Twenty-year careers do not always age gracefully. Ray Bourque and John Elway bowed out at the perfect moment.

Shaq’s career spiritually ended after the title in Miami and no one is going to remember a single team he tried out for after San Francisco. Thankfully, Ewing found coaching to give him a new light to stand in.
The second-greatest goalie in history has made it clear that he wants to be the next Patrick Ewing.
