The athlete’s decision became more frequent after, in his last matches, he suffered back and knee injuries that would take longer recovery time to return to normal. Terrence Ross also stated that he would like to be closer to his family.

“I think now, especially after so long, I’m done. I’m starting to see how much I love being home and just playing the role of being a dad. Just being part of my family”, said Terrence Ross on his podcast after deciding to take on new paths in the future.

Previously, there was speculation that the player could soon announce his decision to retire from playing as in an interview he gave indications that something could change. “I’m watching these games and instead of thinking, ‘God, I really miss being there,’ the first thing that came to my mind was, ‘OK, Boston is playing New York at home. They’ll be home real early,’ my mind was in a lot of areas other than ‘I can’t wait for the next game’”, he said.

Terrence Ross leaves the NBA with an important legacy. The player was discovered by the University of Washington and in his first year in the league he won the NBA Slam Dunk Challenge, which led to opportunities to play for the Toronto Raptors, Orlando Magic and Phoenix Suns teams.
