KIDD: IT DOESN'T PAIN ME Jason Kidd didn't gloat after last night's game. But he basically said of the Nets' woes right now that it's not his problem.

Kidd, a likely future Hall-of-Fame point guard, former Nets superstar and current Mavericks semi-star - played a splendid game in last night's record-breaking Nets' loss. In the Mavericks' 117-101 rout at the Izod Center, Kidd directed a magnificent Dallas offense, nearly racking up a triple double with 16 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds. By the way, he also added five steals and a block.

After leading the Nets to the Finals in two straight seasons, maybe it is a little painful to watch his former team reach such depth?

"No, 'cause I'm not here, so it doesn't pain me," Kidd said. "It's unfortunate. But I think the biggest thing, how I can wish those guys luck and get this thing turned around. And you can only say that there were whispers of this coming. You could see it coming. So they'll get it turned around."

Kidd said things began changing for the Nets once they lost Kenyon Martin to the Nuggets in 2004.

"Because once you lose your emotional and the energy leader, we had nobody to draw from," Kidd said. "And we never replaced players that we lost, from Lucious [Harris] to Kerry [Kittles]. All the role players. It became, once the team was sold, it became a money game. And that's just the business of Basketball."

Kidd said the fans "all said that they missed me," and added, "I miss them, too, because this was a great place to play while I was here."
