Jason Kidd looking at the ‘bright side’ of lockout

There has been some talk among older players around the NBA that an extended lockout could nudge them into early retirement. But for 38-year-old Jason Kidd, coming off a championship with the Mavericks, a lockout doesn’t sound like such a bad idea.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Jason Kidd must be a Monty Python fan because he’s looking at the ‘bright side’ of the lockout.

Kidd thinks a lockout shortened season would be to his advantage. And he’s right.

For instance, a 50 game season would mean less wear-and-tear, which would preserve Kidd for when the Dallas Mavericks attempt to defend their championship.

But Kidd isn’t alone. Other veterans have the same plan.

A short season would let Kobe Bryant rest, recuperate, and heal. And then he may return as the game’s best player.

So Kidd will have to find the ‘bright side’ in facing a re-energized Bryant.
