The Kidd watch is back.
With a nifty pass to Dallas Mavericks teammate Josh Howard in the first quarter of their game against the Portland Trailblazers, Jason Kidd passed legend Oscar Robertson (9,887) for fourth place on the all-time assist ladder. Yahoo.com reports that Robertson was the career leader in assists when he hung up his sneakers in 1974.
Up next is Kidd's idol, Earvin Magic Johnson (10,141) whom Kidd could also surpass based on his current 8.3 assists per game average. Early next season, J-Kidd can move into second place on career assists by passing Mark Jackson (10,334).
It is interesting however if the soon to be 36 year-old Jason Kidd will play long enough to break the all-time record set by the Utah Jazz' John Stockton (15,806).
Kidd finished the game with 10 assists.
