Brian Phillips, that Run of Play fellow, drops by GQ.com to love the way Jason Kidd moves:

Chris Paul, Steve Nash, even Derrick Rose when he’s charting his own route to the basket—these guys give you the sense that being a point guard means having the freedom to do math in space. Watching them, you’re plotting the vectors of moving objects with the holograms in your head. With Kidd, you get the sense that playing the point means diving into some nether-realm where no one else can go … He’s 6-foot-4, and he plays like he’s three feet underground.

There’s more where that came from!
