Jason Kidd hits 90!
12 points, 11 rebounds, and 13 assists...just another night's work for the man known as J-Kidd.
After six consecutive losses dating back to the 10th of November, Jason Kidd (along with the return of teammate Vincent Lamar Carter from an ankle injury) led the New Jersey Nets to a 106-101 victory over the Portland Trailblazers in the Rose Garden.
It was Kidd's 3rd triple-double this season and 90th of his stellar career.
Man! As a member of the New Jersey Nets, Kidd has already amassed 52 triple-doubles to this point.
Jason Kidd may never catch Oscar (Robertson is the all-time leader with triple-doubles with 181) or Magic (Earvin Johnson is second on this short list with 138 "TD's") but he is by far the shortest player among the top five in this decorated group (Wilt Chamberlain is fourth with 78, while Boston's Larry Bird is fifth with 59).
I can see Kidd hitting 100 triple-doubles by the end of the year...
So what's next?
Jason catching his idol Magic Johnson at 138?
Well, we all can dream can't we...
One thing is for sure, it's going to be a very exciting ride...no matter the outcome.
