4 a man his size 2 average those numbers, man. He was like a Magic Jr. Not many people understand the game the way J Kidd does. He just purely is a baller. He simply knows basketball. Knows everything about the game, just one of those veterans you would love 2 absorb knowledge from. Sure thing . DEF. a Hall of Famer.
Got the Shades Ready for All those $hiny Rings

But theres a discussion about Yao > all NBA centers right?
Anyways that reference has T mac on 98% chance of getting HoF which i think is ridiculous so that shows it credibility.
I'm just up in the air about whether Kidd should be in the Hall or not. 3-4 years ago i would have said sure but he never got a ring and unlike some who haven't (Reggie, Ewing, Barkley) he had help (Nowitzki, jefferson, martin, Mutumbo) and unlike someone else who had help and didnt didnt get a ring (Malone and Stockton) they at least made consecutive finals appearences and i think many would agree that if it wasnt for Jordan they would have at least 1.
First off, I'm not really sure that you can consider Martin, Jefferson, Lucious Harris, and Todd McCullough "Help" for an NBA finals team.
Second...JKidd DID take that nets team to consecutive finals.
I'm pretty sure Big O was a SG. Kidd and Isiah are both better than Stockton though. Stockton played so many years which is why he holds the assist record. Because of longevity he has that record and I said if Oscar Robertson is considered a PG he's ahead of Kidd so actually your stupid.
Stockton is better than Kidd, he was and offensive and defensive specialist. He was better than kidd on the offensive end and better than him on the defensive end. Lead the league in steals many many times and shot significantly better than kidd. Its no question who is better. Stockton> KIdd
Dont know if anyone addressed HOOPSADVOCATE but J KIDD did take NETS to back to back FINALS(02/03)against LAKERS/SPURS so he is easily a HOF jus like STOCKTON/MALONE, even without those FINALS trips his career APG/TRIPLE DUBS are crazy...I hope someone addressed that cuz im only respondin from the 1st page
I am gonna say he is in. I feel he deserves to be. However, I am surprised to see that none of the haters point out that he shoots only .402 from the floor. That is terrible. One of the worst of all times.
Aside from the shooting percentage, his game really had no flaw as a PG. He passes with the best of them and was one of the top defensive guards for a while- almost all of his career. Not to mention he is the best rebounding PG (stat-wise) of this generation and he could take games over at crunch time when it is necessary.
The man never had the key parts around him... Vince Carter is an overrated scorer who plays no D. Now with Dirk, Terry, and Howard, he finally has some teammates who can play.
As for his rebounding, I will add this: A decent amount of Kidd's rebounds are not tough rebounds. When he was with the Nets, I went to a ton of his games. His teammates who clear room and Kidd would crash the board- the ball would be in front of the big man and Kidd would just grab it. Not a great skill but it gave him numbers while cutting out any long outlet passes. Whatever, he is still one of the greatest PG's ever.
