Jason Kidd is one of the greatest point guards of all-time. And after last season he’s an NBA Champion. But on Monday he also added another significant accolade to his resume. The Mavericks guard passed Michael Jordan for the #2 spot on the NBA all-time steals list. Kidd had these humble words to say about his achievement…
“Well because Mike is everybody’s idol, he played both ends of the court,” Kidd said about passing Jordan. “Just being able to pass him in something is an honor in itself. When you talk about defense, he played both sides of the ball. (John) Stockton and Jordan are the two best at what they do. When you talk about guards, those two are the best all-time.”
Kidd finished the game with three steals, bringing his career total to 2,517.
“I’ve just been in the right place at the right time, understanding guys’ tendencies, watching film early on in my career and just been lucky to be in the league long enough to get in the way of some passes,” Kidd said.
