Shaun Livingston ha annunciato il proprio ritiro

Home NBA News

Dopo essere diventato free agent in seguito al taglio dei Golden State Warriors, Shaun Livingston ha deciso di non proseguire la propria carriera in NBA o nel basket giocato. Il veterano, 34 anni compiuti un paio di giorni fa, ha annunciato il proprio ritiro sui social, al termine di una carriera durata 15 anni e che poteva essere molto più breve visto il gravissimo infortunio subito nel 2007 che la mise a repentaglio.

Invece Livingston si è sempre dimostrato più forte delle avversità, è tornato in campo e con gli Warriors ha conquistato tre titoli NBA, chiudendo la carriera con 6.3 punti e 3.0 assist di media in 959 partite disputate tra RS e Playoffs.

After 15 years in the NBA, I’m excited, sad, fortunate and grateful all in one breath. Hard to put into a caption all of the emotions it takes to try and accomplish your dreams. I wasn’t supposed to be here. Anybody that has beat the odds understands the mental and emotional strain it takes to inspire yourself on an uphill war, let alone inspire others. “The injury” gave me a chance to find and prove to myself (and the world) that I wouldn’t be defined by my circumstances. With my time in the League what I will be most proud of is the fact that my character, values and faith were tested, and I persevered. To my pops that told me to “go get the big ball” I THANK YOU. To my Grandpa that always showed me there was more to life than basketball I THANK YOU. To my Uncles that helped raise me like I was one of their own, THANK YOU. To my wife and kids…the future IS BRIGHTER than our past, and I couldn’t see myself taking on this chapter without you. To all of my teammates, coaches, TRAINERS, staff, my journey is a collection of experiences, and those of you that helped me along the way, THANK YOU! To all the fans and anybody else that inspired me, supported me, cheered for me, or even said good words about me, THANK YOU. “The greatest gift we can give is service to others” #Raiseaglass 🍷
