    Crazy that these two lasted as long as they did and retired within days of each other. BOTH should be in the HOF.

    Best PG since Magic imo

    Definition of making the guys around him better, had an unreal ability to control the flow of the game.

    Lots of respect for J. Kidd. Wish he came to the Knicks a year or two earlier.

    Great career, but I'll be honest...While I recognize his greatness, he never really appealed to me. *shrugs*

    Let's not forget the Nelly-inspired pun of his name that became my first Niketalk identity 11 years ago. :pimp:
