We now know who's headlining the 2018 class for the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.
They will join Maurice Cheeks who was a repeated finalist up until this year.
Kidd was selected by the Mavs with the second overall pick in 1994 when he went on to win the Rookie of the Year, and played for Dallas from 1994-96, briefly during the 1996-97 season, and then again from 2008-12 when he helped the franchise win its only National Basketball Association title. Considered one of the greatest point guards of his era, Kidd led the league in assists on five separate seasons, finishing with career averages of 12.6 points, 8.7 assists, and 6.3 rebounds per game. Nash, on the other hand, is just one of 12 players ever to win two MVP awards, and was an eight-time All-Star. He won a ring with Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, and the 2011 Dallas Mavericks (apologies to still-salty Heat and LeBron fans).
In 10 seasons with the Suns, Nash averaged 14.4 points, 9.4 assists and shot 50.4 percent from the field, 43.5 percent from three and 90.7 percent from the free throw line. Kidd suited up for the Suns and New Jersey Nets, too. Nash's peak years came when he returned to Phoenix and played under coach Mike D'Antoni.
He is now a player development coach for the Golden State Warriors.
