Dave D'Alessandro points out one of the subtexts of last night's win over the Pistons: how Jason Kidd remembers well the quotes from Chauncey Billups after the 2004 playoffs. Billups described Kidd, who underwent microfracture surgery two months later, as being "banged up a little". Kidd, says D'Alessandro, never forgot that and exacted some measure of payback last night. Meanwhile, Dumpy believes that Lawrence Frank would be better off not playing Kidd with Jacque Vaughn.
