Shaun Livingston ha annunciato il suo ritiro su Instagram.

Il prodotto di Peoria High School ha giocato la scorsa stagione con Golden State Warriors ottenendo 15′ di media da Steve Kerr.

Nella sua carriera Shaun Livingston ha giocato anche per Charlotte Hornets, Los Angeles Clippers, Miami Heat, Memphis Grizzlies, OKC Thunder, Milwaukee Bucks, Washington Wizards, Cleveland Cavs, Houston Rockets e Brooklyn Nets.

Tra i suoi ricordi anche quel 26 febbraio 2007: subisce un infortunio al ginocchio che lo tiene fuori per tutta la stagione e fa persino temere per la sua carriera. Durante un’azione di gioco, incorre in una brutta caduta che gli provoca la rottura dei due legamenti crociati (anteriore e posteriore), del legamento collaterale mediale, del menisco laterale e, inoltre, la lussazione della rotula. C’è il rischio, secondo i medici, di amputazione della gamba.

Ma per altri 12 anni giocherà in Nba.

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 🍷
