Isn't It Ironic -- The Jason Kidd Edition

Remember that Alanis Morisette song "Ironic"? You know, the song where she lists random things that actually aren't ironic at all. Originally, the lyric "It's like rain on your wedding day" was "It's like Jason Kidd filing for divorce against your wife citing abuse when you have beat her in the past."

OK, for that to be true, Morisette would have had to be able to see the future. And it probably wouldn't have fit lyrically. Nonetheless, it is going on and it is ironic.

Nets point guard Jason Kidd is filing for divorce because his wife was mentally and physically abusive. Now, he may not be the tallest guy in the NBA but you would think J-Kidd would be able to defend himself against his wife -- then again, his back has been bothering him so maybe that's the case. I guess she could be one of those crazy bitches who scratch and slap when she gets angry.

Kidd also claimed his wife filed fake domestic abuse claims. If it's true, great. I'd love to root for a guy who didn't actually beat his wife. I mean, I'm going to root for him one way or another since I'm a Nets fan, but not to have any moral hangover would be excellent. There's a good chance Kidd did beat his wife in the past, but I'm not going to dwell on that. If I have a chance to look at one of my team stars in a better light, I'm going to take it.

Hopefully, this personal problem won't screw up Kidd's play for the rest of the season. The Nets are pretty lousy as it is, but Kidd has been one of the few consistent players on the team. If they lose that, it'll be a long rest of the year.

However, no matter how long it is, at least we won't have to see Juamana Kidd and TJ Kidd courtside anymore. That had sure run its course.
