Jason Kidd: ‘I want to play another year’
Jason Kidd has played in 24 career homecoming games on the road against the Golden State Warriors in his 18 seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns and New Jersey Nets.
Yet Kidd insisted Wednesday, on the eve of the Mavericks’ second and final visit of the season to Golden State, that Thursday night’s nationally televised showdown on TNT won’t be his last game on Oakland hardwood.
“I want to play another year,” Kidd told ESPN.com.
Despite turning 39 on March 23 and struggling throughout this lockout-shortened season with various back, calf and groin ailments that have shelved him for 15 games — including the Mavericks’ previous trip to Oakland on March 10 — Kidd says he’s determined to play on to try to help Dallas add to the breakthrough championship it won last season.
