New York Knicks guard Jason Kidd turned 40 today. A milestone age, but considered an old man by NBA standards. Kidd joined the exclusive active 40 year old active NBA club, joining Kurt Thomas, Juwan Howard, and Grant Hill.
Kidd has put together a Hall of Fame career, but one has to wonder when he will decide to call it quits. According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, this could be the last year.
Kidd, however, is not ready to commit beyond this season. Although he signed a three-year contract with the Knicks last summer, he isn’t ruling out retirement at season’s end. Several people close to Kidd have said they wouldn’t be surprised if Kidd, now a backup for the first time in his Hall of Fame career, decides to walk away.
“I don’t know,” Kidd told the Daily News. “I’m taking it one year at a time.”
