Though she just signed with the Indiana Fever earlier this spring, it will be Yolanda Griffith’s last team. The legendary forward announced today she’ll retire after this WNBA season – her 13th as a pro. Griffith is a two-time Olympic gold medalist, a seven-time WNBA all-star, a member of the WNBA’s all-decade team, and will have played pro ball for 13 years when she steps down.
“My career in the WNBA has given me a lot of great memories and friendships,” said Griffith. “At this time, I, with my family, have made the decision to make this season my last. I look back on all the great basketball memories, my accomplishments and my life as a WNBA player, with a smile. But I look forward to my future goals with enthusiasm.”
