Kidd: ‘I would like to get to 20 (Years)’
Not so fast. Who’s saying (Jason) Kidd plans on calling it a career any time soon? After completing the first practice Friday of his 18th NBA season — and final one under contract with the Dallas Mavericks — Kidd said he wants to play 20 seasons.
“I would like to get to 20,” said Kidd, who turns 39 in March. “I think that would be a great feat through everybody forgetting my name and always just calling me old. You can call me ’20′ at that point. I think it’ll be something. As a kid, you just think about playing. When you look back at it if you can go past eight years than your like, ‘Man I had a great career.’ Now it’s going on 18, so why stop now?”
