Bring Back Jason Kidd to the Bay! ...Why not?

Jk_cal_300_medium

Hyphy since Day 1

As I was looking at a current list of free agents this offseason, I saw great players pop up like Carlos Boozer, Mehmet Okur, Leon Powe, Ben Gordon, Joe Smith (I kid, I kid), Chris "Birdman" Andersen, Ron Artest, Lamar Odom, David Lee, Nate Robinson, Matt Barnes, Ike Diogu (I joke, I joke), Shawn Marion...the list goes on. 

Looks like Boozer and Okur are staying with the Utah Jazz...money-wise great option.  Living wise?  Yo guys, do you really want to stay in SLC for another year?  I was there in January...Utah's kinda...off...

Anywho, one free agent stuck out to the most. 

JASON KIDD. 

Wanna know why?

Beyond the ridiculous honors, stats, and great shots he's put up over the years - look at it this way.  We're more than likely keeping Stephen "Masala" Curry and we're going to look to him to the PG of the future.  Why not have him sit behind and learn from one of the greatest PGs in NBA history? 

We could offer "The Kidd" our MLE and have him keep the position going til Curry's ready to step up into the game. Wouldn't exposing Curry to a guy that averages almost 10 assists per game be a great way to bring him in to full form? 


He's originally from the Bay - born in SF, played college ball at UC Berkeley.  Old friend of Gary Patyon's.  Why not finish his career in the Bay?
