“I don’t take this opportunity for granted, I know any decisions that I could have made could have led me down the wrong path and hopefully I was a light every time I came back to Peoria was to try to inspire the youth and let them know that there is more out there,” said Livingston. Shaun Livingston is also known for giving back to the Central Illinois community. He hosts numerous events through the Shaun Livingston foundation as well as providing scholarships for minority students.
For Shaun Livingston, agreeing to be the guest speaker for next year’s Best of Central Illinois Preps gala was a “no-brainer.” “I want to establish my post-career and presence in the Peoria area,” the three-time NBA champion and Peoria native said via phone from his home in the San Francisco/Oakland Bay Area. “Peoria is near and dear to my heart. It makes a lot of sense to go back and talk to the kids. They’re our future leaders. If you can help put them on the right path they’re already on, that for me was extra motivation.”
Does it feel weird not to be playing basketball this time of year? “It does, because I’ve been doing it so long,” he said. “It’s definitely a change of pace. But it’s something I’m embracing. Change is good sometimes. I’m really enjoying the moment and being present doing small things, spending time with my girls and traveling. I’m taking a sabbatical, reflecting on my next direction and putting a plan into place.”
Steve Kerr: It’s hard to express how thankful I am to have coached this man the past 5 years. What an amazing combination of talent, grace, & character. I will miss his calm leadership,his presence, his passing & his turnaround jumpers in the post. Nothing but great things ahead!

“Dot’s a legend,” David West said via text. Livingston’s teammates called him Dot, a spinoff of S-Dot, as in S. Livingston. Jay-Z, whose government name is Sean Carter, made it a popular nickname for “S” names with his 1999 song “S. Carter.” “He came back from an injury that would have sealed the fate of most players,” West said. “He had a determination that should be admired for years to come. Great teammate and even better person. Proud to call him a friend.”
