Mark Cuban confirmed recently that Jason Kidd, a nine-time All Star basketball player, was re-signed to the Mavericks. We're excited as the Big D is where he began and could potentially end his career. A $25 million contract grants Kidd the good life for at least three more years in Dallas. With that kind of purchasing power, it wouldn't be a surprise to see the 6'4" point guard at some of the nicest places in town. Although most of us can't high roll like Jason, you may be lucky enough to visit one of these luxury stops sometime. If so, keep your eye out for this millionaire Maverick.

Anyone can appreciate the privacy and luxurious treatment that the V-Spa offers, especially a court-pounding celebrity like Kidd. He could use a deluxe massage at the Verandah spa within the esteemed Hilton Anatole, where crowned heads have even stayed. A foot soak, an elixir and a ginger neck pillow preceding 80 minutes of touch therapy is sure to bring back anyone's game.
The anchor restaurant within The Ritz Carlton has the perfect menu to satisfy an athlete's hunger. A chic background with discreet areas to dine and drink is perfect for a high-profile person. Kidd can dine on maple-black peppercorn-soaked buffalo tenderloin and finish off with peach and cherry sorbet popsicles---he should be able to afford the Ritzy prices--and the calories, too.
A drink on the lavish Mansion bar could help Kidd swallow a rare low-pointer night. Discreet and distinguished, this country club-style bar has a comfortable feel for a guest of Kidd's status. So if the game was disappointing, a cocktail here should bring back his spirits and a $60 vintage port shouldn't make him call foul.
Kidd is one of a kind--just like each of the Aston Martin models showcased at this dealership. Dallas has the only standalone gallery with a service complex and an exclusive owner's lounge. Only the privileged can consider a transaction of such magnitude but those who can are treated like an All Star and feel like a celebrity in a new ride.
