Jason Kidd Getting His Nets Jersey Retired
Jason Kidd is not only the new coach of the Brooklyn Nets, a minority share owner of the Brooklyn Nets, but he will also have his no. 5 jersey retried on October 17th against the Miami Heat.
Kidd will now join the rafters with players such as Drazen Petrovic and Julius Irving.
“This is a very humbling honor and one that I will always cherish," Kidd said. "There can be no greater recognition of an athlete's time with any team than to have his number retired, and this gesture by the Nets organization validates a very significant portion of my career that was spent as a player with this franchise."
Despite only playing six years for the New Jersey Nets, Kidd led the Nets to two consecutive Finals appearances in 2002 and 2003. And if he can be half the coach that he was the player, the sky is the ceiling for this up and coming Nets team.
