Don't see why he can't....Stockton was a starting point guard at 40. Kidd's passing and IQ aren't going to diminish with age, so he'll still have some value as long as he's physically able to withstand the grind of an NBA season. Nash is 37 and putting up 15 and 11....no reason he can't play till 40 either.

That is a stretch, but barring any significant injury, I think 2 years is really realistic. He is pretty slow now, and I dont think he will get significantly slower in a few years. He has adapted his game to his decline in athletic ability and he is still sharp as a whistle. In year 3, I think he will be having a rough time physically with the rigors of the NBA, but probably have the Stockton type of year he had in his final few seasons.

the thing with old age is that players don't decline gradually.

their game production sorta just nose-dive suddenly one day. it can happen so fast when they can't fight off an injury anymore like when they were younger.

not saying he definitely won't make it, but odds are against him, especially at his position to have that much longetivity. and sometimes it's out of his hands. doubt he will be lazy at all, but injuries can come in as bad luck anytime at his phase.

I feel that his work ethic has allowed him to play this long at a high level and when you are in prime shape, you are able to avoid more injuries. But no matter how great of shape you are in, if you get an injury at old age, it will be tough to come back from.

I disagree with a lot of these posts that Kidd plays at a high level.


Many minutes he camps at the top of the key or becomes a supporting PG in case his teammates get in trouble.

This is smart basketball , but it takes (or saves) him from constantly making plays for his teammates.
If you didn't notice , the majority of the PG drives to the rake or opening passing lanes in the finals was done by JJ.

Kidd , spent more time throwing up open 3's than doing per say PG duties of driving and dishing.
------------------------
If he was smart , he would of retired when he was on top , now he'll play a year , and the facts will set in , no matter how much water he drinks , his legs has ton's of miles on him.
A one year hurray tour is all , but that.
