Foyle Opts To Retire After 13 Seasons

Adonal Foyle has decided to retire after 13 seasons in the NBA.

A right-knee injury often prevented him from practicing with Orlando during the 2009-10 season.

"It just never really quite got back to where I could feel like I could keep pushing it and do what I wanted to," Foyle said.

"Basically, I never really got back to that place where I felt like I could make a contribution. My thing has always been that the game has really been too good to me to really be around it if I can't give anything to it."

Because of his retirement, Foyle said he likely will resign his position as first vice president of the National Basketball Players Association within the next few days.

Howard Continues To Work With Olajuwon

Dwight Howard has made big strides on offense this offseason thanks to his workouts with NBA legend Hakeem Olajuwon.

Howard plans to spend another week working out with Olajuwon before the season after spending time with him in Texas during the NBA Finals.

"Basically, what he was saying was I have to become a person that is not afraid to do anything on the floor," Howard said. "He said right now there's only certain parts of my game that I'm not afraid to do, but other parts I am. I have to be able to do all of those things, basically. That's the biggest thing I took from him.

"I just think he was watching and seeing me play for a while," Howard added. "All the things we worked on, he was just wondering why I never used those things in a game. He saw all the things that I could do, and he was very impressed. He said that I cannot be afraid to do all these things."
