There has been whispers for months that Miami Heat F Shane Battier, 35, may retire at season's end and recently he indicated that his leaving the NBA may very well be his last.  

"In all honesty, this is probably my last year, and so, I'm not saving myself for anything," he said "My mindset is really, 'Just go 'til the wheels fall off.' If that means I crash and burn at Christmas, that's the way I go out....But I'm not saving myself for anything. My role now, with this starting lineup, is just playing my tail off and bring energy and, you know, go as long as I can go."
