The Beginning and Ending of a Career

I was surprised to hear the news today that Chris Webber announced his retirement. I remember being at the America West Arena (or possibly Phoenix Civic Center) for the 1993 NBA Draft when Webber was selected as the #1 pick. My dad used to take Kyle and I to draft days hosted by the Phoenix Suns, and I would fill in each of the players selected in the draft booklets that were handed out. I can't believe that was 15 years ago and I can't believe I am old enough to remember a player being drafted and now retiring.
