Pope’s Pick: March 1

March 2, 2011 § Leave a comment

Jason Kidd, Dallas Mavericks

Dallas Mavericks 37 year-old point guard Jason Kidd partied like it was 1999 tonight in Philadelphia.  Against the rejuvenated Sixers and young Kidd-Doppelganger Jrue Holiday, the 17 year veteran played his best game of the 2010-2011 season in his team’s 101-93 victory.

Kidd, a future hall-of-famer, posted a triple double of 13 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists while swiping three steals and committing no turnovers.  He was at his best down the stretch, scoring seven points in the game’s final three minutes as the Mavs methodically put away the home team.

While Kidd no doubt wishes he could have saved this epic retro performance for the postseason, the fact that he’s still capable of such makes Dallas an extra scary opponent come spring time.
