... because I know I've been sort of regarding him that way for awhile. I'm mean... he's old. 38 is usually beyond productive years for a PG.
But look at his career stats:
His "decline" is very slow. He's still a productive PG at 38. His scoring is down a lil this year, but his assists are still 8+/game. He's never been generally fast or athletic, just crafty, in the Mark Jackson mold. So I guess it just makes sense that this guy keeps getting older than dirt... and still keeps producing.
I've always been a fan of Kidd's, even back in college. It's just fun to go look at a guy who most people don't really give much thought to anymore and see that he's defying the odds.
I like the Mavs this year. I think Dirk and Kidd and Carlisle and Marion are deserving. Terry has always been a baller, too.
Just random thoughts about the Mavs. After last night's incredible comeback win, I think I've found the team I'm rooting for to win it all.
