I haven't seen him step up and dominate a game yet. Kidd hasn't had the talent Nash has, but he did make it and had the misfortune of meeting a healthy Shaq and Kobe, so I might be wrong about him.
That said, I like the Suns' chance. Tim Duncan, while still formidable, is not in his prime; now he relies a bit too much on a "flip-the-switch" approach a.k.a Shaq for my taste. Tony Parker and Manu are solid, but the latter way inconsistent. And Popovich can only do so much.
