If all you have ever seen of Jason Kidd is the guy from the last few years, from his second stint with the Dallas Mavericks and his short run with the Knicks… man, you missed out.
Kidd, who announced his retirement Monday, was the best point guard of his generation. Better than Nash, better than anyone you can think of from his generation. And this video that goes all the way back to some high school and college clips shows that.
Enjoy. And thank you Kidd, from those of us who love the game. You were a joy to watch.
