DALLAS -- Mark Cuban said it took a little lobbying from the Dallas Mavericks to get Jason Kidd an invitation to his 10th All-Star Game.

"But once we laid it out, [NBA officials] were really excited about it," Cuban said.

Kidd, who planned on spending the break at his Arizona home, wasn't so excited initially when Cuban called to ask him to return to Dallas.

"I’m golfing. It’s 70 degrees," Kidd told Cuban. "What do you want me to come back for?"

Cuban's reply: "No. 10."

Upon hearing that, Kidd immediately agreed to get back to Dallas, although not necessarily as soon as possible.

"Can I leave tomorrow morning?" he asked Cuban. "I need to get another round of golf in."
