Retirement talk is as shocking as Mickael Pietrus acting goofy during an interview. But “a lot of different guys?”
Even still, count Bass among those that would like to keep the band together.
“Oh, that would be great,” he said. “A lot of different guys are talking about retiring, different things, but it would be great to have this group back.
“This group here was like family, for the first time in a long time. It felt like family. We had fights, we had ups, we had downs, but at the end of the day we all fought for each other, and I’m just grateful to be a part of this group.”
We know Kevin Garnett will ponder retirement. We know Paul Pierce oddly broached retirement talk on at least two occasions this season. We know Ray Allen wants to have ankle surgery and return next season, and possibly for years to come. Nobody else has plans to retire, right? Maybe Keyon Dooling?
Either way, I loved this:
Maybe their last plane ride together, and they just didn’t want it to end.
