NBA Rumor: Marv Albert Retirement?

8 rumors in this storyline

What was the turning point for why you decided to retire after you call the Eastern Conference Finals? Albert: “There was no real turning point. But three or four years ago, I felt it was time. I know next November, I’m going to miss it once the league starts up again. But I’ll be watching everything. I’m going to watch all sports. It’s been 55 years of NBA broadcasting, and that’s a lot of talking. I’ll miss getting together with coaches before and after games. Some have become friends before or after working with me, including Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr. There are others, too. I’ll miss the chats we’ll have with them before games or at the hotels and also in our production meetings.”

Spoelstra has accepted an invitation to join the USA Basketball coaching staff for its Olympic preparations in Las Vegas next month. The Miami Heat coach, who went head-to-head against Popovich and San Antonio in the 2013 and 2014 NBA Finals, will be involved coaching the U.S. select team — a group of players that will be brought in to practice and scrimmage against the Olympic roster.
“I really just want to be a part of the program,” Spoelstra said. “I’m always pushing myself to get better in the offseasons; I go visit people and all that stuff. This is going to be a basketball immersion. I mean, the dinners, the team meetings … for where I am right now in my career, I think this is the perfect thing for a summer of development.”
