    Default Rasheed to Retire After 15 seasons

    Not surprised. Well past his prime.

    Rasheed Wallace officially decided to retire after 15 NBA seasons, a league source said.

    Wallace signed a three-year, $18.9 million contract with Boston last summer, turning down offers from Orlando and San Antonio after the Celtics made a team-wide push to recruit him, sending Coach Doc Rivers, GM Danny Ainge and forwards Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Wallace's home to ask him to play in Boston. He left more than $12 million on the table by opting to retire.

    What happens to the reminder of his contract ? Does it get nullified ?
    Is he really going to walk away from almost 13 million at the end of his career !!!

    I would say its the price of honour, I respect him for hanging it up and saving his team much needed money rather then pulling a Hakeem. I lost alot of respect for Hakeem for not retiring after his first season while keep collecting his contract payment (even though he wasn't playing) 2 years later.

    well, obviously.

    why would he retire in his prime?
