Most great NBA stars hope to retire in their late 30s or early 40s. We are seeing Dirk Nowitzki and Vince Carter playing after hitting 40. Kyrie Irving has a different approach and claims he wants to retire much sooner than most his peers.
The Boston Celtics point guard stated the following about his future:
“Once I’m done with this, hopefully in my early to mid-30s, I’m done with this.”
Irving is a strange cat and he may be one of the few athletes to actually mean it when threatening an early retirement.
