Kidd: Nets To Be "Very Competitive"


What does he know that we don't...yet? In an interview with Michael Kay on ESPN New York, Jason Kidd seemed "intrigued" about playing for the Nets in Brooklyn, writes Rod Boone, Newsday's new Nets beat reporter. The reason: he thinks the team can win.

"I think Brooklyn, since the Dodgers left, they have been waiting for a team to come back," Kidd said. "So I think there will be a lot of excitement and I think that team, they are going to put a team out that is going to be very competitive next year." He again said he'd happily back up Deron Williams.

Kidd who played during Bruce Ratner's penny pinching days has expressed confidence in Mikhail Prokhorov. The greatest player to ever wear a Nets uniform said money wouldn't be a big factor. He also said he could back up Jeremy Lin.
