Here's to Shareef Abdur-Rahim

Posted on: September 22, 2008 9:48 pm
The news is that Sacramento Kings forward Shareef Abdur-Rahim has retired because he believes that his arthritic knees won't be able to hold up, which is true. However, he's so much more than the knees that have hurt him for most of his career. He was a great low-post scorer who just got thrown into one bad situation after another. SAR was truly a class act in my opinion, I remember him coming game in and game out playing his hardest for his teams. I remember him on the Kings with his jaw wired shut(he could only drink shakes), and yet he somehow argued and got a technical. That was how much he cared.
