Al Harrington NBA

Retires after 16 seasons

19 Mar, 2015

After 16 seasons in the NBA, Harrington retires. He averaged 13.5 points and 5.6 rebounds per game through a career in which he played for seven NBA teams. He is only one of five players to play more than 15 seasons after making the leap from high school to the NBA.

I’m very happy with what I was able to accomplish. I was able to change a lot of people’s lives in my family, including myself, in a game that I eventually fell in love with and will always be in love with. And hopefully, I can stay around the game until I die.

It was a fun ride. It went by fast, too. It was like one minute I was 18, the next I was 25, then was 30 and now I’m 35. It was a fun run. Met a lot of great people.
