Today, Tony Parker announced his retirement from the NBA at the age of 37,he thinks he’s still in good health and can play another two seasons, but in Parker’s opinion, it’s time for him to leave.
“There are many factors that led me to make this decision,” Tony Parker said. “But in the end, I don’t think if I can’t be Tony Parker and fight for the championship, then I don’t want to play basketball anymore.
I was separated from my family, which was one of the reasons for my decision, so I finally came to the conclusion that it was time to choose to leave. There are many wonderful things in my life, a wonderful family, beautiful children, so I hope I can spend more time with them.
Obviously, it’s not easy for Tony Parker to decide to retire. “It’s interesting because my family and friends will say,’Oh, come on, play another season, another season. And for me? For a long time, I have been very calm to accept this decision, because I am ready. I have two teams in France. In September, I have to start an international school. I have a lot of things to do, so I have been very calm to make this decision.
Some players will farewell to tours in the last season of their careers, others will announce their retirement early and say goodbye to fans, but Tony Parker said he did not want to. “Not at all. It’s interesting that my brother asked me such a question,’Don’t you want to be like Dick and Wade?’ Then I said no, and I told him,’No, because I’m not wearing a Spurs shirt. So for me, it’s different. Wade was wearing a hot shirt to say goodbye and Nowitzki was wearing a Dallas shirt, so that would be a great way to end his career. But for me, something different is that I’m in Charlotte, so I don’t think I need to say goodbye. For me, farewell will be my jersey retired from the Spurs, or I will enter the Hall of Fame.”
Like Duncan and Ginobili, Parker’s Jersey may be retired from the Spurs in the future. Parker said he hadn’t thought much about it. “I haven’t really thought about it, I don’t know. It’s hard to imagine, but it will be the last time we celebrate the era of the Big Three, so I hope it will be a special night for everyone.”
