Self promoters bother me. I've always thought that if you have to blow your own horn, it's probably because you can't anybody else to blow it for you.
That didn't come out exactly like I meant it. But you know what I mean.
That's why when Jason Kidd goes on a national radio show and says he thinks the Mavericks can compete with the Lakers, it makes you wonder if anybody was reading the DMN three days earlier, when Kidd said this:
"I think we got a great chance. Mark didn't waste any time in signing a free agent [center Marcin Gortat, a restricted free agent who will sign Wednesday], so I think we're sitting in a good spot. I think we still have a big window to win a championship.''
Some people might think that was just as strong as saying the Mavericks can compete with the Lakers. And he said it before the Shawn Marion story developed.
