Marc Berman's post on New York Knicks | Latest updates on Sulia
I asked Jason Kidd at practice yesterday how close he was to becoming a Spur when he was a free agent in 2003 right
after the #Nets lost to the Spurs in the 2003 NBA Finals. San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich courted Kidd to potentially replace Tony Parker. Kidd remained in Jersey and Parker's Spurs still rolled on to another two titles. How close? “Very. Very close,'' the Knicks future Hall of Fame guard said. "If it wasn’t for the fact I thought I could win a championship in New Jersey, I would’ve came here. I thought we had a chance to still win but it just didn’t work out that way.’’ To the point that he eventually forced his trade from Jersey to Dallas.
