Vladimir Radmanovic Retires From Basketball

Bremertonian

The former Seattle Supersonic forward has decided to call it a career after 12 years in the NBA.

In June of 2001 the Seattle Supersonics drafted a floppy haired, twenty year old from Bosnia and Herzegovina with the 12th overall pick.

Vladimir Radmanovic was never a superstar in Seattle, but he was always enjoyable to watch.  In 03-04 he averaged a career high points per game with 12.0 and a month before he was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers, "Broadway Joe" as Kevin Calabro called him that night, scored a career high 30 points in Madison Square Garden against the Knicks.

He was also part of that magical 2005 team that gave the eventual champion, San Antonio Spurs, everything they could handle.  Well except Vlade.  He was injured.  Some thought if he would been healthy it would have been a different series.  Sonics would have needed a healthy Rashard Lewis too.

He was still a very important part of that team.

In the 12 years Radmanovic was in the league he appeared in 737 regular season games, scored 5879 points, grabbed 2784 rebounds, dished out 998 assists and blocked 263 shots.  He shot 41.5% from the field, 37.8% from three and 75.8% from the free throw line.

Outside the Sonics and Clippers he also played for the Lakers, Bobcats, Warriors, Hawks and Bulls.
