Jason Kidd has been a selfless player for the USA on and off the court in Beijing by sharing his experience and the basketball.
And he is set to dish out a big handoff if the Americans return to basketball supremacy today by beating Spain for the gold medal.
Kidd promised Elaine Wynn, wife of casino mogul Steve Wynn, that he would give her his newest Olympic medal if the Americans fulfill the redeem dream.
"It's not a (gambling) marker or anything like that," Kidd told The Arizona Republic. "She's just a great friend and a really great person."
They met last year when Kidd and the USA team stayed at the Wynn while training in Las Vegas.
"Last summer, we stayed at the Wynn for (what seemed like) a lifetime, close to three weeks," Kidd said. "We met at a banquet, we got to talking, and she really understands the game.
