Kidd Wins Rave Reviews in Team USA Revival

With Team USA dispatching New World rivals with abandon, the reviews for the team are pouring in and the words used to describe Jason Kidd's role should be familar to Nets' fans: "inspirational"..."pushes the tempo, provides direction and speeds up the game"..."runs things like a CEO"..."the catalyst". Now 36-0 in international play, Kidd leads the US into the semi-final Saturday at 7 p.m. on ESPN Classic. This is the game that will either put the U.S. in Beijing or force them to try to qualify in a pre-Olympic tourney next summer.
