But I thought he was open for threes?!?

Simmons podcast discussed him passing up on the Spurs to go to (stay with) the Nets so his wife could try to launch a television career.  I would love to follow that alternate timeline and see how it worked out for Kidd, the Spurs, and his now ex-wife if he had signed with SA.

This will give him more time to devote to beating his wife.

Worse for the Spurs... probably.  Parker turned out to be terrific, but then they might have won exactly the same amount of championships (2 more after that point in 2003), although Parker did win the Finals MVP in 2007 against a craptacular Cleveland Cavaliers backcourt.

Kidd, at least, wound up finally winning a ring himself with the Mavs.

So I guess that leaves Juwan Howard as the final remaining player from the 1994 NBA draft class? Though I'm guessing he'll retire soon as well (or at least a de facto retirement due to inability to find a team).

I would imagine he is still on teams because he is a great locker room/practice/character guy.  Teams need guys like that.

It was time. He's so old, he couldn't beat his wife off the dribble.

Well, considering his wife's idea of launching a television career was attending all of the Nets games with their jerseyed rugrat, I believe the whole family has a problem with career planning.

But I have to admit It led to one the most trollerific moments in ESPN after Bob Ryan called the wife out for being an attention whore and lugging that baby around like an accessory, which was pretty much true but the PC police at Boston Globe suspended him for a while. The day after Ryan's suspension, Jason Kidd was on Sunday Conversation...with jerseyed rugrat on his lap the whole time.

Least you got ONE ring out of it, Kidd. Good luck on your future ventures.

tbh, he seems like the kind of guy that's going to go pretty much straight from playing to coaching because of that.  He's got a good head, work effort and leadership.

Ah, Jason Kidd. I never did quite figure out what race you are.

kinda true for 'Melo.  a large part of him wanting to go to NYC was his wife's career.  wonder how that plays out had he stayed in Denver.

also, I somewhat recall Phoenix fans throwing french fries on the floor when he returend after his DV arrest.  one of the strange tidbits in that incident was I think he was eating his son's McD's french fries, which pissed his wife off, and then I think in the melee he threw french fries at her.  some weird angle about that.

Good God, the memories.  I forgot about that huge-cranium'd little kid.

Oh man... Now that Hill and Kidd both retired, that means there are no players left in the NBA that were in the original NBA Jam.

Shoulda retired after the 2011 season on a high note.

Hate to break it to you, but that was already the case. The original NBA Jam was released in 1993 before Kidd or Hill had played a day in the NBA.

Going by the original arcade rosters listed here, I think Shaq was actually the last player to be active.

Ah yes. I was speaking of the SNES/Genesis versions that I played growing up, which aren't technically the "original". My mistake.

The idea is to let him shoot instead of driving, there he is most dangerous
