Jason Kidd

2008-Present
 
 

Jason Kidd started his career with the Dallas Mavericks all the way back in 1994 but it's really the 2000s when he began to shine. Since being traded back to the Mavs in the 2007-08 season from New Jersey, Kidd has shot over 80% from the free throw line and has averaged nearly a double double during that time. Kidd won his first NBA Championship this past season with Dallas.
