台北時間9月14日,前勇士球員、3屆NBA總冠軍成員Shaun Livingston在個人社群網站上宣佈,將從此退休,結束職業生涯。

兩天前剛滿34歲的Livingston,在今年的7月10日被勇士買斷,他剩餘的200萬美元保障金額將會分3年計入未來薪資上限中。Livingston本來打算再戰一年,不過之後沒有找到合適的下家,最終還是選擇了退休。

After 15 years in the NBA, I’m excited, sad, fortunate and grateful all in one breath. Hard to put into a caption all of the emotions it takes to try and accomplish your dreams. I wasn’t supposed to be here. Anybody that has beat the odds understands the mental and emotional strain it takes to inspire yourself on an uphill war, let alone inspire others. “The injury” gave me a chance to find and prove to myself (and the world) that I wouldn’t be defined by my circumstances. With my time in the League what I will be most proud of is the fact that my character, values and faith were tested, and I persevered. To my pops that told me to “go get the big ball” I THANK YOU. To my Grandpa that always showed me there was more to life than basketball I THANK YOU. To my Uncles that helped raise me like I was one of their own, THANK YOU. To my wife and kids…the future IS BRIGHTER than our past, and I couldn’t see myself taking on this chapter without you. To all of my teammates, coaches, TRAINERS, staff, my journey is a collection of experiences, and those of you that helped me along the way, THANK YOU! To all the fans and anybody else that inspired me, supported me, cheered for me, or even said good words about me, THANK YOU. “The greatest gift we can give is service to others” #Raiseaglass 🍷

Livingston是在2004年首輪第4順位被洛杉磯快艇選中的,這位身高201公分的控衛之前被寄予厚望,得到了「小Magic Johnson」的稱號,不過在他的第三個賽季,對山貓的比賽僅僅4分鐘左右,Livingston在無人防守上籃時滑倒,隨後被抬出場外,這次慘烈的受傷導致他的三根左膝十字韌帶斷裂,而這次毀滅性的大傷,一度曾被稱為可能導致截肢。

但Livingston透過長期的復健,最終頑強地回到聯盟,但他的狀態大不如前,成為臨時工屢次被裁員,他先後加入熱火、雷霆、巫師,並成功拿到山貓的三年合約,之後他又輾轉公鹿、火箭、巫師、騎士和籃網,在2013-14賽季為籃網打出出色的一年後,他選擇了勇士,並從此開始作為替補控衛,在勇士扮演重要角色。

Livingston之後共為勇士效力了5個賽季,其中3次奪得總冠軍,Livingston是伴隨了整個勇士王朝的球員之一,勇士也是他表現最好的階段,不過上賽季他的狀態太差,而在合約進入最後一年部分保障時,勇士放棄了他。

Livingston的整個生涯一共出戰了833場比賽,其中先發191場,在場均上場20.6分鐘裡能拿下6.3分2.4籃板3助攻,而隨著Andre Iguodala的被交易和Livingston的退休,2015年的那支勇士隊,如今也只剩下浪花兄弟和Draymond Green三位球員了。
