Jason Kidd Cover pic

Jason Kidd collided with Indiana guard Lance Stephenson in the first quarter of Sunday’s game.  It appeared that Stephenson’s tooth hit the side of Kidd’s head, resulting in a sizeable cut that needed seven stitches to close a gash on the side of his head.

The cut forced Kidd to wear a headband to keep the blood out of his eyes and apparently he had no idea how to wear it.  It looked so crazy that the headband that had its own Twitter account by the end of the game. Lol.  Check out the pics and what Carmelo Anthony & Kidd both had to say about it after the game…


“Not a good look,” Carmelo Anthony said. “Today he had to do what he had to do, but we’re not going to allow that.”

Kidd played only 3 minutes before he was hit in the head by Lance Stephenson’s teeth after a pump fake and bloodied while attempting a 3-pointer. He put a headband over the wound so he could shoot the free throws, wearing it in a lopsided manner that was angled more like a bonnet, even laughing himself at how ugly it looked.

“Yeah, that’s not my style,” said the 39-year-old Kidd, wearing a bandage on the right side of his head. “I’ll leave that to the guys who like the headband.”

He made the shots, then went to the back to get seven stitches.
