BREAKING: Knicks’ Kidd retires from NBA


Future Hall of Fame point guard Jason Kidd announced his retirement from the NBA Monday after 19 years in the league. Kidd played one year with the Knicks to wrap up a legendary career in which he played for the Mavericks, Nets, and Suns. Let’s take a look at Jason Kidd’s storied career in numbers:

  • NBA champion
  • 2nd all-time leader in assists
  • 2nd all-time leader in steals
  • 3rd all-time leader in triple-doubles
  • 3rd all-time leader in three-pointers
  • 10 time All-Star
  • 6 time All-NBA selection
  • Rookie of the Year
  • Naismith High School Player of the Year
  • 9 time All-Defensive selection
  • All-rookie team
  • All-Star Skills Challenge winner
  • Olympic Gold Medalist

Kidd’s career is over, and his retirement probably came at the right time. He will be remembered as one of the greatest, smartest players to ever play the game and will be inducted into the Hall of Fame 5 years from now. His salary will come off the books for the Knicks immediately. Congratulations to Jason on a magnificent career, and hopefully we will see him in a coaching spot soon.
