Eric Montross is retiring because of a lingering foot injury. That's another center that retires from the Raptors.

How will the NBA replace his star power? Sad day.

I wonder if they will retire his number, have a retirement cememony, or have a press conference announcing his retirement "from the game of baasketball"

He shot poorly two seasons ago from the stripe...like 32%. Does he belong in the league at all? He had absolutely no potential in my opinion. :mhihi:

comin into tha NBA he had a whole lot of potential. He was drafted 9th overall by Boston in tha '94 draft, and avg 10 ppg and 7rpg in his first season. But then the downfall came.After 2 seasons with boston he was traded to DAL, then traded again to NJ, and then again to PHI, and then to detroit, where he was miserable and even avg .8 ppg one season with Detroit! He was a terrible, TERRIBLE mistake in the NBA, and he got lost and was injury prone. Sad, sad story

wish him tha best of luck in tha future...

i think he will become a motivational speaker when hes done with basketball WHICH he is....

haha still talkin bout tha mateen potential factor? OK so he did have alot of potential comin into tha NBA, since he led Michigan State to the Title...hasnt really gotten a chance...i think he should go to a young team like the grizzlies or the nuggets he would fit in there
