike Kidd, Nash can play at an all-star or near all-star level for the next 3 years.

    Kidd is coming to New York to keel over and die. But before he keels, he'll shoot 25% from the field for us.

    I don't know, man.

    I mean, it can't hurt to have a hall of famer like Kidd on the team, but let's not get carried away.
    I think the big difference for a lot of Knicks' fans is that signing Kidd doesn't cost us Shump. Kidd also can still play a little defense, unlike Nash. Overall, I would have preferred Nash, but Kidd is better than the diddly squat we were about to get from this offseason.

    Unlike nash, kidd is a cheaper and better defensive player who is willing to take a backseat to lin. Unlike nash, kidd is a champion who has so much more postseason experience than nash. Not saying i wouldnt take nash over kidd but this is the smarter signing.

    Good signing. If Lin leaves at least we will have someone to play PG apart from Toney Douglas.

    Just heard it on ESPN sports.... Great News: Jason Kidd leadership in MSG .... No more ISO-Melo offense running good players out of New York.

    Have a lot of you guys seen JKidd play in the last few years? He plays like a very old man at this point.

    The last two seasons he shot 36%. I repeat 36%.
    Last year he averaged 6.2 PPG and 5.5 APG in 29 minutes.
    That's not to mention how easy it is to get past him at this point in his career.

    He can play some backup minutes but adding him won't help much at all.

    Great pickup. Veteran pickup and I think J Kidd has a little tread left on those tires. I thought Kidd was just using the Knicks for leverage, but I guess NY by way of Dallas is the new pipeline. Shows our boys are serious. Can't wait to see how Woody stirs this drink. Hate to tell ya Lin fans, but Linsanity in NYC is over.

    This is good, maybe great.

    Tyson will definitely be getting those lobs.

    rep, Kidd is also an underrated rebounder and can play some 2 guard.

    He's coming here to be a back-up, so minutes played is not an issue. As far as his stats last year, they've definitely tailed off, but take a look at what he did to close out last year and in the playoffs. He can still give quality minutes when the need is there. As far as his shooting, it is what it is, but he's not coming here to take too many shots. Biggest plus with Kidd is that despite getting up there in years, he still can play some defense (steals have remained pretty good as well).

    Also it's insane to compare Nash to Kidd at this point. There's a reason Nash is getting paid big money. The guy can still flat out play. Second in the league in assists and he was passing to scrubs. He also shot a career best 53% from the field comapred to Kidd's abysmal 36%.

    2011 - 2012 Stats

    Kidd: 29 Min/Game, 36% FG, 6.2 PPG, 5.5 APG

    Nash: 32 Min/Game, 53% FG*, 12.5 PPG, 10.7 APG
    *Career High

    Default sKidd marks

    excellent news to have the wife beater on the squad.
    He was NBA champ with Chandler, having the 2 of them together again is just as good as Nash reuniting with STAT, IMHO. remember, we were gonna lose Shump in Nash deal, so it all works out for best.

    However, Kyle Lowry just signed with Raptors, Dragic signed with Suns, where does that leave Houston? they have to be DESPERATE to get Lin...

    i can't believe anything i read now, after hearing Kidd signed with Mavs initially.
    I assume Mavs won't do a sign & trade with Knicks, since they didn't want to lose him in the first place, so I guess Knicks are using MLE...?

    anyone else Knicks go for (Felton, Foye) must be sign & trade or Vets min?

    what's next?
