Anyone who watched Jason Kidd hit five straight three's against Washington on Tuesday knows this is not the same player once known as "Ason" (No "J"). Kidd is having his best shooting year and one reason is that he admits to putting in more practice time. But another is the tutelage of Nets' shooting coach Bob Thate, who several players have credited with helping them improve their shot. Kidd now wishes he had done more earlier.
