Sentiabria 23 2015 g. Dzheison Richardson/Kar'ery Zavershenie However, Richardson began having discomfort in his right knee less than a month later, and an MRI indicated bone spurs. On September 23, 2015, he announced his retirement from the NBA, claiming his worry that continuing to play might affect his ability to walk for the rest of his life. He had been playing with the pain tolerance of a man half his age, which probably contributed to his early departure from the Clippers.
His final record was.500 (76-76), which wasn't great but also not terrible given the injuries he suffered this season. He will be remembered as one of the best power forwards in Clipper history.
Richardson first came into the league as a first-round pick (seventh overall) of the Sacramento Kings in 2001. In four seasons with them, he averaged 16.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 0.9 steals per game. He was then traded to the Atlanta Hawks, where he played two seasons before being acquired by the Clippers via trade deadline deal in 2005. With Los Angeles, he reached the playoffs each year he was there, finishing second in voting for the 2005 NBA Most Improved Player award. He ended up winning the trophy after leading all rookies in scoring (23.7 ppg) and rebounding (10.1 rpg).
Richardson signed with the Atlanta Hawks on August 18, 2015. However, Richardson began having discomfort in his right knee less than a month later, and an MRI indicated bone spurs. He had surgery to remove the bone spurs on September 16. Richardson is expected to be ready for training camp this fall.
Richardson was drafted ninth overall by the Sacramento Kings in the 2005 NBA draft. He played three seasons with the Kings before being traded to the Charlotte Hornets in 2008. Richardson spent one season with the Hornets before moving on to play for the Brooklyn Nets and Seattle SuperSonics. Richardson started all 82 games for the Nets last season, averaging 10.1 points per game.
He will wear number 34 with the Hawks.
Richardson will bring depth at both forward positions to a team that lost Jeff Teague to the Minnesota Timberwolves in free agency. As a rookie in 2005-06, Richardson helped lead the Kings to the playoffs as they made their first ever appearance. Since then, he has not been able to help them win any further than the second round. Last year with the Nets, Richardson showed that he can still contribute even when injured, averaging 10.1 points per game.
Richardson will provide experience and size at the four position.
Richardson went on to play for Manchester United for almost 80 games and scoring 11 goals. After leaving the club, he joined Sunderland under Keane in 2007. Richardson later played for Fulham, Aston Villa, and Cardiff City. In 2016, he announced his retirement. He was 34 years old.
He started his career at Manchester United as an attacking midfielder and also used as a forward. Under manager Alex Ferguson, he developed into a goal scorer with an eye for goal. In 2004, he scored 21 goals in all competitions which is still today's record for most league goals scored by a Red.
After helping the team win the Premier League twice, he moved to Sunderland where he spent three seasons. During his time at Sunderland, they were promoted from the Championship once. In 2006, he signed for Fulham and helped them gain promotion from the Championship the next season. In 2008, he moved to Aston Villa and managed to help them avoid relegation from the Premier League. In 2009, he moved to Cardiff City and ended his career at the club without scoring any goals. He retired at the age of 35.
Kieran Richardson has had a successful career so far with many trophies won along the way. He has been named in the PFA Team of the Year twice and also made it into the UEFA Champions League Best XI in 2005 when he featured for Manchester United.
Longtime decoders of Pete Carroll's talk are well aware that this pretty much means "you're gone." And for Richardson, who has been injury prone throughout his career and was on injured reserve in his two seasons with the Washington Football Team, he's indeed off the team.
