    Default David Lee Has Retired

    Didn't expect this. Was wondering why he wasn't with a team. He announced it on Instagram. That third pic with the Knicks/Warriors thing is great.

    What's your favorite David Lee moments and memories?

    This is one of mine and I wasn't even watching basketball at the time. A classic Gus Johnson call:

    We drafted him, watched him become a solid player, and then dumped him like yesterday’s garbage to make salary cap room for a free agent we were never going to get. Great career, David Lee.

    I just saw an article that mentioned 5 guys that could help the struggling Thunder, Lee was the top pick on the list. The second guy was Derrick Williams, unlike Lee he's only 26, yet he's unsigned.

    Lee had a nice career and made the most of it for a guy with limited athletic ability.

    I wonder if he'll come out of retirement if he settles down with his marriage. Was an All-Star and won a ring. Had a nice career.

    He was a solid player but a liability on defense. He wanted around 15 million at the time and that was too much for us.

    I did appreciate his game tho, cuz he was the only bright spot in those horrible years we had.

    David Lee were a ambidextrous double-double hustler that scored consistently off of broken plays, plus Lee being the teams top gym-rat u would always find practicing with teammates .. David Lee was our hard workaholic rookie who improved his skills each season.
    .. Frye Lee Ariza and Lil Nate ..

    Mark Jackson build a championship team in GS having David Lee as a starter!

    Wow White Men Can Jump. lol

    I never pictured him as all that athletic, his draft report said he had a 32" vertical which isn't elite, though that same report said that his athleticism was a strong point.

    One the finest to come out of St Louis Chaminade High; I always thought we should have kept D Lee instead of going after STAT oh well 😔 I remember some monster 30/30 games Lee had as a Knick he will be missed his energy was always awesome but the PF position has changed in the NBA less post more perimeter
