    Goodby to Marcus Camby

    39 year old Marcus Camby's career has come to a close.  Marcus led UMAss to the Final 4;  was a defensive All Pro; and a legndary shot blocker.  Career 10PPG and 10RPG.

    "The Houston Rockets will waive veteran big manMarcus Camby on Monday, reports Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle. Camby has not been able to participate in preseason or training camp since tearing his plantar fascia, leading the team to decide against keeping the 17-year veteran on their 15-man roster that must be submitted to the league by Monday.

    Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears was told by Camby's agent that the big man underwent surgery for the injury on Friday and will miss two to three months.

    Camby also dealt with foot injuries with the New York Knicks last season, playing in just 24 games. The 39-year-old center was trying to improve his condition without undergoing surgery that could keep him out for several months, but was unable to make enough progress for Houston to carry him into the season."

    "Marcus led UMAss to the Final 4;"

    A magical season, really an all time great sports experience, but one which was marred by the same Marcus Camby, whose behavior actually forced UMass to be stripped of those four wins, so officially Marcus did not have a final four appearance at all. 

    That was the good old days when Camby at his best was better than Tim Duncan. He could change a game just with his shot blocking.

     Camby ended up having a very respectable NBA career, battling through injuries at times. That surprise Knicks run to the finals was his finest moment. 

    I'll also always love and remember his "What's up Hartford?!!!" shoutouts to his homies....
