Seventeen years of hard work, determination and will paid off for Jason Kidd in a big way on Sunday night.
The Dallas Mavericks defeated the Miami Heat, 105-95, to win the NBA Finals, four games to two. The victory gave J-Kidd his first-ever NBA title.

Immediately after the game, Jason was still in awe of the accomplishment.
"It’s a dream come true," he said. "It’s not real right now, because just the battles against the Heat and understanding the journey, it’s been a long journey for 17 years."
Plenty more to come on NBA champion, Jason Kidd.
