"This is a very difficult and painful day.  I love the game, I love the Portland Trail Blazers  and I love our fans, but after consulting with my doctors, I will seek a  determination that I’ve suffered a career ending injury, pursuant to  the rules of the collective bargaining agreement."
"My family and health  are most important to me and in the end this decision was about them and  my quality of life.  I want to thank Paul Allen, Larry  Miller, Coach McMillan, the entire Trail Blazers organization and  our fans for all of their love and support during my time in Portland."
