Abney calls it a career after succumbing to injury - Dec 9, 2012

Lawrence
Abney
From December 4, 2012.
Larry Abney's (203-F-77, agency: Dream Team Management, college: Fresno St.) basketball career has taken him across the globe for more than a decade but the feeling of flying high above the rim in front of thousands of Townsville Crocodiles fans is one memory that will always stick with him.

The two-time Crocs MVP has called time on his 12-year career on advice from his surgeon, who discovered a small hole in his thigh bone.

Abney had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last week to clean up cartilage in his knee and sought advice from doctors before making a decision whether he would return to the court.

But the 35-year-old found out on Friday that his dream of helping Townsville to a maiden NBL championship would not be able to come true and he hopes to return to his California home before Christmas.

"I have a hole in my thigh bone in the joint where my knee goes and it will continue to get worse if I continue to try and play at this level and I will eventually need a knee replacement," Abney said.

The import said it was a surprise the knee injury - which has plagued him since his arrival in Townsville - ended his career after never having injured himself worse than a sprained ankle.

"I always pictured if I had a knee injury it would be in a blaze of glory coming off a rim and gripping my knee in pain," Abney said with a laugh.

"But I guess this was something that has built up over years and years of playing and this is the result of it."

The injury is a disappointing end to a successful career for Abney, who has played professionally on six continents for nearly two dozen teams.

"I've got so much to be thankful for and I'm not crying and don't want anyone to cry for me," Abney said.

"It's been an amazing run, way more than I ever set out to do but I did have a vision when I signed with Townsville that more than likely this was going to be my last year regardless. But I did have a vision of coming back and winning a championship with Townsville and going away like that."

He said his stints in Townsville, where he played for two seasons between 2005 and 2007 before returning this year, had been some of his best and he even got a southern cross tattoo on his arm after leaving the first time because he enjoyed it so much.

"I remember being here the first time when we'd sell out The Swamp and just throwing up that Birdman and having a crowd respond to that, you know," Abney said of his trademark post-dunk move.

"It's something that I'll probably never emulate again in my life but definitely I'll have memories of it forever."

Abney was able to let the bird fly once more for the Crocs faithful, dunking during the round six match against the New Zealand Breakers at The Swamp.

Thon Maker
Aussies Maker and Dellavedova Were Key for Bucks in First Round - 3 days ago
Despite all of the talk about Milwaukee's Greek Freak, the Bucks were anchored by a couple of Aussies as they competed with the Boston Celtics in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. Thon Maker(216-F-97) and Matthew Dellavedova were key pieces for the Bucks, who have, if nothing else, proved that they are going to be a solid contender in the Eastern Conference for years to come, despite losing in seven games in the first round. Maker was an interesting case in the postseason, as he did no...   [read more]

Kyle Harvey
Harvey's double-double lands him State League Player of the Week award - 3 days ago
KYLE HARVEY 26-year old forward Kyle Harvey (196-F-91) had a very impressive game in the last round for Ipswich F. and receives a Interperformances State League Player of the Week award for round 10. He had a double-double of 36 points and 17 rebounds, while his team crushed Brisbane C. (1-2) with 22-point margin 112-90. The game rather meaningless between the teams, which do not have any influence on top of the standings in QBL. Ipswich F. is placed at 10th position in their group in Au...   [read more]
