Michael Dickerson retires


Poor guy--he was great at Arizona.

Quote:

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Memphis Grizzlies guard Michael Dickerson retired from the NBA on Saturday after a five-year career that was stalled by injuries.

Dickerson averaged 15.4 points and 2.6 assists in 212 games with the Houston Rockets and the Vancouver/Memphis Grizzlies. But he played in only 10 games the past two season because of health problems, including a serious groin strain.

"This is a sad day for me," Dickerson said. "I am grateful to the entire Grizzlies organization for their unwavering support and encouragement throughout my career and especially the lengthy process to attempt to rehab my injuries."

A member of Arizona's 1997 NCAA championship team, Dickerson was selected by Houston in the first round of the 1998 NBA draft. He was acquired by the Grizzlies in a 1999 trade.

That's really too bad. He was a pretty solid player when he was healthy.

Speaking of the Grizz, I saw Big Jake last night at Axis. If he's 285, Shaq must be 385, because he didn't seem too bulky to me. I told him we would miss his size, and he said he doubted it. Pretty cool to me.

That's pretty cool. Honestly there are only a couple teams against whom I think the Phoenix Suns will miss his size. Otherwise I don't think they will miss him much comedy especially when FJ is intent on going small.

285 lbs. is big , but remember that is spread out over a 7' 2" body.
