Jason Kidd dribbles past Bobby Hurley during a 1993 tournament game between Cal and Duke. The Golden Bears, led by Kidd, upset the two-time defending champion Blue Devils in the second round. Kidd is headed to the Knicks this season, and Mark Cuban is not happy about it. The Mavs owner said of Kidd’s departure: “I’m sure I’ll get over it at some point, but as of now, I wouldn’t put J-Kidd’s number in the rafters. It hurt my feelings, period, because I felt that we had developed a relationship and I thought that he was committed to the organization. It sure seemed that he was. I mean, J-Kidd was active in going out there and talking to Deron Williams the whole time. I guess it was more shocking and surprising than anything else.” (John Biever/SI)
