Rip Hamilton: I Want to Retire with Pistons


Like I’ve said [before], Detroit was a city that changed my whole career around. I want to be here. I want to retire here. One day I want to get my name and my jersey put up in the rafters. I couldn’t see myself playing anywhere else. No matter who’s here.

Q: Do you guys worry that Rasheed [Wallace] will be the next one to go or talk about what else might change this summer?

A: I can’t even think about that, man. This season’s been so crazy, with all the different things that’ve been going on. Your mind can’t even go that far. Your mind can only focus on this season, figuring out a way for us to get healthy and try to make a run for the playoffs.
