A triple-double threat every time he stepped on the court, Jason Kidd was a different breed of point guard equally capable of scoring, passing, or rebounding to secure the win. The Bay Area has a history of producing great guards and Kidd was no exception, becoming a consensus First-Team All-America at the University of California. Kidd was drafted second overall in 1994 by the Dallas Mavericks where he displayed his versatile game and defensive prowess earning Co-Rookie of the Year honors. As a pass-first point guard, J-Kidd always found a way of getting his teammates involved leading the league in assists per game five times and finishing his career second on the all-time assists list. The 10-time All-Star led the New Jersey Nets to back-to-back Finals appearances in 2002 and 2003 before capturing an NBA title in 2011 after returning to Dallas. Kidd won two Olympic gold medals with Team USA in 2000 and 2008, securing his place as one of the greatest point guards in history.
