In this episode, Brandon Ford discusses Jason Kidd and his late night adventure.
The Dallas Mavericks’ superstar point guard reflects on working for team owner (and billionaire Shark Tank investor) Mark Cuban. “He’s the one who pays the checks, so he can scream and yell at anybody he wants,” Jason Kidd kiddingly tells Hoops in the Sun host Randy Cruz. “But I think people forget he’s a big fan of the game of basketball. And he shows that every night when he’s in the stands cheering, wanting the other team to foul, or wanting us to score. At the end of the day, he wants to win a championship. So it’s great to have a boss like that.”

Last summer, we ran a post on SheridanHoops.com detailing which players received the biggest raises in salary from the previous year. The list was made up of three types of players.
A. Players who received maximum salary deals as their second contracts, such as DeMarcus Cousins.
B. Former first-round picks who received sizable contract extensions, although not necessarily max deals, such as Larry Sanders.
C. Second-round picks who had been making near league minimum and signed new deals, such as Lance Stephenson.
The latter category has some candidates this year as well. Among them are forwards Draymond Green of Golden State, Jae Crowder of Boston and Khris Middleton of Milwaukee.
We've already explained how Middleton's improvement over the last two years and the stratospheric leap made by the Bucks from the worst team in the league to a playoff team could land the restricted free agent a contract averaging eight figures.
But given that Middleton doesn't turn 24 until August, appears to have a ways to go before reaching his ceiling and the huge increase in the salary cap coming in 2016, is it possible that he receives a maximum contract offer this summer, either from the Bucks or another team?
And can the Bucks - who have a dicey new arena issue on their hands - go the max on Middleton, with extensions due down the road for Giannis Antetokounmpo, Michael Carter-Williams and Jabari Parker?
Chris Bernucca of SheridanHoops.com answered those questions and others about an important offseason for the Bucks with Greg Matzek of WTMJ-AM in Milwaukee.

You can feel it inside of you.
There is a message in you that is longing to come out. So why do you hold back?
We were born with a purpose and a passion, but often our own thoughts and fears get in the way of us releasing the message we have been given to the world. We say to ourselves that our lives aren’t that interesting. We have bought into a belief that we are less than others.
Have you ever said to yourself: “I am just a ___________”?
In truth who would you rather learn about how to be a good mom from, a doctor with no kids, or a mom of 3? Who would you rather learn about being a great business person from, a person who has seen hard times in business and come through them or a person with a degree?
No matter what you have been through in life there is a message that has been born out of that journey. The road you have already travelled is a road someone else is just getting ready to step out on.
What we often need is some help. Someone who can step in and help us get out of our own way and really let all of who we are shine!
Today I am joined with an amazing and impactful transformation coach Christine Kloser who works specifically with people to help them release their transformational book to the world. Christine has a proven system that takes people from wanting to be a writer to having a published transformational book. Christine can help you take that message inside of you past the blocks you have put up and out into the world. If you, like most people, know you have a purpose and are wanting to know how to write what is in your down, then today is your day. Right now is the time to stop wishing and find out how to get started.
Listen as Christine Kloser talks with Host Steve Kidd about releasing and birthing your transformational book into the world!
