New Jersey Nets: The NBA Finals may just be beginning, but the free agent frenzy may already be coming to an end if Jason Kidd's wife has anything to say about it. "Once we made it through the playoffs and now we're in The Finals, a little bit of that queasiness is gone," Joumana Kidd told the NY Post. "Now I'm feeling the chances are even stronger. I don't want to move. I don't want to pack up the house and move. Any NBA wife can relate to it, having to start over with the kids." Center Dikembe Mutombo is still lobbying to get off the milk carton and on the floor. "I can't picture myself just sitting on the bench in an NBA championship for 48 minutes of basketball," Mutombo told the Rocky Mountain News. "I don't see that. I'm feeling very confident that I will play." New Jersey head coach Byron Scott, though, isn't so sure. "As far as how much Dikembe will play, I can't answer that," Scott said. "I'm going to stick with the same rotation I've stuck with throughout the playoffs, but there's a chance he could play."
