New York Knicks Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations and General Manager Glen Grunwald announced forward/center Rasheed Wallace has retired from playing professional basketball.
“Rasheed has given this team everything he had,” Head Coach Mike Woodson said. “He is a winner, true professional and leader on and off the court. Due to his injury, he will not be available to play for us during the playoffs. We owe this season’s success to veterans like Rasheed.”
Loved Sheeds game, could have at least come back to pick up one more tech foul lol, o well I wish him the best I heard some stories that hes actually a top guy off the court as well, he retired with a ring and he will be known for a long time imo.
Huh? Didn't he just come back from an injury? Did he get injured again in that game?
He got hurt again.
I'm disappointed. He looked great to start the year, its a pretty sad way to end your career going out right before the Playoffs. I was hoping he'd be able to play a few more meaningful minutes but it's probably not possible at this point. Very good career nonetheless.
