Default McBaby says retirement a possibility

Quote:
"If I could go through another offseason of working my [butt] off, and I don't feel I'm getting any better, I can't see myself coming back playing the way I'm playing right now. I just don't see it happening," he said.

McGrady has played in just 65 games total the past two seasons after battling injuries and recovering from microfracture surgery on his left knee. The last 24 of those games were played with the Knicks, who acquired McGrady -- and his expiring contract -- in a trade with the Houston Rockets in February.

McGrady scored 26 points in his debut with the Knicks, on Feb. 20 against the Thunder. But he cracked the 20-point plateau just two more times and finished the season averaging 8.2 points per game, well below his career 21.5 ppg scoring average.

This guy had so much talent it's rediculous. It really is ashame. No matter who it is, you always hate to see a talented player end a career way too early due to injuries.

He said a few years ago he doesn't see himself playing beyond 30. His has chronic back pains and seems he'll go out of the NBA like his idol Penny.

Is McGrady a fine example of the unintended consequences of rules like one-and-done? Is it possible that players are hurting themselves by playing an exhausting NBA schedule before their body is fully developed?
