    Actually, I would do the freaking same thing if I was him. You go from having a chance at winning another championship ring, to a team that is a playoff team in the East, but will stand no chance whatsoever.

    The way I see it is that he'd rather stay with a Pretender team, than go to a No-Chance-In-Hell team. Trade or not. Dallas still isn't going to win.
    I don't blame him either.

    Whoever gave him a no trade clause needs to be fired ASAP though!

    This was my thought exactly. Who the **** gives a no-trade clause to Devean freaking George?

    I think the no trade clause is a special stipulation of a 1-year Bird contract, which is an exception that allows teams to re-sign their own players even if they're over the salary cap.

    Things really turning ugly with this whole situation. After George blocked the trade, the NBA ruled that Stackhouse cannot re-sign with Dallas if he's waived, so Dallas supposedly is no longer offering Stackhouse and is trying to include Van Horn and Hassell in the trade, but the Nets don't want Hassell's contract.

    It's gonna take a lot of work for the two sides to work something out. What if they don't? Obviously Jason Kidd's going to be ****ing pissed that he came so close to being traded to a contender but is stuck in Jersey. How are guys like Devin Harris and Diop going to respond, after seeing that their team was so willing to ship them out?

    Should be interesting to see how this situation plays out.

    Kidd trade now official
    ESPN - Kidd trade from Nets to Mavericks now official - NBA

    To Dallas: Kidd and Malik Allen
    To Jersey: Devin Harris, DeSagana Diop, Trenton Hassell, Maurice Ager, Keith Van Horn, first-round picks in 2009 and 2010, and $3 million in cash

    It's NBA Championship or bust for the Mavs

    I love these chain reaction trades. Kidd, what is he like 42? Shaq, overweight, injury prone and what, 35? I love the fact Gasol is in a Laker uniform in his prime.

    Meanwhile, Kobe, Gasol and Bynum will be playing together for the next 5 years.

    I understand what the Suns and Mavs are doing. Both HAVE to win now. The Suns have maybe 2 more elite years out of Nash, with the team they had they wern't going to win the title. Trading for Shaq is a risk, but it's a calculated risk.

    Same with the Mavs, Harris is a good young player but when he hits his prime in 5 years or so, Dirk will be 35. They also have to win now, plus there's no way they could enter this year's playoffs with the same roster that got upset by the Warriors.

    Both teams are "All In" as they should be.

    I say there's no way in hell Dallas will be any better with Kidd than without. I'm not lookin for conflict but we ARE talking about the Mavericks (choke city).

    Personally, I'd never make this trade at this point in Kidd's career; he's way too old. Does he have enough to catapult Dallas to the championships? Not a chance.

    So let's see what we've got here - Dallas won't do any better in the playoffs, AND, they're S.O.L. without two 1st round picks.

    And while ASU makes a good argument for justifying Dallas and Phoenix's trades....c'mon, ASU.....you know as well as me that neither move will make a true difference this season.

    Couldn't the Mavericks just have held on to Nash when they had the chance?
