New York Knicks star Jason Kidd does NOT believe his drunk driving case in New York will have any affect on his performance in the upcoming NBA season ... at least that's what he told us on the way into court this morning.
A well-dressed Kidd -- along with his legal team -- rolled in to the Southampton Town Justice Court to handle business related to his July 15 arrest ... when cops say he drunkenly slammed his 2010 Cadillac Escalade into a telephone poll around 2 AM.
Kidd had already entered a not guilty plea in the case.
Jason was also asked if he had anything to say to his young fans -- but that question was met with pure silence.
