19 seasons, 10 all-star appearances, 2 gold metals, and one NBA championships later….

New York Knicks veteran point guard, Jason Kidd announces that “it is time” to retire from the NBA! After a relaxing weekend in Georgia, Kidd sat down with his agent and came to the decision to hang up his kicks an begin a new chapter in his life…

When you think about 19 years, it has been a heckuva ride. Physically, I want to be able to participate in activities with my kids so it has taken a toll. It is time to move on and think about maybe coaching or doing some broadcasting.

Kidd is sure to be an hall of famer, and will leave his footprints in NBA history, finishing 2nd all-time assist and steal leader behind John Stockton.

Props to ESPN for the story…
