I'm sorry but this is the dumbest reason out there.
I know your affinity for Kidd will make it a long and fruitless discussion.
But when you have a PG like Chris Paul in the lienup you need to find a backup to complement Paul.
We don´t need Kidds passing, neither do we need his rebounding. USA didn´t lose games because of their lack of passing or rebounding or playmaking. they lost because their athleticism isn´t able to win games because of their lack of fundamentals. What Kidd can do is what Chris Paul can do.
Kidd is a great PG but in 2008 he will be 34 or 35 and seriously you must be kidding yourself if you think he would be better than Felton, Paul, Bibby, Billups and others for the European game.
