Kidd Could Retire If NBA Enters Lockout
If the NBA enters a lockout and the 2011-12 season is canceled, Jason Kidd said he’ll likely retire. With just a month left before the playoffs start, Kidd doesn’t know if his playing days will be over by the end of June.
Kidd turns 38 on Wednesday, and has said that he'd like to play until he's 40.
“This could be it because it would be hard to come back after a lockout,” Kidd told Yahoo! Sports. “I would probably move on and join the next chapter of what I would be doing in life. But I hope that isn’t the case where it just ended without having one more season.”
Kidd admits he could be facing a dilemma. His strong relationship with famed hotel and casino financier Steve Wynn also could lead to a new career opportunity.
