Did Mavs' Loss Bury Kidd's Ghost?

The Nets didn't make the playoffs...but their history seemed to dominate the Mavs-Hornets series. There was Jason Kidd's long ago role in the firing of newly minted Coach of the Year Byron Scott and a broad agreement that Rod Thorn had suckered Mark Cuban in February's trade. One Dallas sportswriter called it "a colossal, costly mistake". The series, it seemed, went a long way towards burying Kidd's ghost.
