Jason Kidd Retires From Basketball [VIDEO]
New York Knicks point guard Jason Kidd has decided to retire after playing 19 years for four teams.
The legendary player released a statement this morning that read,
“My time in professional basketball has been an incredible journey, but one that must come to an end after 19 years. As I reflect on my time with the four teams I represented in the N.B.A., I look back fondly at every season and thank each and every one of my teammates and coaches that joined me on the court.”
Kidd will be considered one of the best point guards to ever play the game of basketball. Through his career he has been a 10 time all-star, won the NBA championship in 2011, and finishes with the second most assists in history.
He played with the Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks, New Jersey Nets, and New York Knicks.
