McDyess ‘Pretty Definite’ About Final NBA Game

by April 30, 2011

Even if it didn’t end the way he hoped, it was a fantastic 16 years in the L for Antonio McDyess. “His neck still ached and his left arm still tingled after Friday’s Game 6 loss to the Grizzlies ended the Spurs’ season. What hurt Antonio McDyess the most was his heart. ‘This was my last game,’ the 16-year veteran said. ‘I’m pretty definite on that. But this was not the way I wanted it to end.’ McDyess suffered another ‘stinger’ in the third quarter of the Grizzlies’ 99-91 victory at the FedEx Forum, temporarily losing the feeling in his left arm, as he had in Game 3 at the same venue. This time, he was able to return to the game, scoring 10 points and doing a yeoman, if futile, defensive job on Zach Randolph.”
