Jason Kidd has flourished off the hardwood, too!

Rightfully claiming to have “achieved everything” on the hardwood, New York Knicks guard Jason Kidd may retire at the end of the season.

“I’m taking it one year at a time,” said Kidd, 40, who the Dallas Mavericks chose second overall out of the University of California in the 1994 NBA Draft. “I’ve achieved everything.”

As a 10-time All-Star, five-time All-NBA First Team selection and 2011 NBA titlist, Kidd is the only ballplayer to amass at least 15,000 points, 7,000 rebounds, and 10,000 assists in his career.

Playing for four organizations since debuting as a professional, the 6-foot-4, 210 pound Kidd has averaged 12.7 points, 8.8 assists and 6.3 rebounds over 1,276 games.

Ideally for Knicks fans, Hope Dworaczyk’s former banging companion will help New York capture a Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy for the first time since 1973 before shelving the sneaks.

Regardless, playing strictly for the love of hoops, Jason Kidd deserves to “(take) it one year at a time.”
