However, Kidd brings that mentality to keep the ball moving, make sure EVERYONE else gets involved, and only take his shot if hes wide open. Paul and Williams, especially Paul, need the ball in their hands to be effective, moreso than Kidd. Kidd also always Team USA to switch a lot more pick and roll on defense because he is the biggest point guard. On a team without much scoring ability D-Will or Paul would be better options, but not on this team.

As for Kidd in the playoffs, that has nothing to do with these games. Paul didn't look too good himself out there. He was getting beat play after play on defense. I think Deron is the best PG for the job in international play. He's a good defender, strong, and gets in the lane at will. Plus he can shoot, Kidd's weakness.
