Maybe it was the NBA title that he won in June. Or the new wife he married in September. Or the Dallas condo he placed on the market. Or the NBA lockout that afforded him plenty of free time. Whatever it was, there's no doubt about this:

Perennial All-Star Jason Kidd is having himself one big year to remember.

Now, to top it all off, Kidd has signed a contract on a sprawling, two-acre Hamptons mansion that had been listed for $5.975 million. Not a bad way to celebrate being the oldest point guard in NBA history to win an NBA Finals title.

Kidd, 38, has spent 17 years in the NBA and has one year left in his contract with the Mavericks. With the NBA lockout over and the league set to start play on Christmas Day, Kidd can make good on his statements that he'd like to hang around the league for another two years, make it to the ripe old age of 40 before hanging up his high-tops.
