Jason Kidd played fewer minutes than anyone anticipated during last month's Americas Cup blowouts in Las Vegas. With no team near the USA's combine, and with two top backups, Kidd played only 15 minutes per game. But the experience put him in "the best shape I've ever been in at this time of the year. Physically and mentally, I'm ready to go" he told the Daily News' Julian Garcia. No word on his golf date with Allan Houston.
