vince never did fit in to the nets champion running games, which immediately took away some of the huge impact that kidd made in 02 and 03. he just wasn't that great of a fit for the nets.
I call BS on this. Kidd and Carter were probably the best backcourt in the league when they were together, I don't see how he wasn't a great fit. The loss of Martin destroyed any semblance of a decent frontcourt for that team, killing any chance for them to be anything other than playoff victims to a more balanced Miami Heat team. Adding Chandler would have definitely helped on that front, though I don't think enough to put them over the top (Chandler was too raw at the time)
