If you're looking for another strange aspect to this strange season, here it is: Just before Jason Kidd went on his famous Salt Lake City rant, he had asked the Nets for a one-year extension, at $24 million. The extension would have taken Kidd through the 2009-10 season, when the Nets hope to be playing their first season in Brooklyn. The Nets told Kidd's agent they won't be committing such big money to a 37-year-old.
