    Shareef Announces Retirement

    Sacramento Kings’ forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim today announced his retirement from the NBA as a player due to a reoccurring knee injury.

    “First of all, on behalf of the entire organization I want to thank Shareef for his contribution to the Kings and NBA both on and off the court,” said Kings’ President of Basketball Operations Geoff Petrie. “He has had an exemplary career as a player and citizen. It is unfortunate for any productive career to be felled by injury. However, no one can ever doubt Shareef’s effort, commitment or desire to excel. It is our intention to find a new role for Shareef with the organization as he begins the next phase of his professional life.”

    Abdur-Rahim enjoyed 12 seasons in the NBA with four different teams (Vancouver 1996-97 to 2000-01, Atlanta 2001-02 to 2003-04, Portland 2003-04 to 2004-05 and Sacramento 2005-06 to 2007-08), amassing career averages of 18.1 points (.452 FGs, .297 3FGs, .810 FTs), 7.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game through 830 outings. His most productive season, statistically, occurred during the 1998-99 campaign in Vancouver when he averaged 23.0 points (.432 FGs, .306 3FGs, .841 FTs), 7.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game through 50 contests (NBA Lockout season). The following season (1999-00), Abdur-Rahim averaged double figures in both points (20.3) and rebounds (10.1) per game, in which he played in all 82 contests for the Grizzlies.

    He was a pretty damn good player back in the day. It sucks he was never part of a great team. Sad that he wasn't able to chase a ring.

    He was the first franchise player of the Vancouver Grizzlies, and thanks for the memories Shareef Abdur Rahim at least he won a Gold Medal in the 2000 Sydney, Olympics.

    We will miss you Shareef, and i wish you great success in your future endeavors.

    nice career, very underrated player.... if he had stayed healthy his whole career, his stats would have even been sicker.

    Was one of those what if players. If he could have stayed healthy and was on a contender earlier in his career he could have been something alot more special.

    However, he was a great shooter, and always an underrated/underappreciated player.

    I remember my first ever NBA jersey was a throwback Shareef Abdul-Rahim jersey on the Hawks around 6 years back, man that jersey was sick

    He could have been a really good player if he wasn't injured. Good player and good luck to him in his future.
