Like you said, even though he is aging and his game is on the decline, signing him would definately improve the team. He has always held the leadership role, Lebron always said he loved playing with Kidd, and Kidd would also be a great mentor if we were able to get Rubio.

Well Barbara.....you are consistent. If they sign Kidd, every PG in the league is going to blow right by him, and we don't have the D to help. Teams will be scoring 120 points a night on us.

You are, by far, the least knowledgable writer this rag of a paper has.

They do NOT need J.Kidd!! Although he is one of my favorites, he would be a 100% complete stop gap move that they do not need! Let them play Duhon another year or try to get Rubio. Better yet, let them fall into the Lottery again and get a decent player for years to come. I so hate stupid articles like this.

Kidd is just using the Knicks as a bargaining chip. He will want more than 1 year at the exemption. The Mask is right.

Kidd is washed up. This moves reeks of Scott Layden. One negative is that they don't have their pick for 2010, Utah owns it.

No 1st rounder next season - Starbury's parting gift. If it's a lottery pick, Isiah will be laughing it up at FIU.

Persuasive and well-stated, as usual, Ms. Barker.

I wasn't thrilled about this potential move, given Kidd's age, but you make a very strong case. Perhaps Kidd could groom his successor.

No way Nate becomes a better-than-average third guard?

Barbara - remember, the ball goes into the hoop. Even though Kidd may have lost a step, you never had one.Resign now you sportwriting hack!
