NEW YORK - Jason Kidd retired yesterday from the NBA after 19 seasons, ending one of the greatest careers for a point guard in league history. Kidd won an NBA title and two Olympic gold medals, is second on the career list in assists and steals, and was a 10-time All-Star. But he struggled badly in the playoffs for the Knicks shortly after turning 40 and decided to walk away with 2 years and more than $6 million left on the deal he signed last summer. "My time in professional basketball has been an incredible journey, but one that must come to an end after 19 years," Kidd said in a statement released by the Knicks.

The Brooklyn Nets hired Jason Kidd as their coach on Wednesday, bringing the former star back to the franchise he led to its greatest NBA success. The Inquirer was the first to report the hiring Wednesday morning, citing a source with knowledge of the situation. The 40-year-old Kidd retired earlier this month after one season with the New York Knicks, his 19th in the NBA. The Nets decided to hire him to replace P.J. Carlesimo despite his absence of coaching experience. "This is a tremendous opportunity . . . and it's a role I have been studying for over the course of my playing days," Kidd said.

A woman has accused NBA star Jason Kidd of harassing and groping her this month at a trendy Manhattan nightspot. Kidd spokesman Scott Miranda said the accusation was "a complete fabrication and it is sad that someone would make something like this up. " The New York Police Department confirmed yesterday the 23-year-old woman filed a complaint against another club-goer on Oct. 11, a day after she said he harassed and groped her at the Tenjune...

Jason Kidd put it on Vince Carter during training camp. He expected Carter to vie for league most valuable player honors. "He's one of the two best players in the league," Kidd said recently. And the other? "Well, Shaq," Kidd said. All due respect, but he's got it backwards. There's still nobody that's more valuable to the New Jersey Nets than Kidd. The 32-year-old Kidd is still capable of leading a championship team - he's top 10 in the league in assists and top five in steals - but what's heartening to the Nets is that Kidd knows this season's team can't do that, and is happy, anyway.

Kansas has some guards who can play, too. Their names are Rex Walters and Adonis Jordan. They make fancy passes, twist for layups, hit threes in bundles and make defenses look bad. They're seniors, they're proud and - take that, Jason Kidd - they're winners. Walters and Jordan blasted through California's crumbling zone defense last night and pushed No. 2 seed Kansas past the No. 6 seed Bears, 93-76, in a Midwest Regional semifinal at St. Louis Arena. The Jayhawks (28-6) will play top seed Indiana here tomorrow in the regional final.

Jason Kidd is a true graybeard, and it took 76ers coach Doug Collins to point out how long the Dallas Mavericks point guard has been making an impact on the basketball court. It turns out that Collins first met him when Kidd and Chris Collins, son of the coach, competed together in the McDonald's All-American Game as high school seniors. Chris Collins is now an assistant coach at Duke. When this was brought up to Kidd, he smiled. Now in his 18th NBA season, Kidd turns 39 next month and has heard his share of old-man jokes.

What a blooper film this could be. Alfred Grigsby gets his features flattened by a Jason Kidd pass. Lamond Murray gets scalped by a Jason Kidd pass. Brian Hendrick gets a dent in his back from a Jason Kidd pass. To Jason Kidd, a basketball pass is like a book or a song or an artwork. It is something to create. It is individual. It should be expressive and surprising. The ending should be something worth waiting for. And when Jason Kidd throws the pass, it usually is. Kidd is the extraordinary freshman on this extraordinary California team that has advanced to the NCAA Midwest Regional semifinals tonight at the St. Louis Arena.

THERE WASN'T a lot of difference between last season's versions of the Milwaukee Bucks and the 76ers. Both rosters were mixed with youngsters and veterans. Milwaukee, though, was hampered by injuries, while the Sixers dealt their most experienced players, eventually giving them the youngest roster in the history of the NBA. Not much has changed for the Sixers this season, as they've won only 18 games going into tonight's finale against the Miami Heat. They are still painfully young and their record has them stuck near the basement of the league.

THERE IS NO animosity - or if there is, Michael Carter-Williams hides it very well. He didn't appear to have an agenda in his first game back in Philadelphia after being dealt to the Milwaukee Bucks at the trade deadline in a move that shocked most. He appears grateful for all he learned and accomplished while here, which included last season's rookie of the year award. Still, the comfort level wasn't at its highest as he met with former teammates and coaches before last night's game.

WHETHER THE plethora of moves that general manager Sam Hinkie has made during his short tenure with the 76ers turns his organization into a contender at some point remains to be seen. What yesterday's trade deadline did prove right now is that The Plan is being pushed back for at least another year or so. During one of the busiest trade deadlines in NBA history, Hinkie made three moves - the most surprising sending Michael Carter-Williams, the reigning rookie of the year, to the Milwaukee Bucks in a three-team trade that landed the Sixers a 2015 first-round draft pick.

JASON KIDD WAS always known as a smart and crafty basketball player, figuring out ways to beat you by deception, whether it be a no-look or behind-the-back pass. As the rookie coach of the Brooklyn Nets, he hasn't fooled too many people so far this season, as his team, picked by many to compete for the Eastern Conference title, is a woeful 4-11, only a half-game up on its neighbor on the other side of the Hudson River, the New York Knicks. All that money spent and the two teams have combined to win one more game than the Sixers, picked by many to be the worst team in basketball.

Hollis Thompson is chasing an uncertain NBA dream. The forward, who spent last season in the NBA Development League, wants to at least leave a positive impression with the 76ers during his bid to make their 15-man roster. But the 6-foot-8, 206-pounder out of Georgetown is a long shot to make even this youthful and inexperienced team. It's hard to deny, however, that he is playing well. Thompson scored 13 points in 28 minutes over his last two games before Monday's preseason contest against the Brooklyn Nets at the Wells Fargo Center.

BROOKLYN NETS coach Jason Kidd pleaded guilty yesterday to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge and was placed on interim probation a year after he smashed his Cadillac SUV into a utility pole on eastern Long Island. In exchange for the guilty plea, Kidd agreed to speak to Long Island high school students about the dangers of drunken driving. If he fulfills his community service, his plea will be reduced to a violation, driving while ability-impaired, when he returns to court Sept.

LESS THAN 2 weeks after ending his long, All-Star career, Jason Kidd acknowledged he has "a lot to learn about coaching" yesterday as he took the Brooklyn Nets job despite having no experience leading a team from the bench. Now a point guard who was all about assists in his 19 years on the court will be looking for a little help. "Nervous," Kidd, 40, said at a news conference in Brooklyn, when asked how he felt. "I'm a rookie. I go from being one of the oldest players in the league to now a rookie coach.

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Jason Kidd and the Brooklyn Nets have reached agreement on a contract that will install Kidd as the team's head coach. The deal is for three years. Kidd will replace P.J. Carlesimo, who took over for Avery Johnson as the team's interim coach after Johnson was fired earlier this season. Carlesimo was notified that he would not be retained shortly after the Chicago Bulls eliminated the Nets from the playoffs in the first round.
