08:45 AM ET 07.06 | n their previous and often forgettable incarnation as the New Jersey Nets, a prime Jason Kidd led a bunch of non-stars into consecutive NBA Finals. Now the coach, Kidd believes he actually has a better point guard in Deron Williams. "He's better than me. I mean, he can shoot," said Kidd, a notorious streaky shooter throughout his career. "He's a guy who can set the table, he can get to the basket, he can score. I don't look at him as me. Again, he's a little bit better than I am."

Love is in the air.

It's called "Kissing up to your PG".
DWill is NO WHERE close to a Jason Kidd. Period!

Kidd needs to be drug tested.

That's humility & it make J-Kidd a class act...

A class act would not throw fries at his ex wife or drink and drive.

"Jason Kidd: Deron Williams is better than me"...

That's because you're 100 years old and he doesn't beat up women...

That's like the Fox news twist :0)

He might be but he doesn't seem to have the heart and drive as JK did.

July 6, 2013  11:48 AM ET

Right now this would be like saying that DWill is better than me, because much like Kidd I could go 0 for an entire series.

I pity the fool, rookie coach that kisses the star players butt!

July 6, 2013  05:38 PM ET

Deron has too much Deron... Rather have Kidd by a long shot...

Kidd will simply be another coach Deron gets fired.
