Kidd a Nash fan and vice versa
BY DAVE D'ALESSANDRO
Star-Ledger Staff



PHOENIX -- They have much in common now, not the least of which is a purity of purpose and the leadership of wounded teams trying to keep their head above .500 waters.

But Jason Kidd and Steve Nash also share a mutual admiration, effusive in its intensity, even though once upon a time they were competing for the same job. Now they compete only for the distinction of being the best at their position, though Kidd makes it pretty clear who deserves that endorsement.

"Steve is my pick. Steve is right there. Steve is the best. He's the MVP," Kidd said yesterday, as he and the Nets prepared for last night's encounter with Nash and the Suns. "It's great to see somebody that I've played against and also had some battles in working out (with) back in the Bay Area, now to see him at the highest point of his game. It's great."

Lamar must get going, as always. Shouldn't be too hard given the Nets' weak frontcourt, though RJ will torch Odom by getting him into foul trouble.

i think it will be a close game.. EHL you should join in the fantasy draft cuz it would be tight to see how a veteran lakers fan like u would do in a fantasy draft. I started this so the likes of u, cris, damian necronamous and Brian34Cook would join.

"Brian Cook, who had a season-high 17 points in the victory over Seattle, left practice with flu-like symptoms. His status for tonight's game against New Jersey will be determined today. … Coach Phil Jackson said Luke Walton, who has been sidelined more than six weeks with a hamstring injury and then a hip strain, is likely to be activated before tonight's game"

Nah, we need Bynum's size off the bench. It would probably be Profit again.

Man, all of our key players are going down.

Kwame Brown
Devean George
Brian Cook
...Slava Medvedenko :laugh:

We were thin in the first place...without these guys, we are transparent.

Then I must be a softy too.. I had the effort with the flu to make a game thread.. If I can do this, I'd hope he could play some at least.. Unless he's feeling worse than I am (like crap!).. :banana:

Sounds more like sympathy pains that a husband has with his pregnant wife. :biggrin:

I've had to work lots of times through horrible flus and colds, thats all about being tough I guess.. Just ask Jordon.
