Orlando Magic forward Al Harrington didn’t endure a grueling comeback to disappear into the shadows. Harrington, 33, said he is not ready to retire from the NBA.
“I can’t go out like this. I just can’t,” he told me. “Not this way.”
Harrington has been around too long not to realize how a rebuild works. He’s a pro’s pro, but that doesn’t mean he likes sitting.
“I understand what they’re doing here. I do. But I think I have something left in this old tank,” he said.
Harrington hopes to hook on with another team, preferably a playoff-caliber club. If he can’t, even as much as he loves the game, then he will face facts.
“I’m through playing with bad teams,” he said. “If I can’t [sign with a playoff team,] then that’s probably it. What would be the point?”
