Even after all these years, it still stings that Steve Nash defected to the Phoenix Suns. But as a former denizen of Arizona, if there's any other Western Conference team I'd even think about cheering for, it'd be the Suns. Not the Lakers and especially not the Spurs, thank you very much. Nelly Furtado didn't sing "Is your game MVP like Steve Nash?" about Kobe Bryant or Tony Parker, you know. Speaking of songs, if you've been living in a hole for the last 15 years and haven't heard Jason Kidd's rap ditty, "What the Kidd Did," well, there's this cool thing called YouTube. The "song" features such lyrical gems as "I give assists like a high school tutor/But who the hell said bein' a Kidd was easy?" Raking in those millions must be tough, but you can't deny the Kidd knows how to dish. Here's looking at a playoff berth, Kidd. Tip-off is Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at the AAC.
