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.

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.”
