As commentators have alluded to in the past few days, he makes other players on the floor want to pass the ball and make their teammates better, and get even more open shots if theyre available with the next pass. Its not Kidd creating these shots, but its the rhythm thats created with his decision making and unselfishness that has really helped the knicks offence take off.

JR Smith has made more extras passes this year than in his entire career combined for wide open 3s, when hes had the opportunity to take his usual semi contested 3s, and he instinctively passes it to his teammate for an even better look. This definitely comes from Kidd.

And Kidd may be the best 3 point shooter in the NBA right now. He has absolutely no hesitation when hes wide open, and his shot is pure.
