Tony Parker has announced his decision to retire from the NBA after 18 seasons.
Parker spent last season with the Charlotte Hornets after spending his entire career previously with the San Antonio Spurs.
“I’m going to retire,” Parker told The Undefeated. “I decided that I’m not going to play basketball anymore.”
Parker had previously hoped to play 20 seasons. Parker was a six-time All-Star.
Parker told The Undefeated he feels physically good enough to play two more seasons but in his mind he believes it is time to walk away.
“A lot of different stuff ultimately led me to this decision,” Parker said. “But, at the end of the day, I was like, if I can’t be Tony Parker anymore and I can’t play for a championship, I don’t want to play basketball anymore.”
