Jason Kidd - Medical Miracle

Jason Kidd plays his 90th straight game tonight, his longest stretch since 2002...all of them post-microfracture surgery. Unlike other players whose microfracture led to a decline in their performance--Jerome Mashburn, Penny Hardaway and Allan Houston come to mind--Kidd seems as good as new. One reason is that in Kidd's case, the surgery was on a non-weight-bearing part of his knee. But another was the way he rehabbed.
