Mark Cuban Says Jason Kidd Hurt His Feelings; Won’t Retire His Jersey
Jason Kidd changed his mind.
No crime against changing your mind, before your signature is on the dotted line (that rhymed). Kidd said he was going back to Dallas then did a 180 and signed with Knicks.
That didn’t sit well with Mark Cuban.
Cuban is still fuming at Kidd’s handling of the situation and said there’s no chance he’ll consider retiring Kidd’s No. 2 jersey.
“I was more than upset. I thought he was coming. I was pissed,” Cuban said. “J-Kidd is a big boy; he can do whatever he wants. But you don’t change your mind like that. That was … yeah. I’m sure I’ll get over it at some point, but as of now, I wouldn’t put J-Kidd’s number in the rafters.
“It hurt my feelings, period, because I felt that we had developed a relationship and I thought that he was committed to the organization. It sure seemed that he was,” Cuban continued. “I mean, J-Kidd was active in going out there and talking to Deron Williams the whole time. I guess it was more shocking and surprising than anything else.”
I guess that leaves more room for Jason Terry’s jersey to be retired.
