Who was Jason Kidd criticizing with this line from the Salt Lake Tribune: "For the last five or six years, I've played with some guys who carried the offensive load and I was [left] standing behind the three-point line." Could it be Kidd's response to Rod Thorn's comments he wasn't playing with heart? Expect more of the same as pundits contine to write about the trade. Another common theme: did Avery Johnson's coaching style affect Devin Harris and will it affect Kidd.

- Kidd turns out to be perfect maverick for Dallas - Dave D'Alessandro - Star-Ledger
- Kidd is worth the price - Steve Luhm - Salt Lake Tribune
