Maybe Derek Fisher if the Lakers win it this year.

I remember Shaq about 2 years ago saying that he got 2 years left, but i doubt he's retiring yet, he wants to get one more ring.

I didn't know half those players were still in the league. It will suck seeing A.I. retire though.

Michael Finley and Shaq are the first that come to mind. Lesser guys like Juwan Howard and Joe Smith too.

Fisher has already said he plans on playing next year.

Fisher should retire. I don't know if I can handle another regular season like this one, even if he did show up in the second half of the playoffs. Too risky IMO.

Man, with the way former NBA players are going broke, I wouldn't be surprised if you see less players retiring, unless no teams want any part of them.

Allen Iverson just CANT retire on such a bad note. HIs legacy deserves better b/c he is still arguably one of the best little men to ever play the game and the guy invented the cross-over.

I can see Finley maybe coming back to BOS as a 12th man. Just for depth. Sometimes guys just don't want to give up the experience of being a part of a team.

Juwan Howard said he wants another year in Portland. Though I think he will retire, had that one last good year to get it all out.

Tim Hardaway invented the crossover.

Tim hardaway use to kill but
AI brought the cross over to a whole new level! when you brake the greatest nba player of all time ankles the cross over and your name are together

AI SHOULDNT RETIRE HE SHOULD GET HIS ACT TOGETHER(Drinking & Gambling) PLAY AS A 6th MAN AND WIN! IF HE COULD DO THAT I'D TAKE HIM IN PORTLAND BUT I KNOW ALOT OF MY FELLOW BLAZERS FANS THINK IM CRAZY but just think if A.I. Played as 6th man behind Andre Miller Or Roy While Bayless did the same
