'90s Highlights

Kidd couldn't shoot to save his life when he first came in the league, but he was still able to lead the NBA in triple-doubles his rookie year. He has an uncanny ability to make everyone around him better. Along with Jamal Mashburn and Jim Jackson, Kidd made the Dallas Mavericks relevant again (they were nice in the '80s!). For whatever reason the three couldn't get along and the band broke up. Kidd was dealt to Phoenix where he continued to rack up triple-doubles left and right. He's one of the best rebounding point guards the game has ever seen and we're pretty sure he has eyes behind his head. Jason had a couple games in his career where he didn't score on purpose. He wanted to show the world that you can make an impact by being unselfish. Kidd continued his Hall of Fame level play in the 2000s.
