7. Jason Kidd
One of the truest point guards to play the game, Jason Kidd orchestrated the offense like few other point guards in NBA history have.
It goes without saying that Kidd could really do it all. He finished with career numbers of 12.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 8.7 assists, and 1.9 steals per game. Further, Kidd was selected to 10 NBA All-Star teams, five All-NBA First Teams, and four NBA All-Defensive Teams. He led the league in assists five times and is second all-time in career assists. Kidd won his lone NBA championship with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011.
Kidd will forever be loved especially in Nets fans hearts, as he was the ringleader of the team during their winning years. He led the franchise to its only two championship appearances, and ultimately turned their team and hopes around. The team saw a 26 game improvement in Kidd’s first season (2001), and never turned back until he was traded in 2008. His #5 was retired by the team.
Kidd is most famous for his elite level of passing, but it is often overlooked that he was much more than just a passer. Kidd is surely one of the greatest of all time at the position.
