Gerald Henderson announces retirement

Gerald Henderson: I’ve learned so many things from the game. There’s always been more to life than basketball. And for me, going forward, there’s tons of life left. At 31 right now, I’d only be playing for so much longer. I’m retiring kind of early for what one would think would be a long NBA career, whether it’s 12, 13 years, whatever that is. But the average is probably around three, four years.

Gerald Henderson: Then, this Hornets broadcasting opportunity came to me in January. I’ve done a little bit of broadcasting in the past. I did the pre- and post-game show for Fox Sports Southeast and it was perfect for me. I’m really learning about it and I think I have a career in that going forward, if I choose to do that. And I learned a lot this year from everybody there. Broadcasting, it’s a fun thing. I get to still be around basketball and talk basketball.
Gerald Henderson handled the hip pain on the basketball court, playing multiple seasons with severe arthritis. But he had enough of the pain that drifted into his everyday life. “My hip had deteriorated so much, it was bone on bone,” he said. “It was grinding all day whenever I wanted to move. Working out for any extended period was painful. It was just tough then going home with the family and you’re in pain, you’re just kind of on edge. Just overall, I was not in a great state of mind, and I had to make that decision, and it was the best decision for myself and my family and for my health.”
