Kidd to Dallas "imminent": Why The East Just Won the Finals

According to ESPN the rumors that the Kidd-to-Dallas deal was imminent, which beacme the rumor that the Kidd-to-Dallas talks have stalled, are now back to the rumors that the deal is about to happen.

I would love to see this move happen. It would take a team that has been on the cusp of great, and push them over the hump. I also love how competitive that the West has become, though it is certainly at the expense of the talent in the East. This may however help the Eastern Conference Champ more than it helps any team in the West. We are back to the point where you almost know that the NBA Finals will be anti-climactic. Who ever wins the West will likely be beat up over consecutive 6 or 7 game series. While the winner of the East will probably have coasted to a finals meeting between Boston and Detroit. Which ever one wins will probably have a lot more rest than the winner out of the West.

In the proposed deal in return for Kidd, Dallas would send 24-year-old point guard Devin Harris, veteran swingman Jerry Stackhouse, and a bunch of expiring contracts to make the money work.
