ESPN announced early this afternoon that the trade for Jason Kidd has been approved. Kidd will suit up for the Mavericks Wednesday night for his first game.

Are you ecstatic, depressed, or indifferent? I’ll be covering several angles over the next week or so. For now, it’s enough to know that Jason Kidd is back at the helm in Big D.

Say your goodbyes to Devin Harris, DeSagana Diop, Trenton Hassell, and future first round draft picks which would keep this team alive 5 years from now.

This leaves me to ask 2 questions:

1. Is Devin going to pull a Steve Nash and use this lack of appreciation and credit to motivate him to MVP/All-Star status?

2. Does this mean I have to design a new MavsUpdate banner ?

I’m thinkin’ yes and yes.
