Jason Kidd shot 18.6% from the floor during the preseason, but that doesn't deter him from believeing he can play like he was 29 or 30 again. The reason: the arrival of Marcus Williams should mean fewer minutes for the captain. IF he can learn to play consistent defense, says Kidd, "He’s going to be a really good one, and a lot earlier than anyone expects." Meanwhile, Josh Boone has begun shooting and reports he has put on 18 pounds of muscle while rehabbing from shoulder surgery. Who knew?
