After 14 seasons in the NBA, Richard Hamilton announced his retirement Thursday.
Rip didn’t play at all last season, and says it’s now time to hang up his sneakers.
Hamilton, a three-time All-Star with career averages of 17.1 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists, played for three teams and was instrumental for the title-winning 2004 Detroit Pistons:
”I want to give a major shout out to everyone who supported me through my NBA journey.”
”To my coaches, teammates, and fans in Washington, Detroit, and Chicago: thank you for treating me with the utmost class and respect during my career. I couldn’t have been the player I am without you!”
”Every stop taught me valuable lessons that I will remember for the rest of my life. Although this part of my path has come to a close, my basketball journey is far from over and I am looking forward to the road ahead.”
