You know, I don't care how diplmatic the two guys try to be. Devin Harris and Jason Kidd are great athletes and competitors and they are going to try and school each other tonight.
Harris was available only briefly before the game tonight, but he met NJ reporters yesterday and talked at length about Kidd. Like Kidd, he was nothing but complimentary.
When asked about Kidd's career, Harris said: "The proof is in the pudding. Obviously when they say he’ a Hall of Famer, that’s usually what you think of, those things that he’s done. A triple-double is one of the hardest things to do; he seems to be able to do it at his disposal and what-not. He’s been a great player for quite some time. It’s an honor being requested in a trade for him, you know. Obviously what he did here is tough to live up to. I look forward to the challenge.
Harris laughed when asked if it would be nice to score 38 against Kidd. "I'd be more delighted to win than anything. Whether it takes 12 points, 38, to get a win at home is more important to us as a team; that’s what I’m more concerned with."
