Everyone else besides Tyson Chandler was ice cold yesterday. I agree about Kidd this team needs him come playoff time. He is such a great team player.
I honestly would rather win 45-50 games and have Kidd 100% healthy come playoffs then win 55 games and have Kidd falling apart when the playoffs start. If Kidd's hurt let him sit and maintain health.
