Mark Cuban’s public stance on Jason Kidd’s retirement? Silence. His private stance?
'Cube reached out and sent me a nice note,' Kidd tells 105.3 The Fan. 'Cube is one of, if not the, best owner in sports. We were lucky to be with him when we won that championship.' And maybe, if the ice thaws, both sides can consider themselves lucky to reunite?

Without flash, Jason Kidd elevated the play of team after team
On Monday, Jason Kidd announced his retirement from the NBA. Let's take a look back into his playing days at Cal with this mixtape.
Jason Kidd retired on Monday after 19 seasons. He’s an NBA champion, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, a 10-time all-star, a future hall of famer and, of course, a local product. He’ll go down as one of the greatest all-around point guards to ever play the game. But on this day Kidd says farewell to basketball, here is a list of the things I’ll most remember about his career...

With the recent retirement of Jason Kidd it seems like a good time to address the future of Pablo Prigioni with the New York Knicks. If it wasn’t obvious that the Knicks needed to retain Prigioni before, it has become even more evident now. Prigioni emerged as a bright spot for the Knicks this season after coming over from Europe.

The Knicks have only begun pre-draft workouts, but a wide variety of prospects have already been seen, with an even more diverse group of players set to continuing strolling in as the weeks go on.So far, New York has worked out potential first-round selections, some likely second-rounders, and even a handful that just may fall below the radar (like Norvel Pelle, pictured above),...
With Jason Kidd’s retirement earlier this week, Kevin Garnett becomes the active leader in minutes (47,801) and games played (1,323).
At 37, KG isn’t the league’s oldest player. Kurt Thomas (40), Juwan Howard (40), Steve Nash (39), Derek Fisher (38) and Jerry Stackhouse (38) are all clinging to their respective careers. Nash is the only one of the group with a contract for...
