Kidd's triple-double was one for ages

Jason Kidd turned 37 on March 23.

It took him all of 19 days to become just the third player in league history to register a triple-double at that age.

Utah’s Karl Malone did it as a 40-year old early in the 2003-04 season. Elvin Hayes had one at 38 with Houston on April 13, 1984.

And then there’s Kidd.

Eleven points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds in Saturday’s 126-108 rout at Sacramento gave the Mavericks’ point guard 105 career triple-doubles, behind only Oscar Robertson’s 181 and Magic Johnson’s 138 on the all-time list.

John Stockton had one triple-double in a playoff game for the Jazz at age 39 -- against Dallas in the teams’ memorable first-round clash in 2001 -- but never in a regular-season game.
