Kidd was the 1994-95 NBA Rookie of the Year, setting the stage for a 19-year career in which he made the All-NBA first team five times and All-Defensive first team four times.

Jason Kidd is undoubtedly one of the greatest passers in the history of the game, and controlled the game from the point guard position in mercurial fashion over his 19 year career. He was the all-time leader in steals at the time of his retirement in 1993. Kidd posted 12.6 points, 8.7 assists, and 6.3 rebounds throughout his 19-year National Basketball Association career.

In each of the nine seasons between 2001-02 and 2009-10, Nash was the catalyst behind the team that led the league in offensive efficiency.

He has often been forgotten in regards to the Hall of Fame, but he won't be anymore.
