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).

Ahh pay phones. I remember having to always keep some spare change when I was a kid in case I needed to call my folks to come pick me up from somewhere. So different these days. Also didn't the sega saturn come out in 94?

Same here. Crazy to think that probably close to half of the posters here probably weren't born yet.

I remember having to use a pay phone in high school (cell phones were out, but not common among high schoolers yet).

And the crazy thing about the Nintendo systems is that it 94 was closer to the N64 release date than the SNES release.

Jason Kidd's longevity is insane, dude is almost 40 years old and still plays at such high level.

I remember watching Kidd Cal highlights on Sportscenter all the time. He and Lamond Murray went to work. Also, I remember Kidd dunking a lot more back then (a lot more = more than never, since he doesn't dunk anymore). I remember two-handers off one foot without the hang (though I've seen high school highlights where he seemed more willing to hang on the rim then).

Jason Kidd and Steve Nash will have the freedom to leave the league on their terms. So will KG, differing being they're guards and have a less physically demanding role than KG.

Unfortunately AI and T Mac didn't have this luxury.
