Michael Redd To Officially Retire from the NBA

Buckeye great Michael Redd will announce his retirement from the NBA Wednesday night in Milwaukee.

The Bucks drafted Redd with the 43rd overall selection of the 2000 NBA Draft and he went on to play 11 seasons with Milwaukee, averaging 20.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game. Redd concludes his career 4th on the all-time Bucks list for scoring with 11,554 points.

Redd holds the Milwaukee record for points in a game – his 57, coming against Utah on Nov. 11, 2006 broke Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's old mark of 55 points that stood for 35 years – along with the team record for three-pointers in one quater (eight triples in the fourth quarter of a game with Houston in 2002).

A Columbus native, Redd starred for the Buckeyes from 1997-2000 and teamed with Scoonie Penn to lead the Buckeyes to the 1999 Final Four.

A great run, by all accounts, for the smooth-stroking lefty.

Welp. I'm old now. I was at OSU when he played. Sigh . . .
Congrats on a fantastic career.

Here's to a happy, long, prosperous retirement for one of our great hoopsters.

The only thing that's new in the world is the history that we have forgotten.

The alt text on the first image of Redd crapped me up.

One of my all-time favorites. Loved how he played his entire career (with the exception of his final season in PHX) for the team that drafted him - in small-market Milwaukee.

A rarity in today's NBA, though I wish he had come to the Cavs when they offered him a max deal.

No kidding.  That killed me.
But congrats on a very solid career to one of my all time favorite Buckeyes.

Well, at least we ended up with Larry Hughes...

You can't downvote yourself.  I've tried.

You know you had a good career when there is a question about you on Jeopardy.

Spent BIG $ to watch him in the NCAA's at Knoxville and Nashville.    If not for Terrance Dials, Redd would be my favorite Buckeye BBaller.
