Do Jason Kidd’s Children Play Basketball? Everything You Need To Know About NBA Legend’s 4 Kids

One of the main reasons behind the Dallas Mavericks’ success and their run to the 2023 NBA Finals is their coach, Jason Kidd. But did you know that Kidd himself was a Maverick player from 2008 to 2011, the same year the team won the NBA Championship by defeating the Miami Heat in a 4-2 series victory? Now that he is a major key in the team, all eyes are on him and his family.

While his on-court skills were undeniable, his personal life was often marred by controversy. This included his tumultuous marriage history. While Jason Kidd’s children choose to remain private, their celebrity status makes it difficult to stay entirely out of the spotlight. Kidd’s eldest son, Trey Kidd, was born in October 1998 and reflects on his father’s talent. Having grown up watching him play, Trey now follows in his footsteps by organizing charity basketball tournaments to raise funds for the community known as “The TJK Classics”.

Meanwhile, Jason who excelled as both a point guard and forward during his time at a prestigious New Jersey private school, is considered an all-time great by his son.”I think he is one of the greatest to ever do it and I am not saying that because he is my dad.” Trey concluded. Perhaps this private life with his mother contributes to Trey’s desire to stay out of the spotlight, despite his philanthropic efforts.
