Bobby Jackson calls it quits

Bobby Jackson is retiring! Bobby Jackson is retiring! According to The Associated Press, Bobby Jackson is retiring. Not that the Celtics had definite plans to go after him at any point this season, but this gives us the answer to at least one potential question. I wish him well, and hopefully things pan out just fine for him as well as for the C's. 

The AP story:

"Bobby Jackson is retiring from the NBA.
The 12-year veteran guard, who spent six seasons with Sacramento, made the announcement Friday night
before the Kings’ preseason finale against the Utah Jazz.
Jackson averaged 9.7 points per game in his career. He was the league’s Sixth Man of the Year in
2002-03 with averages of 15.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists.
The former University of Minnesota star played for Sacramento last season but was not re-signed in the
offseason.
“It’s a tough day for me because I’m retiring from professionally playing the game I love,” he said.
“But it’s also a happy day because I’m retiring on my own terms.”
Jackson will work with the Kings as an ambassador, promoting the team in local appearances and handling
some scouting.
