Celtics Keyon Dooling on heart and soul after Game 7

Miami Florida. Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports in Florida reports former Boston Celtics basketball player Keyon Dooling has decided to retire from playing basketball instead of playing for the Miami Heat after playing in the National Basketball Association for 12 years.

Kenyon's agent confirmed the news on Sunday that Dooing wants to spend more time with his family after he was released by the Celtics on September 21.

The statement read "Keyon has decided that he has served the NBA 12 good years and that's time to pursue other interests and spend more with his family. He will never forget his time with the Boston Celtics."

Tomasson said it is unlikely the Celtics who traded for Dooling last December would have released him if there was a possibility he would play for the Miami Heat like former Celtics player Ray Allen for played for the Heat in the 2004-05 basketball season.

Dooling, 32, who re-signed with the Celtics in July. It is uncanny that the Celtics released him two months later. Dooling was Vice President of the National Basketball Association Players Association. Maybe that may be the reason the Celtics relased him or maybe he was getting long in the tooth.
