Kidd gets fined for being creative

From where I sit it looks like the NBA isn't impressed with Jason Kidd...

Given how crappy the Nets are once again this is creating a positive highlight for Brooklyn. Well, it's kind of positive. I will give Kidd credit for coming up with an original idea to buy his team a timeout. I do have a couple of problems with the plan. For starters, it was too obvious. It doesn't take much of a lip reader to see Kidd's instruction to Tyshawn Taylor. Maybe next time Kidd could find a more subtle way to give those orders. A simple nod of the head, for instance. Secondarily, it didn't actually accomplish very much. Sure, they got time to draw up a play, but they didn't score. And, in the end that's the real goal. To create a play and execute it. The Nets still lost, the game ended the way it should have. Jason Kidd got to show some bravado, and Karma looked after the rest.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
