Antawn Jamison Wants To Finish His Career With Bobcats

While it's usually taboo for players of any sport to talk about a potential future outside of the team they're currently playing on, especially in an incredibly "longing," manner, a certain lenience is placed on those who are long-time veterans with a short time remaining in the sport. Players will talk about their hopes to be on a championship team and their hopes to close out their careers where they started, or perhaps in their hometown.

That same amount of leniency should be awarded to former NBA All-Star Antawn Jamison and current Cleveland Cavaliers player, who told the Charlotte Observer that his dream was to finish his career with the Bobcats. Jamison said that it's been his dream "to be home," and have his parents and kids at home games as he calls it a career. These aren't the waning days of a player struggling, however, as Jamison has averaged 16.8 points and 4.8 rebounds per game this year thus far, to go along with 18 points and 6.7 rebounds per game last season.

It's very likely he'd still have something to offer a team next season, including the Cavaliers, but it's very likely that the Bobcats could find a place for him. He's a free agent following this season.
