It's time to express appreciation for everything they've done during their legendary NBA runs, especially as players like LeBron James, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, and Carmelo Anthony
Any NBA fan will enjoy September when their favourite teams and players return and get ready for the new campaign. We loved watching these guys, some of whom have been in the league for a while.
A Hall of Fame career, however, ends just as all wonderful things do. Many of these guys are closer to retiring than they appear when you look at them more closely.
LeBron James, who remains the league's biggest name, should be mentioned first.
The King is entering his 20th season and, although continuing to perform at an All-Star level, he isn't getting any younger.
Putting all of James' extraordinary talent aside, we could be witnessing one of his final seasons at the calibre to which we have all become used.
