I wanted Kidd over Nash for a couple reasons:
I was 100 percent certain we were retaining Lin
I thought he would play a good reserve roll and make us a more championship oriented squad.
I thought if we signed him we would be able to have enough money to bring in Lamar Odom.
I never thought Kidd would be better then Nash but for our needs I was on the Kidd bandwagon all day.
I am actually shocked out how well this team has been put together. If rebounding becomes our biggest problem this whole season I am content with it. No turnovers, great range, lots of versaility, very deep bench. I like what I am seeing so far without shump and amare. I know the league is nervous to see how Amare and Shump are incorporated..

Lin has spectacular alley oops, gets tons of steals, game winners and clutch play are unmatched by Rubio.
Comparing Lin to Rubio is like comparing Kate Upton to Rosie O' Donnell. They're both on TV, but that's where the comparison ends.
