Shawn Bradley to retire?

Mavs' Bradley to retire, source says

02:15 AM CDT on Thursday, June 23, 2005


By EDDIE SEFKO / The Dallas Morning News


The Mavericks are working on a long-term buyout of center Shawn Bradley's contract that would facilitate the retirement of the 12-year veteran.

A Mavericks source said Wednesday that the buyout would pay Bradley all of the money he is owed under terms of his contract, but would be spread out over numerous years. His deal calls for him to earn $14.5 million over the next three seasons, including $4.5 million in 2005-06.

According to the source, the 7-6 Bradley has become frustrated with injuries, which included knee and hip problems the past season, and is eager to spend more time with his family, which includes a newborn, as well as five other children for him and wife Annette.

Bradley had a love-hate relationship with coach Don Nelson for most of his eight-plus seasons with the Mavericks. When Avery Johnson took over as coach in March, Bradley clearly became the Mavericks' 12th man.

With young centers Pavel Podkolzin and D.J. Mbenga on the roster, the 33-year-old Bradley was unlikely to get much playing time next season or beyond. Bradley was the No. 2 overall pick in the 1993 draft but never fulfilled expectations.

He averaged 8.1 points and 6.3 rebounds for his career, but those numbers tailed off to just 2.7 points this season.

Could it be true? The end of the Monogamist Mormon Mantis?

Does anyone have an mp3 of the Tabernacle Choir singing the Halleluiah Chorus?

FIXED

Besides, he doesn't have to dunk, he just reaches up and puts it in the basket. Of course, he's so clumsy, it's easier said than done for him.
