Antonio McDyess: This is My Last Season

Before battling injuries, the Spurs forward was one of the most explosive bigs in the game. Here’s to a very solid career and class act. From the San Antonio Express-News: “Veteran big man Antonio McDyess, the Spurs’ oldest player at age 36, said he doesn’t plan to play past this season. ‘I didn’t know what to expect when they signed me (in 2009), and I’m glad to be back,’ McDyess said, ‘but I think this is it. I’m the oldest player (on the Spurs) now, and I feel like it. I’m not trying to see any more years. I’m pretty sure this is it. My body just can’t take it. I’m not Juwan Howard. I can’t believe he’s still out there, even though he is in great shape.’”

    First! Anyways McDyess was a great player for the Pistons and was always a hard worker its hard to see him leave for good but nobody can play forever.

    He was dominant in Denver, good career. Hopefully he can have a nice productive season on his way out.

    As a Piston fan my first memory of Antoonio happened on the first game of the 2004-2005 regualr season right after the Ring Ceremony for the 2004 Championship that he was not a part of because he had signed during the summer of 2004. He got ejected that game and punted the ball into the stands. Barkley said he should have showed more class now that he is on a chamoionship team.

    Evidence that if yer athleticism disappears, you can still make it in the league when you have skill. Good for you, McDyess. You’ll be missed.

    Headline: “Mc”Dyess, not “My”Dyess

  • Dagger

    It always amazes me how a 36-year-old young man in any other field is a creaky old vet in sports. He’ll be missed.

    Co-sign Jukai. It’d be cool if finished with a massive bang on Shaq or KG.

    Good luck with the coming season then Dyess you deserve a ring


    McDouche would’ve had a great shot at ring if he wasn’t such a baby refusing to go to the Nuggets as part of the AI for Billups trade. Instead he got his buyout, and went running back to Detroit. LOL
