Hours after getting drunk and signing with the Knicks, Jason Kidd sobered up long enough to remember he had signed with the Knicks, then drank away his sorrows. Kidd capped off the self-proclaimed “worst day of my life” by getting behind the wheel of his Escalade and crashing it into a tree.

“I didn’t have the Breathylizer in the car because it was in the shop,” arresting East Hampton, NY police officer Bill Berard said. “But since he had just signed with a terrible franchise and the car was wrapped around a tree, we can all figure out what happened. You gotta be drunk to voluntarily team up with those guys.”
