Kidd: " I Wanted to Try to Win a Championship on My Own"

He now calls his rationale "silly" but Jason Kidd says he stayed in New Jersey six years ago out of ego. "I wanted to try to win a championship on my own," Kidd told reporters Tuesday. Rather than win with the Spurs and Tim Duncan, Kidd wanted to go it alone. While not regretting his decision, Kidd adds, ""Then, the Nets went in a whole different direction." His choice opened the way for Tony Parker.
