Shaun Livingston officially retires from NBA
Shaun Livingston announced his retirement from the NBA on Friday morning. He played a major role on Golden State, helping the team win three titles in five straight appearances. Livingston had the great pleasure of making the Finals every year as a Warrior, and was well-regarded as a role model in the locker room.
Livingston suffered a gruesome knee injury back in 2007. Nearly every part of the knee was affected, including the ACL, PCL, lateral meniscus, MCL, patella, and tibiofibular joint. He needed three months of rehabilitation to even be able to walk again, and his career appeared to be over. But Livingston made a remarkable comeback to the NBA, hopping around many different teams, before finally joining the Warriors, where he helped end their 40-year title drought. Coach Steve Kerr stated in August that he hopes Livingston "can be involved with our organization for many years to come".
