Bruno made a similar comment during the pregame show Friday, which we heard right as we were parking the car.

He basically said (paraphrasing) don't confuse the fact that Reggie is "laying it all on the line as one last valient effort" with "Reggie hasn't lost anything" or "Reggie could play at this level again next season."

I think that's right. Reggie doesn't have much left in the tank, but he's making sure it all gets used before its all over.

He's made his decision to leave, and that is fine. I honestly think this team cannot take the next step until he leaves. Since he has shown he cannot play as well with Jermaine around. He becomes too passive. So maybe this is a good thing

Whatever, I mean whatever Reggie decides to do is fine with me.

Go out now, while memories of your 39 point game are still fresh in people's minds. I wish my final memory of MJ was him hitting the winner vs. the Jazz, but unfortunately, I always remember him hobbling around in a Wizards jersey. Same thing with Barry Larkin. (I know that's baseball, but it's relevant to this topic.) Instead of remembering Lark being the first SS to go 30/30, I remember him coming up lame running to third last year against the Cards.

He's making the right decision.

GO out when you're still a starter and team leader, rather than get in the way of the younger guys on the way up.

I wish my final memory of MJ was of Reggie beating him in 1998. And finish the series in game #6. I wanted to watch him walk out of MSA as a loser. :(

Exactly.....

When Jermaine is on the court, Reggie is almost useless.

When Jermaine isn't playing, Reggie is still an extremely affective player.

I think I mentioned this before, but nobody really bit: why not just let him retire. Then, if next March we're on a title run, let's just resign him. He can be a little insurance for us and maybe he can finally get that title. He'll come back refreshed and rested, ready to do what we need. And if next March we're still feeling the effects of this year, he doesn't have to go through it. I suspect that a few months after he's gone, he's going to want to be back.
