The end of an era is over, and for a lot of us, our true ages are coming out. After 19 years as one of the top point guards in the game, Jason Kidd has announced his retirement from the game of basketball.
“My time in professional basketball has been an incredible journey, but one that must come to an end after 19 years,” Kidd said in a statement released by the Knicks. “As I reflect on my time with the four teams I represented in the NBA, I look back fondly at every season and thank each every one of my teammates and coaches that joined me on the court.”
Kidd made 10 All-Star Game appearances, and played the 2012-13 season with the New York Knicks, averaging 6.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists.
Kidd finishes his career ranked second in the NBA with 12,091 assists and 2,684 steals.
