All season long, Antonio McDyess has been saying this will probably be his last season.
He’s had a 15-year NBA career and will turn 37 during next season and made it clear to the News-Express after the Spurs disappointing loss to the Grizzlies that he is ready to walk away.
“This was my last game,” the 16-year veteran said. “I’m pretty definite on that. But this was not the way I wanted it to end.”
I imagine not. He gave a frank assessment of the Spurs problems but was not able to do much in this series to stop Zach Randolph and being part of only the second ever top seed to lose to an eight seed has to leave a bad taste in your mouth.
But McDyess had a very nice career. He was an All-Star (2001) and was part of the 1996 All-Rookie team. He played in Denver (where he scored 20 points a game in the lockout shortened 1999 season), Phoenix, Detroit and finished in San Antonio.
It will be a little weird not to see him on the court next season.
