It's really crazy to think about how long Jason Kidd, Kobe, Garnett...
 
have been playing in the league. Jason Kidd was drafted in 1994. I was 10 years old back then. 10!! I have an 18 year old cousin who was born in October of '94. He wasn't even born when Jason Kidd was drafted and now my cousin is a senior in high school and going to start college next fall and Jason Kidd is still playing in the NBA. I mean Bill Clinton was still only in his first term as president when Kidd was drafted. Back then no one had even heard of DVDs. Barely anyone knew what the internet was or had it. And Kobe was drafted in '96. I was 12 years old! And not only is he still playing but it's pretty amazing that he's playing at such a high level.

Holy sh*t.

I didn't even hair on my balls when Kidd was drafted. I was still 3 years away from jerking off for the first time. Now I'm a grown ass man with a family, mortgage and thousands of hours of masterbasion experience under my belt.

Now that 40 year olds are becoming common in the NBA (mind you it wasn't completely non-existent back in the day, see Kareem and Robert Parish) I wonder how long before 45 becomes the norm, then 50.

In this regard, people seriously underrate these fellas. Not only are they still playing...but they are contributing in big ways for their teams.


Hell, these guys have been around the league for half of my life, and im 31. Its going to be a strange experience watching them retire finally...when the last of the last of those 90s guys are gone.

:cheers: me too

but 6er fans always knew he wouldnt be around forever. took too many hits, crashed to the floor to much and he never became the pure playmaker he could have been.. If he could have transitioned into being a good point guard who didnt turn the ball over 10 times in a game, he would still be in the league

AI was the man tho...

What irks me is the way people sleep on AI. Which GENERALLY are the younger dudes that were kids when Iverson was ripping shit up back in the day. For his size, ive NEVER seen a guy that was unstoppable like that.

When Jason Kidd was drafted as a kid these were your entertainment options:



or



If you needed to call your parents from away from the house, you had to use one of these:



Good times. A cell phone was something the size of a brick that you'd occasionally see a businessman holding.

I remember watching Kidd and KG get drafted (Kobe too).

I kinda felt like this with Shaq. I was 7 when he was drafted. Grew up watching him, thought he would never retire. But yeah, Kidd, Hill, Kobe, Nash, JO, Duncan, Garnett, Kurt Thomas. They are soldiers. Juwan Howard needs to be on the list too as he just retired this year.
