Charlotte native and former NBA star Antawn Jamison may be done on the basketball court, but he still has NBA dreams. At age 41, Jamison says he wants to land a front-office job where he can work building championship teams. Speaking to the Charlotte Observer last week, Jamison said he also wants to focus on being a dad to his five children, who range in age from 17 to 6 months. “They sacrificed so much when I played,” he said. “They need me to be home.” He said he has no regrets about calling it quits.
Former NBA All-Star Antawn Jamison was playing a round recently at The Golf Club at Ballantyne with longtime friend and college teammate Vince Carter. “I don’t understand how he does it,” Jamison said of Carter, 40, who is preparing for his 20th NBA season. “He can barely bend over to read his putts. To see him still be Vince Carter, and enjoying it. …He still brings something to the game.”
Jamison, 41, said he doesn’t miss the competition or the compensation. He does miss the camaraderie. “There is something about being in a locker room after a practice or a hard loss, and putting your heads together to try to figure something out. I miss that part,” said Jamison, speaking before Thursday’s Hooptee charity golf tournament at Ballantyne. “The other parts? I was grateful to experience it all,” but he was done.
