DALLAS -- When New York Knicks point guard Jason Kidd was introduced in the starting lineup tonight against the Dallas Mavericks, the crowd at American Airlines Center gave him a nice ovation.
There was some question on whether or not Kidd would get a positive reception. Kidd helped the Mavs win the 2011 NBA title and had verbally agreed to sign a three-year, $9 million contract when he became a free agent this past summer.
But Kidd surprised -- and upset -- a lot of folks associated with the Mavs when he changed his mind and decided to sign a three-year, $9 million contract with the Knicks. Mavs fans, though, put all that behind them and gave Kidd the quality ovation he deserved for what he brought to this organization.
