PICTURE: Jason Kidd’s “Ace-duece” headband
Early in the first quarter Jason Kidd had a wide open three-point shot that he decided to turn down in favor of his killer ball fake. The same ball fake that has worked wonders in him getting his defender in the air and drawing the foul. This time however, Kidd wasn’t as fortunate to just go to the charity stripe to knock down a few free throws. His defender corked him in the head which resulted in Kidd bleeding. What was the remedy you ask? A random headband that provided entertainment for the still sleepy Madison Square Garden crowd! Kidd would head to the locker room and need seven stitches to close the cut.
Knicks’ color commentator, Clyde Frazier coined Kidd’s headband as, “Ace-duece.”
