    I'm sure every team and every NBA fan thought he was already retired. (And if the teams didn't think he was retired they definitely considered him retired).

    His contribution as a team player will probably get overlooked.

    He was never a super athlete relative to NBA superstars, but he was highly disciplined and played his role perfectly.

    I'd like to take this time to also announce that I will be retiring from the NBA.

    Without a doubt, one of the best off-the-ball players ever. Rip is the guy that adds fluidity to an offense and what made that pistons team so damn scary. Rasheed and Billups obvious were great too, Ben (overrated) , but Rip was the one guy that score from anywhere on the court you gave him a screen.

    10 years from now, Royce White will also announce his retirement from the NBA.

    I'll take "People Named Jesus" for $200, Alex.

    Who is Ray Allen?

    Heard he ran an insane number of miles off the court for his workouts; one of the best off the ball guys and had a silky smooth midrange jumper

    Ray Allen is a better shooter than Rip, but Rip had better off-ball movement. And he moved a around a lot more. Rip actually took a lot of pride exhausting his opponents from running continuously.
