Nets in three-way talks for Kidd: Please let it happen

I know it is a little early to get my hopes up about this trade, but as a San Antonio Spurs fan I really hope this happens... I'll tell you why in a sec, but first here it is...

Nets in three-way talks for Kidd

The New Jersey Nets are in serious negotiations with the Dallas Mavericks and Portland Trail Blazers about a blockbuster three-way trade that would send Jason Kidd to the Mavericks, league sources said Wednesday afternoon.

In the proposed trade, Dallas and Portland would send the Nets a package that includes the Mavs' Devean George and Jerry Stackhouse and Blazers forwards Travis Outlaw and Channing Frye and guard Jarrett Jack. Mavericks point guard Devin Harris would be sent to Portland. Along with Kidd, the Nets would send reserve forward Malik Allen and center Jamaal Magloire to Dallas.

The Nets would also receive at least one future No. 1 pick and cash. It's expected that New Jersey would work a buyout with Stackhouse and allow him to be a free agent. Other players could be included to balance the exchange of contracts.

So... here is the deal... Obviously, being a Spurs fan I'm focused on what the Mavs would be getting and losing... The Mavs would basically get Jason Kidd and a couple scrubs for Devin Harris, Jerry Stackhouse, and Devean George... Are you serious??

This is so amazing. First off Jason Kidd is a scrub. Can't play defense. Can't shoot. The only thing he does well is pass, rebound, and look like a jew. But then again I wish the Spurs could be beneficiary of his 2-15 and 4-16 nights from the field. Sweet!

Next, the mavs are potentially giving up Stack, George, and Devin Harris. All three play better defense than Kidd and can shoot the ball better. I can understand getting rid of george because he looks like a women, but Stack and Harris? Jerry Stackhouse brings a toughness to the Mavs that no one else does, without him the only player with any balls on the team would be Josh Howard. Lastly, Devin Harris. I wouldn't trade Devin for Kidd straight up. Devin is fastly turning into one of the premier point guards in the NBA. He drives, shoots, plays defense, and works harder than Jason Kidd. Not to mention he is the best flopping actor in the league... which is part of the game now a days, sad but true. I believe he had an NBA best last year in charges taken (in the rear) last year.

So, I say again, this San Antonio Spurs fan can't wait for this trade because I believe it will totally destroy the Mavericks chance for a championship.
