I grew up watching JKidd play ball in the swamp. He's my favorite player to watch in any sport ever. Those early 2000's Nets were unbelievable. Used to play run and gun the right way. Forced lots of turnovers.

I'm glad I don't have to watch him on the Knicks anymore. He's a Net. He always will be. They should retire his #5 in Brooklyn next year. Also, not that he'd be ready to do it now, but he'd make a great coach if he wanted to.

What? Of course it doesn't.

Salary doesn't count against cap. He's voluntarily retiring. Which means no more contract, no more payments, and no salary cap hit.

Might be different if retiring for medical reasons, but not in this case.



Anywho, this sucks. I thought Kidd had one more year in him, despite his playoff disappearnce. Don't forget, he played really well most of the year until the playoffs.

Sucks. Kidd retires and Camby doesn't. Hopefully Kidd retiring convinces Pablo to stay as we'll need more than ever now. More playing time.

JKidd was one of those players that teammates love, coaches love and fans love. Tough as nails man

I wish we could have seen the Penny Hardaway and the Sun Dance Kidd backcourt play together healthy for a little while in Phx, i think the entire NBA felt jipped by missing that

Exactly. As soon as signed his contract, he pocketed at least $10 million knowing he'll do nothing.....what a waste.

LOL, I was about to say that finally, I'm older than every player in the NBA, but I forgot about Camby.

He's the only player in the league now who's older than me. Damn, now I feel old.

What a career. Man it was an honor to have someone I always admired to end his career on my team.

Hopefully he remains with the team as an assistant coach.
