You’re Kidding, Right?

One game, and already Richie's proclaiming Kidd and empty jersey -- one you can buy right here, matter o' fact!

Don’t worry, maybe one of the Mavericks will exercise an obscure trade veto, and we can nix this whole Jason Kidd deal before it’s too late. Oh, shit. Wait. We’re stuck? I know, I know. It’s just one game. Too early for those of us who have poo-pooed this trade from the start to gloat. But geez, in his first game back Kidd has twice as many turnovers (six) as field goals (three), and the Mavs look slow and old and totally discombobulated in getting shellacked by the Hornets.

Bright spot? Hmm. Well, if it’s any consolation, Shaq’s debut in Phoenix didn’t go so swell either. --Richie Whitt

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
