Darren Collison who suddenly declared his retirement in June and surprised many, said he would not regret his decision.
Collison is on the free market after last season. The 31-year-old young and steady performance every season is expected to win big deals. But he said he was going to leave the court out of expectation. "I still love basketball but I know there's something more important than basketball. I'd like to focus on my family."
Collison, who began his second life with family after retirement, recently told reporters, "I didn't think I would retire 10 years later. "I thought I would be a player for quite some time. I still feel like I want to play on the court."
Nevertheless, he said, "I feel happy as I watch my son grow every day. I just helped my son with his homework for an hour, and since I retired, my time to help my son's homework has increased." This was fun.
"I've put all my powers on the court for 10 years, whether it's on the court or not. It's not important to be selected for the All-Star and Hall of Fame. I can't underestimate my career because I didn't win." I reiterated that I do not regret it.
Meanwhile, Collison, who was named to New Orleans Pelicans in the 2009 NBA rookie draft first round 21st place, played for five teams including Indiana for 10 seasons and averaged 12.5 points in 708 matches (FG 47.1%) 2.7 rebound 5 assists.
