The Nets FINALLY Retire Jason Kidd's No. 5 Jersey [VIDEO]

E.S.P.JEN

The Brooklyn Nets, formerly known as the New Jersey Nets, showed their new head coach and former player Jason Kidd major love by retiring his no. 5 jersey before their pre-season game, Thursday night.

Kidd's banner was raised to the rafters before the Nets squared off in a pre-season game against the Miami Heat.

Kidd announced his retirement from basketball after 19 season this past June, and announced he'd be taking the head coaching position for the Brooklyn Nets two weeks later.

Congrats, Jason Kidd!
