For all of the drama surrounding the outcome of the NBA playoff series between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Dallas Mavericks, there's also some greatness on display that few players will ever achieve. With his rebounding milestone tonight (as described below), Mavericks point guard Jason Kidd entered some very impressive territory.
Jason Kidd: 1,000th career playoff rebound tonight. Only others with 1,000 playoff points, rebounds and assists: Jordan, Pippen, Magic, Bird— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) May 1, 2012
Kidd's career is definitely on the plane of several Hall of Famers and his case will be an interesting one in time. For now he hopes to add another NBA Championship to his resume.
Kidd averaged 6.2 points, 5.5 assists and 4.1 rebounds this year for the Mavs.
