Jason Kidd will turn 40 tomorrow, and the veteran guard might be out of the league as soon as next year.

When asked how much longer Kidd will go on, he says that he is truly taking it a year at the time. He signed a 3-year deal with the New York Knicks at the beginning of this season, but it wouldn’t surprise anyone if Kidd decided to leave the game of basketball prior to the expiration of his contract.

This is his 21st NBA season, and he has still found ways to contribute to the aging Knicks’ roster. Kidd has started in 48 of his 61 appearances this season, averaging 6.6 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 27.1 minutes per game. Quite admirable stats, especially considering his age.

Considering Kidd’s resume, he could very well play out his contract, but father time is slowly catching up to him.
