Former Warriors Guard Shaun Livingston Calls it a Career After 15 Years

After 15 NBA seasons, former Golden State Warriors point guard Shaun Livingston has decided to call it a career.

Overcoming one of the more gruesome knee injuries early in his career, Livingston was able to build a career on being a reliable backup point guard with the ability to score from the midrange and defend multiple positions. A former no. 4 overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft, Livingston – against all odds – had an incredibly lengthy career in which he took on a leadership role with multiple teams and wrapped his NBA journey up with a half-decade magical run with the Warriors.

“Shaun Livingston’s story is one of the most inspirational in the history of professional sports. What he accomplished after suffering so many trials and tribulations early in his career is a true testament to who he is as a person, which has always been characterized by tremendous class, grace and professionalism. He represents everything that you’d want in a professional athlete and, most importantly, in a human being. We appreciate what he did for our team and organization over the last five years, becoming a three-time NBA champion and a key figure on one of the best teams in NBA history. We wish him well as he begins the next phase in his life,” said the Warriors GM Bob Myers in a statement.

Livingston averaged 6.3 points per game throughout his 15 year NBA career.
