Dallas Mavericks guard Jason Kidd said he'll consider retirement after this season on Monday.The 38-year-old is in his 18th NBA season and has missed 10 games this season because of injury and fatigue. He's averaging a career-low 5.1 points ger game."My goal was to get to 20 years, but if I can't compete and help a team or help develop a younger point guard then I have to move aside," Kidd said.Kidd also said that it would be great to back up New Jersey Nets guard Deron Williams. New Jersey is moving to a new stadium in Brooklyn next season."I know he'll play 40 minutes so I can give him an eight-minute break. Wherever he ends up- whether it's in Brooklyn or Dallas- that franchise has a great point guard."Kidd, a free agent after this season, told reporters that he'd like to stay in Dallas if he decides to play, or "he'd see" if an opportunity to join Brooklyn presented itself next year.

With last year’s NBA champions not doing as hot as they played last season and players on the team ranking up careers lows in statistics. It maybe time for some Dallas Mavericks veterans to think of their future NBA plans.

I’ve been highly critical of Jason Kidd this year. It’s impossible not to be. He’s shooting 32 percent from the field, can’t guard anyone anymore and the the Mavs’ offense has been 4.9 points per 100 possessions better without him on the floor. But even I’m a little surprised the 10-time All-Star is so openly [...]

Once upon a time Jason Kidd was a very good point guard. In fact, there were those who said he was the best point guard on the planet. But that was then and this is now. And now he's even better.
Then, the only hole in his otherwise awesome game (actually more of a nit-pick than a hole) was that he wasn't a good shooter, didn'...

DALLAS — Nets’ All-Star Deron Williams never has tried to hide his admiration for Jason Kidd.
“Jason Kidd was a guy I grew up watching,” Williams said before the Nets’ 93-92 victory over the Mavericks Tuesday night. “Guys you grew up watching, you tried to emulate. They definitely had an influence...
