Robbins
Perth Wildcats co-captain Brad Robbins (186-PG-85) has announced his retirement from the NBL.

Robbins says as a result of his recent injuries and the enormous demands the job has on his body, he can no longer give 100 per cent.

'Deciding to retire was a long process, a process of elimination, it wasn't a thing where I woke up one morning and decided, it was something thought out and planned and in the end I've made the decision, and I'm happy that I have made it,' said Robbins

'I'm very, very sad to leave the club and to leave my team mates, and that's something that I will miss very much, but I'll look forward to the new path that I take in my life.

'My career has been a big learning process. The people I've met along the way and the life lessons I've learned have certainly made me the man I am today. I will be forever grateful for the time I have had at the club.'

Wildcats head coach Rob Beveridge paid tribute to the player he's coached from a young age.

'You go through life with highs and lows, and I've been there with him for all of them. I've coached him since he was 16 years of age, and it's like watching your son grow up and develop into a man, and that's why I'm so proud of where he's at right now in his life,' Beveridge said.

'His decision to retire is one of the most courageous things I've seen. He knew it was time, he could have kept playing for a number of years, but what a courageous decision for him to make right now and go out on his terms.

'Brad has put his heart and soul into this club, every time he steps on the court he gives everything, and he sets extremely high standards. He is one of the reasons why we have become successful, because of the sacrifice and commitment he's made over the years. He's irreplaceable.'

Robbins played 213 NBL games including 175 for Perth, the 12th most of any Wildcat, in a career spanning nine years for three different NBL clubs.

The 27-year-old made his NBL debut in 2003 where he played one season for the Victorian Giants before shifting to Cairns for the 2005 season.

At the end of that season, the Taipans released Robbins and he relocated to WA with his partner, where he spent time in the SBL with the Willetton Tigers.

It was from there that he was picked up by the Wildcats on the recommendation of Cats legend Paul Rogers, who was also at Willetton, following the release of import, Steve Leven.

Following the 2009 season, the Wildcats underwent a serious player clean out and restructure, and Brad Robbins was one of only four players who was retained alongside current co-captain Shawn Redhage, Paul Rogers and Stephen Weigh.

In 2010, Robbins achieved the ultimate success by becoming a championship player, helping the Wildcats make history as they won a record fifth NBL title.

Following the championship season, Robbins was appointed Wildcats co-captain alongside Shawn Redhage, where he has served as an inspirational leader and a mentor to the club's development group.

Other highlights in Brad Robbins career include being a member of Australia's 2003 U/20 World Championship winning team and being named the Cats most improved player in 2008.

Perth Wildcats managing director Nick Marvin says the Perth Wildcats owe a lot to Brad Robbins.

'Brad Robbins and Shawn Redhage are the two players that still remain from the restructure of our club a few years ago and for good reason. They have proven to be warriors for what we stand for and have played a significant part in transforming us into the organisation we are today,' said Marvin.

'I'm saddened by his retirement but am truly proud and grateful to him for what he has achieved. As captain, he carried this team on his back on numerous occasions through our toughest times. I will always be indebted to him.'

The date of Robbins' retirement will be finalised shortly after discussions with management.
