Ranking the Dallas Mavericks Hall of Famers:  1. Jason Kidd

The Mavs current head coach was one of the best point guards in NBA history. His Hall of Fame playing career is one of the reasons they wanted him coaching Luka Doncic. Kidd was drafted by the Mavericks second overall in 1994, and he won Rookie of the Year and was an All-Star before being traded to Phoenix in the middle of his third season. There was plenty of drama in Dallas, and Kidd became an all-time great in Phoenix and New Jersey.

J-Kidd rejoined the Mavericks in 2008, and he helped Dirk Nowitzki win the championship in 2011 before departing for the Big Apple. Kidd is back for a third stint in Dallas, but this time, he plays the role of head coach for Luka Doncic and company.

Kidd made ten All-Star appearances, and he was on the All-Defensive teams nine times. He led the league in assists five times, and the 6’4 guard was unquestionably one of the 75 greatest players of all time.

The Dallas Mavericks would not have a championship without Jason Kidd, and he is trying to bring the franchise a second one as head coach. He is using his basketball IQ to build something special in Dallas, and fans should be excited about the present and future of the team after their run to the conference finals last season.
