Almost 20 years later, Mashburn attempted to set the record straight about the Kidd-Jackson-Braxton love triangle. "She definitely cost me relationships with Jimmy Jackson and Jason Kidd," Mashburn said on KRLD-FM. "I necessarily wouldn’t even put it on here. I think at that time Jimmy and Jason were going through their own particular issues. From my understanding, being in the locker room, there was no truth to the Toni Braxton part. She played a part in it from the standpoint that she had an album out at the time, or was about to release it, called ‘Secrets.’ She went on the Dallas airwaves and said she doesn’t kiss and tell. She’s a beautiful women, but I think it did cost us because of egos, being so young, not having a lot of direction and leadership on the Dallas Mavericks at that particular time. There were some leadership changes with the ownership and coaching changes. It cost us being a pretty darn good basketball team for years to come. Dallas Morning News

“Sometimes you’ve got to look in front of you. … We’re here to build something, not to do something in six months,” Kidd said. “This is a bigger picture so we feel that we have a core here that will be around a long time and have success.” “You have to show more film (to younger guys),” Kidd said. “You have to spend a little more time on the floor, because there’s just not enough minutes under some of the guys’ belts when you talk about 20 years old. they just haven’t had enough of seeing what’s in front of them until they strike 22 or 23 years old, then you can say they maybe have seen a lot of things that an 18-, 19-year old hasn’t seen before.” The Brooklyn Game

Kidd was asked about balancing the long-term vision for the team with the desire to make the playoffs this season. "What we've accomplished up to this point, I don't think a lot of people saw this," Kidd said. "We're in a pretty good seat with draft picks. We have a lot of money to spend (in the off-season) and we have pretty much everybody on our roster coming back. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

"There's one guy in Khris (Middleton) who we have in free agency. But we're pretty much in a good seat. You can see on a nightly basis those guys in that locker room believe they're getting better and that they can win." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

The Milwaukee Bucks are known to be among the teams that have interest, in part because coach Jason Kidd has had a front-row seat to some of Kanter's best games in the past two seasons. He averaged 19.5 points and nine rebounds in two games against Kidd's Brooklyn Nets last season, then finished with 23 points and 16 rebounds in Utah's lone game against the Bucks this season. Kidd, it's safe to say, took notice and would love to add him to his group that has been such a pleasant surprise this season (30-23). USA Today Sports
