The above picture shows Jason Kidd and Noel Esteban hanging out after the Mavericks last home game against the New York Knicks.

Oh, yeah, it also shows them throwing the "Shaka" sign which is a traditional and popular Hawaiian hand gesture that is used as a greeting and salutation.

Accordingly, Noel, was in town from the Island of Oahu with this mom and sister. They traveled to Dallas as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas.

Jason and Noel talked about many topics.

Here are a few of Noel's favorite things.

Color: green
Subject: History/Social Studies
Food: Italian
Music: R&B / Hawaiian
Movie: Kung Fu Panda
TV Show: Rachel Ray / Disney Channel
Sport/Team: Basketball / Mavericks
Favorite activity: playing Wii


Noel stressed to Jason that he might need to hire him in the future to be his personal chef. They needed to keep in touch so when Noel graduated from cooking school he would give Jason first crack at his services.

Noel, more talkative and friendly than Gomer Pyle, was not at all star struck by Jason and it seemed like they had been friends for many years. Noel told Jason he liked him for a long time and loved the way he passes the ball on the court.

It seemed like the two would talk into the night but the Mavericks where headed out of town on midnight flight to Phoenix. Jason got Noel's cell phone number and said "You better remember who I am. I don't want to call you and have you say 'Jason Who?'"

Noel with much enthusiasm assured him “I won’t forget!”
