Boston Celtics forward Jaylen Brown wasn’t born yet when Jason Kidd first laced up a pair of sneakers in the NBA back in 1994, but he definitely has heard a lot about the legendary court general. Even before he made it to the NBA himself, Brown likely already was well educated of the basketball life of Kidd. After all, both players are products of the California Golden Bears program.

So when Kidd got enshrined Friday to the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Brown made sure to congratulate the playmaking wizard.

Jason Kidd played 19 years in the NBA and during that span, he found open teammates, fed them with assists, and entertained the masses on an almost nightly basis with his sublime mastery of the game. A couple of years before he called it quits, Kidd was able to achieve what was long missing in his illustrious NBA career, when he won an NBA title with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011.

Jaylen Brown is a good player himself, but at this point, he is galaxies apart from what Kidd accomplished in the NBA. He’s got plenty of time to build on his resume, though. It helps that he’s playing in a great organization, so it’s not entirely impossible for him to join Kidd in the highest echelon of the sport.
