Jason Kidd decided to remain with the Nets as a free agent in 2003, passing over what could have been a golden opportunity to join the Spurs.
"It may be a silly excuse, but I wanted to try to win a championship on my own, and we had that opportunity in New Jersey," Kidd told the Dallas Morning News. "Then, the Nets went in a whole different direction.
"San Antonio did everything right. I just didn't make the right decision at the time."
Unsure of whether or not Kidd was really expressing regret, the News then asked if he wished he had joined the Spurs.
"Well, they've won two championships since then," Kidd said. "I might have had a ring by now."
