I don't know if I'd say way better. Kidd was better in his prime but I think that Nash is the better and more dangerous offensive player. Along with his great passing skills, he can shoot the ball efficiently with range. Kidd was slightly better in the open court but I think Nash is superior in the halfcourt. Kidd's defense and rebounding prowess makes him a better player, though.D.J. said:Back in 2002 and 2003, Kidd was way better. Now, it's the other way around. Today, I'd take Nash over Kidd in a second.
