New York Knicks Don’t Expect Jason Kidd to Retire

Despite hints at this being his final season in the NBA, Jason Kidd’s employer expects him back on the court in 2013-14. The New York Knicks say they have received no indication that Kidd is prepared to walk away from the game (and his contract). Per the NY Post: “‘We had a great meeting with Jason,’ Gm Glen Grunwald said. ‘He was a big part of our success and we look forward to having him back next year.’ Asked if Kidd, 40, hinted about having to reevaluate his future despite two years and $6.2 million left on his pact, Grunwald said, ‘Not yesterday. It sounded like he was coming back.’ However, Mike Woodson piped in, ‘I thought he was [coming back] based on our conversation. But that could change, you never know.’ Tyson Chandler, Kidd’s buddy, said Monday Kidd needed to have a fresh mind before thinking about his future. It’s unlikely Kidd would want to end his Hall-of-Fame career on a 10-game scoreless drought and two consecutive second-half benchings.”

    after such poor performance in playoffs, no way Kidd would want to retire like that

    he did an amazing job during big stretches of the regular season and was also a major factor in some early playoff wins against boston. but the longer the season went on and the more intensive the playoffs got, the more he declined.

    i suspect his shooting struggles and some defensive brain deads to be the result of his conditioning.

    he is in a great condition for a man of his age but that is not enough to compete against most nba players he faces during the nba grind. kidd and camby should retire, they arent doing anybody a favor by staying.

    but more importantly the knicks front office should stop handing out contracts that dont make any sense -.-

    He won’t retire until he makes at least one more basket.
