With his 4 3s last night he's now 3rd All Time Behind Reggie Miller and Ray Allen. Really good accomplishment for someone who wasn't known as a consistent 3 point threat and has only made more than 150 for 3 pointers once in his career which was just last season. Speaks to his longevity as much as anything else.

:clap:

Yeah, good for him. And I have always heard that he isn't a threat from downtown and how inconsistent he is. But he can't be that bad even if the three point line has only been in effect for 30 years or so.

The ason kidd jokes are long gone! lol, It really is commendable how much he's improved it, you see so many people come in the league that are not stronger shooters and a vast amount of them remain that way to an extent.

Congrats Jason Kidds Corpse.


I think him and Nash will stick around until early 40's honestly.

He will move up to 19 after one more three and then 18 After 6 more. He could easily finish his career in top 10.:)

this doesnt really mean that much, just that he is average 3 point shooter who is an ultimate chucker

its amazing how far he has come with his shot.

Kidd has gotten better at the 3-pointer because since the knee surgery in '04, Kidd now takes the 3-pointer as a set shot.

Prior to the surgery, he most often took the 3-pointer as a pullup jump shot.

Not really. Its a testament to his sustained prime, and his major improvements over the past number of years outside the line. While he has always sucked at long 2's, he has continually brought up his free throw and three point percentage over his career, and ended up with a good looking TS% over the past 5-6 years.

totally agreed. And he would hammer it long cause it had minimal arc. Now he just sets, and releases. Couldn't agree more

even though this is mainly due to longevity, im very impressed
had no idea he was that close to Ray and Reggie.

No, its a testimony to his longevity.

If longevity carried no weight, KAJ could have retired at 35, with three less championships and a point total that would have been good enough for 5th all time.

Congrats to J-KIDD one of all time great PG's.

Why Kidd never bothered to become a good 3pt shooter until it was too late is beyond me.

I`m surprised to read this...i dind`t know Jason for being a 3 point threat, in my eyes he is/maybe was the triple double machine
