The Last Dance
Watching LA and Miami play, last Monday, I was thinking how awkward it was for NBA players to have a "retirement" season.
If it's an all-time great like Kareem or (perhaps) Kobe, it's one thing. But ... has Wade really "earned" a Last Dance season? Am I the only one who found Paul Pierce's "Farewell Tour" really awkward?
Maybe it's better for player to just quietly leave - like Duncan or (I assume) Dirk.
