Peja Stojakovic announces his retirement

Repeated back problems have been undermining the morale of forward Peja Stojakovic slowly but irresistibly. Hampered by physical problems, the Serbian player has said enough. Abandon the practice of basketball at age 34.

It does this through the front door, having achieved the ring with the Dallas Mavericks last season. Stojakovic's role in the conference semifinals against the Lakers was crucial to drive the knee to the then champions of the NBA.

Fans remain forever in the retina the image of the effective and unusual shooting mechanics and surgical precision of Stojakovic, who took part, along with Chris Webber, Vlade Divac, Doug Christie and Jason Williams one of the most exciting quintets recent history of the best league in the world. Those Sacramento Kings in the early 2000s, the country captivated by his daring and formidable team play.

Stojakovic is removed with a 40.1% accuracy in three-point regular league (1,760 in 4392). It has also been a champion triple Contest (2002 and 2003) and three-time All Star Feroz shooter and unrepentant rival, the eaves of Pozega has given unforgettable moments throughout his 13 seasons and 804 games in the U.S. The success from the free throw line has also been another of his arguments to mow down opponents: 2,237 of 2,500 cast converted (89.5%).

Maybe his hunger has been satiated after achieving the title of 'Mavs'. Anyway, in Sacramento, New Orleans / Oklahoma, Toronto and Dallas, franchises in which he played, not easily forget his name. Remove the Pozega gunner, but the legend was born.

  1. Personally, I still consider Peja as one of the best three point gunner in the World. At the age of 34, he still has a few years left to play. It's just sad to see that he had to bid farewell to basketball due to injuries.
