"Deep down in my stomach, with every inch of me, I pure, straight hate you...but goddamn it do I respect you!"

-Wes Mantooth

Yep...that line pretty much sums up how I feel about Jason Kidd. I despised the man when he played for other teams and I cruelly mocked him for his recent drunk-driving arrest after the Knicks signed him in the off-season (drunk-driving ain't cool!) Then, the season started...

...

...let's just say, I still feel a little dirty.

I've been cheering like mad for Kidd, cursing out the goons who have been knocking him upside the head fairly often so far, laughing at his awkward headband and hockey helmet, and even - God help me - cheering his Reggie Miller leg-kick-out three to beat the Nets. We're all going to hell for that last one, people.
