    Default should the Knicks consider Kidd?

    Kidd always has enjoyed playing at the Garden. Though the Knicks have planned for the summer of 2010, adding Kidd this summer would be a drawing piece for LeBron James.
    Even if they trade Curry for an expiring contract - a big if - they would not be far enough under the cap. Unless they can work out a sign and trade, the best the Knicks could offer would be the full $6 million mid-level exception across five years, totaling, with raises, $35 million.
    With teams gearing up for 2010, Kidd may not have a ton of suitors, other than Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
    It could make sense for the Knicks. Duhon is signed to a two-year contract and likely will be gone after next season. Duhon would be a perfect backup to Kidd, whose mid-level signing would not effect their cap room for James if Lee and Nate Robinson leave as free agents.
    It makes sense for Kidd, too. He played for D'Antoni during the Olympics and his children still attend New Jersey schools because of his divorce to Joumana. A family source said T.J. would love Kidd to become a Knick and return to the area.
    "Why not (consider the Knicks)," Kidd said. "I'm going to look and see."

    Kidd has been one of my favorite players since Phoenix times, but he's not the same Kidd anymore. Signing him to a 5 year midlevel deal would be disastrous to us. He doesnt have a good shot to last that long. And he isnt an all-NBA defender anymore, although i think he could be if he focused on that as his primary goal.
    He's still a starter for most of the teams in the league, but not for very long, if he continues to slow down.

    U dont want to start building your contender from complementary, veteran pieces. First u want to get your main guys, and then surround them with good parts.
    So we need to wait for 2010, get our foundation players, and then look at all options to build up from there. If Kidd is available then at some point, he could be a great addition to a contender. But right now, we dont need to screw up with our cap.

    That said, if Kidd is somehow available during the season, maybe for a Lee+Curry deal or similar, we could use his expiring contract and skills. But we need to stay put in 2009 FA, unless something really too good to pass shows up.

    Jason Kidd is almost on my Michael Jordan, Reggie Miller, Alonzo Mourning level in terms if hate. I don't want this punk on the team or his ugly kid in the stands.

    I agree, i hate him, he didnt want to come to new york when he was on the nets, and i want no part of him. At least michael and reggie i respected, I have no respect for kidd. If we need an aging point we can get nash in 2 years.

    Really don't care, I do care about who will preform better though

    They both suck on Defense
    They both have great court Vision and great ball handling skills
    They both have played for coach D before (Kidd/Olimpics)
    Nash is a better scorer
    Kidd is a better rebounder

    There both better options than what we currently have. But in coach D's system I'll allways take the scorer

    Kidd might be an ideal backup by that time. He's like having an extra coach on the team and a veteran that will make players better. Wether he plays or not, and regardless of how much you hate him, Jason Kidd is a living legend and can arguably considered the best point gaurd of the modern game.

    I would make a move for him to be a backup.

    Thats a real good debate. Stockton vs. Kidd.

    Both haven't won any rings, but both have won a hell of a lot of games.

    Karl Malone owes alot of his success to John. And I think John was more of a floor leader. Kidd pales in comparison in that area. Kidd threw a coach two under a bus and has often had contract feuds with management. With John, that never existed. He was any team's dream player.

    If I had to chose one, I would go with John. But like I said, its a worthy debate and Kidd is right in that conversation. Not too many point guards would be.

    He gave an interview last season saying the Knicks sucks and he would never play for them.
    So, basically, he's an ass.
