Jazz coach Jerry Sloan knows point guards. He, after all, coached John Stockton, arguably the greatest pure point, and considers Jason Kidd to be in that class.

"He's a tremendous player," said Sloan, who did not coach because of the flu. "He's been around a long time. And he's seen a little bit of everything: double-teams, triple-teams, all that stuff. He still does his thing.

"It's amazing how that works. That's what great players have the ability to do. We saw that with Stockton a few times."

Stockton played until he was 41. One of his best seasons was 1995-96, during which he turned 34. Stockton averaged 14.7 points and 11.2 assists. Kidd will turn 34 next month, and is enjoying one of his finest years.
