Shane Battier: No Plans on ‘Retirement Tour’
Shane Battier isn’t sure he’s the retiring type, but considering the Miami Heat forward turned 35 Monday, he appreciates the end could be near.
“I’m realistic to where I am at this point in my life,” he said, after playing most of last season as a reserve and seeing limited action for an extended stretch of the playoffs. “I’d like to finish my contract strong with the Miami Heat, and then we’ll see where we go.”
Battier, though, said there would not be any sort of retirement tour, with possibilities still remaining in 2014 free agency.
