Fox eventually did. After O’Neal was traded to Miami and Jackson’s contract wasn’t extended, Fox wasn’t sure he could deal with the Black Mamba unchained. He already had a bad foot injury and a neck problem. So he told the Lakers he was going to retire with one year left on his contract. The team tried to change his mind. He wouldn’t, and so they traded him to Boston. He never played another game. “I knew [he] was going to be hard-core all the time,” Fox said. “I thought I would reinjure myself and be walking with a cane the rest of my life. … I just couldn’t do it.”
