The 2012-13 NBA season has nearly come to a close, which means so have the careers of a number of veteran players. Jason Kidd and Grant Hill have already retired, and the question has become: Who will be next?
The offseason is a time to focus on players entering the league and changing teams, but each year, we’re forced to say our farewells to those who will exit stage left. There’s no telling who will bow out of the league for sure, but it’s not difficult to pinpoint the top candidates.
The league’s oldest active players are Juwan Howard, Steve Nash and Marcus Camby. Here’s a spoiler alert: Two of those players make this list.
But while a handful of prominent careers will be coming to an end, we can’t forget about what each player contributed during his best days. Not every career ends with a player on top, but it’s safe to say that the players on this list will exit the league satisfied with what they’ve accomplished.
