Mark Cuban Luring Jason Kidd to Dallas

For a half-hour before last night’s game, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban sat on the baseline openly chatting with Nets special assistant Kiki Vandeweghe. The blue-jeaned billionaire wasn’t consummating a deal for Jason Kidd, but mischievously tweaking the media for the sheer joy of it. By the third quarter, Cuban must have wished he had gotten a trade done after Kidd put on a virtuoso performance. Kidd led a 101-82 rout so complete that at one point Cuban – on the Mavs bench – could only bury his face in his hands and rub his temples as if trying to massage an answer out of his brain.
