J Kidd calls it quits in the Knick of time!

Well I never thought i would be happy to see a Hall of fame Knick retire but Jason flame has ran out in N.Y.! I however would offer a non roster mentor-ship role and a job in the organization for his leadership qualities. Potential future coach even but his playing days are done.

We kept hope alive as long as we could however 0 for the playoffs just didn't cut it and Prigioni came in the Knick of time the younger version of the old Kidd. No one was like the young Kidd he did it all but could not find the fountain of youth in N.Y.

Jason Kidd deserves the honor of a future first call HOF'er and a savior for the knick!

He bowed out gracefully after signing a 3 year contract that he could not fulfill as a quality NBA PG.

It takes a lot for a man to pass up on the dollars and just do the honorable thing and to go out after father time came calling!

During his prime, the versatile Kidd was like an instant fast break due to his uncanny court vision, instincts and ability to rebound. The 6-foot-4 Oakland, Calif., native, who was one of the most hyped high school prospects of his generation, had more triple-doubles (107) than anyone outside of Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson.

Kidd averaged 12.6 points, 8.7 assists, 6.3 rebounds and 1.9 steals in 1,391 regular-season games. He took great pride in his ability to make teammates better and his knack for turning teams around.

I think it is the right time," Kidd told ESPNNewYork.com. "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.
