Watch these highlights and try not to lose your shit. In his prime, Jason Kidd was the best point guard in the league. He was one of those players that was able to affect the game without scoring. With virtually no jumpshot, Kidd was still able to beat you. At 40, he's still the smartest player in the league and has turned himself into a deadly three-point shooter (third all-time in makes and attempts).

Kidd threw mind-boggling passes, had a killer crossover, had sticky fingers, and would hit improbable lay-ups like it was normal. He was also fast as hell, once he got the ball in the open floor it was pretty much over. Jason did what he wanted with the ball in his hands. He currently sits third in minutes played all-time and is second in assists and steals all-time. He also throws some of the best alley-oops in the game.
