Championship or not, Dallas Mavericks point guard Jason Kidd said he has no plans of entering retirement with one more season left on his contract.

Kidd, 38 and feeling "great," is trying to become the oldest point guard in NBA history to win a championship. It would be the first of his 17-year career, and on Saturday he said if it happens it won't send him riding off into the sunset.
