Keyon Dooling Confirms Retirement, Says ‘I Will Never Play NBA Ball Again’

by September 23, 2012

Despite speculation that Keyon Dooling’s retirement would be short-lived, the guard has come out and said that his rumored interest in the Miami Heat is completely false, and that he will remain out of the NBA (as a player) forevermore. Via Fox Sports Florida: “So much for Keyon Dooling wanting to join the Miami Heat. The Orlando Sentinel reported Saturday that, word was, the point guard — waived by Boston on Friday with the belief he would retire —  had interest in the Heat. But the native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., denied that. ‘No truth!’ Dooling wrote in an email to FOX Sports Florida. ‘I will never play NBA ball again.’ After he was waived by the Celtics, Dooling’s agent, Kenge Stevenson, had issued a statement announcing his client would retire.”
