Donnie Walsh, IMO, is generally a C+ GM in a league with lotsa
Ds and Fs. Looked better than he is in comparison to the lost Master Thomas. Signing the empty Kidd will simply confim that grade.

LOL at this idiot above me. Kidd at 36 is still better than anyone on the Knicks roster. I have no problem with this signing.

There has been some talk about Ramon Sessions of Miwaukee. They have Ridnour and picked up Jennings. They might be willing to part. As far as pts/assists this guy can play and give you 15/7. I don't know if he can play d or has a good attitude or what but he is only 23 and 6'3" so the Knicks should look into picking him up over Kidd or anyone else right now but even if they don't the Knicks have Duhon who will now be better rested with Robinson?/Douglas backing him up.

Kidd has made a lot of money in his career but he prob has spent most of it as well. this will probably be Kidd's last contract so look for him to take Cuban's money.

i still think he has smth left in his tank. if he came to NY he would prob have a pretty good first year and then completely drop off.

I doubt at this stage of his career he will leave 6-8million on the table.

I don't see any reason why the Knicks have to bring Jason Kidd in. For what? So they can have a chance to bring in "you know who" in 2010?...

The Knicks should find ways to make their team better now rather than wait the FA's starting in 2010...

A little harsh, huh? I think he's pretty close - Kidd would be at best a pretty good acquisition and that is if he dishes at least 9 a game and scores at least 10 w/ few turnovers. He also is a dou .. bag which could hurt the locker room. Offensively he would be better than their guards but his defense is worse than Nate's and he is much slower laterally. He might dish 15 one game but let his opponent put 30 on him.

It seems like Nate is under constant attack in the columns by Newsday writers. Newsday is owned by Cablevision which also owns the Knicks, who do not want to pay too much money for Nate or Lee. You see the Knicks, D'An the Man, doesn't feel like Nate fits into their plans very well. We hear through Newsday, who are owned by Cablevision, who also own the Knicks that Nate does not play very good defense. Every time I've seen Nate play he is going after the ball like a dog. He hounds the opposing PG's. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Nate is the only player on the Knicks who can create his own shot at will. He can break down the D and now dish to a center since we'll have a few this year. Players with this capability, albeit still somewhat raw in Nate, are sought after by teams in the know. There is a reason that the Lakers and Orlando are interested in Nate. By the way, weren't LA and Orlando in that event called the "NBA FINALS"? This event is run by the league every year and is not owned or controlled by Cablevision which owns Newsday, which owns the Knicks, which have not won a Championship in over 35 years, who have not even made it to the playoffs in years.

Dont let your personal opionons get in the way of what Jkidd really is. I cannot stand him myself but from a basketball move, this would only help the knicks, and help them a great deal.

RealGM thinks it implies that DW had a deal up his sleeve to get under the cal. Any idea whatthat might be, or when it will happen? Thanks!

ALAN,
Jason Kidd signing with the Knicks would be best for
both parties involved.

Jason Kidd gets to play in the worlds most famous arena
while getting more endorsements & praise than in Dallas.

While the Knicks recieve a player/ coach on the floor
who will enhance the development of the young players.

36 year old PG who never shot well enough in the playoffs to keep the defenses honest. THis is not the type of roster move that makes the Knicks appealing for 2010 FA's... that idiot you refer to may be in the mirror

LOL at you, amigo.

Kidd faked an injury with the Nets and sat out games to get himself traded. He turned his back on his teammates, and the fans.

The guy is a loser, and so will be Walsh and all Knicks fans if they sign him.

at least someone is paying attention. He also campaigned for Franks to get the job over Byron Scott
that move really worked out. Funny how Kidd couldn't win with a combination Kenyon MArtin, Richard Jefferson and then even Vince Carter
but he's always seen as this great leader. Nate and Lee will be allowed
to leave and then they give 36 year old Kidd 3 years???

Sign who ever you want. The Lakers picked up Ron Artest (yeah I know he's got the I.Q of a bucket of rocks)Phil and Kobe will keep him in line. Can you say two in a row.
Meanwhile the Knicks are still fighting off the effects of the swine flu called Isiah. Jason Kidd,Grant Hill, Steve Nash all way past thier prime. Why not sign Allan Houston.

Its a complete embarrassment how a team like the Knicks who play in NYC have not won a championship after all these years?
