The Dallas Mavericks drafted Jason Kidd (3/23/1977) as the 2nd overall pick in the 1994 NBA Draft.
Jason Kidd (aka J-Kidd, aka Ason Kidd, aka The Engine, aka The Kidd, aka Mr. Triple Double) is a 10 times All-Star, 9-time All-Defensive Team, 6-time All-NBA Team, 1994 Rookie of the Year, and won the NBA title 2010… he is one of the games best to say the lease.
Kidd is considered one of the top well-rounded pure point guards of all time in the NBA and a top floor general… if we had one player to lead a team, Kidd would be in the top 5.

Buyers Rating and Investment Outlook
Jason Kidd was one hell of a player and had a stellar NBA career.
Many forget he beat LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh in 2011 to win his only NBA Championship ring with the Dallas Mavericks.
The worth of his rookie cards is held back by his less-than-gaudy points-per-game scoring numbers and the fact he only has one ring.
The sad fact of the matter is a player who scores a ton of points (i.e., James Harden) usually gets more love vs a player who makes his team better via assists, rebounds, and floor leadership.
J-Kidd rookie cards will increase in value long term but not enough to make us buyers.
