NYTIMES.comJason Kidd, one of the greatest point guards to play in the N.B.A., announced his retirement Monday, two weeks after a disappointing end to his first season with the Knicks.
First of all, wow, what a career. Glad I had the privilege to watch one of the greatest players of all-time from start to finish.
Ujiri should now pick up the phone and ask Jason if he would be interested in working with the guards and wings during the summer and sometimes during the winter. He could teach them perimeter defense, strategy, even some of the tricks that he was successful using. These are the kinds of opportunities the Raptors needs to entertain.
Most these fierce competitors have a hard time letting go of the game and now is the time to capitalize or at least get the idea out there to Kidd.
