10 Former NBA Stars Whose Careers Ended TERRIBLY

We saw players like Kobe finish off his career with a 60 point game. That was arguably the greatest last game in NBA history. But for most NBA stars...it's not like that. Hope you enjoy the video!

  • Lmao! Iverson doesn't realize the irony of him ranting about "coming off the bench" is precisely WHY he had to "come up off that bench"

  • My respect for cats like Kobe and Dirk is even higher. 15-20 years of the griiiiind of the NBA. The politics, the media, the $, the egos, the drastic changes, the force on the body, training, traveling.... For THAT long.... Wow. What it takes to even GET that good.. then add all that to it.

  • Slow mo Kobe at :30. Wow! It's no wonder these guys suffer injuries. Look at the amount of force and contact on their muscles, their bones, the ligaments... Wow. Its staggering the amount of force and contact in bball. Just incredible! Even Kobe, a calloused veteran.. his muscles are bouncing on the bones like if you took a chicken leg and banged it on a counter.

  • Stephon Marbury should be #2. From basically 2003 - 2009, it was a zoo of situation. Probably one of the most expensive players to create so much conflict. Ended his NBA career in Boston team at age 31 where he averaged only 3.8 PPG. Then went over to China.

  • Alvin Robertson's career ended so badly that the NBA basically erased his name from most steals in a regular season with 301 due to his arrests and alleged horrific violence.

  • From what I knew years back, the reason Magic Johnson finally retired was because opposing players complained that they could not guard him effectively due to his health condition, they're even afraid to touch him. Magic gave in to this pressure.

  • 3) Allen Iverson Blacklisted by the NBA... What do u mean wasn't good enough to be a primary option anymore, in 07-08 in denver he averaged 26ppg 7 ast and 2 stl per, thats top 10 in the league in those categories, not only did he do that his fg percentage & 3 pt percentage where the highest they've ever been. 26ppg next to Carmelo Anthony = 30+ppg if he was alone & probably more assist. iN 2008 on Denver he also scored 58pt ppg against Kobe & the lakers. Why then in 2009 Detroit wanted to bench him, U guys in the media ignore the fact that in Detroit his points was down cause they had so many offensive options & he was trying to fit in the team concept + he was taking less than 15 shots per game. Yet still the normally intelligent media analyst claim that iverson lost a step, & couldn't score as much, so much decline in 1 summer, The lakers even wanted to put him in the D league & the few other teams wanted to bench him. calling him a locker room cancer yet still in Denver he was a model citizen on & off the court, same thing in Detroit. Larry Brown wanted him on Bobcats but Mj blocked it, still upset from the crossover apparently. The truth is Iverson if he had maintained franchise player scoring volume would've surpassed MJ & perhaps Kareem on the all time scoring list. If u look at his points, he took the fewest games to reach there & is a top 5 NBA player o all time. The greatest Little man ever some say Isaiah Thomas, but I've seen hos top ten plays & he was no where near as exciting to watch and Tho his Badboys Detroit Pistons held Jordan from the NBA finals for years & gave him hell, that was a team effort & a coach with a set of rules called the Jordan Rules. Iverson in 1 game did what Isaiah couldn't crossed up jordan & ensure that he never even wanted to defend him again, & while 1 team had the jordan rules, The NBA brought back the Zone defense, for every team mainly because of iverson, not just the dress code rules. 4 time scoring champ, even at his slowest is faster than most of the league, yet still no team is interested,, a few months from dropping 58 on the lakers...a good team infact his career high 60pts came against Dwight Howard, a defensive player of the year, magic. In comparison Kobe's 89 came against a Toronto Raptors team that Kawih could score 90 on. If you cant look at all the factors and see that their was an agenda to limit the greatness of this man to remove him from the goat argument then your blinded by the agenda & media that ignores his greatness to this day, except in greatest lil man arguments, regardless of size he is one of the greatest player ever on the same level as kobe jordan & lebron, not the mystical niche subsection of best lil man. He's on the mount rushmore of the NBA in my book

  • The Ralph Sampson fiasco started long before arriving in the NBA in 1983; At Virginia, he never won anything, was a obsessed with handling the ball like some oversized point guard and became infatuated with shooting a very unreliable jump shot that drove his coach's, Bill Fitch especially, absolutely crazy. Because he had to " hunch " to keep his dribble low while pretending to be a point guard running the break, he put a great deal of stress on his knees, and then his back gave him problems. He was also playing out of position when Hakeem arrived, moving to the power-forward spot when he should have remained at center. His best season was his second, back when he actually rebounded the ball and posted up and showed some heart. But it was fleeting since after the Celtics demolished him and the Rockets in the 1986 finals, the following season, Houston had a problem, and the got rid of Sampson to allow Hakeem to flourish and not have anyone get in his way. BTW, for years people were led to believe Sampson was 7'4...he wasn't, and actually was a little over 7'1 and very thin. He never took to building his body as the Rockets wanted him to, and his infatuation of shooting jumpers, which he missed at an alarming rate earned him a ticket out of the league. He was a loser in college and in the pro's and has no business being in the Basketball Hall of fame. Some people simply didn't see him play as I did and many others, and he was very overrated and a head case to Coaches.

  • People saying Iverson's ego, some say the NBA didn't want Allen's "image" to tarnish the league. It was both if you asked me. Pro sports leagues and exec's. can hype who they want, and stigmatize the image of certain players whenever they want. On the flip side, Iverson was overly emotional at times when he didn't necessarily need to be.
