Whew! The first game of the post-Kidd era is still a long ways away...same with the post-Carter era. Both players made it through the trade deadline as well as the third most rumored trade bait, the Kings' Mike Bibby. Both teams are coming off losses following the break and both are disappointing. The Kings feature Kevin Martin, the leading candidate for Most Improved Player. Lost in the trade deadline rumor mill was Carter's 46-point effort Wednesday, second highest of his Nets career. Jason Kidd is questionable for the game, with not-so obvious soreness.
