Robert Parish on the Hornets and Bernard King on the Nets - both ended their career on the same night in the Meadowlands. Unfortunately, so did Drazen Petrovic

This one was just discussed last night as Cone talked about grooving pitches to Cal Ripken, Jr. during his last game ever in 2001 (but Cal still went 0-for-3).  Cone was with Boston and I had completely forgotten that.

During Pete Maravich's final NBA season in 1979-80, he was traded by the Jazz, who had relocated from New Orleans to Utah that season, to the Boston Celtics. At the end of the season, a very burned out Maravich retired despite Larry Bird's attempts at convincing him to come back in 1980-81 and give a full season a try in Boston. Pistol Pete had a lot of personal problems and was mentally done with basketball.

Rick Barry is mainly remembered as a member of the San Francisco/Golden State Warriors. He actually had two separate stints there; 1965-67 and 1972-78. In between he went to the Oakland Oaks of the ABA for a season, then did a season with the Washington Capitals after the team moved east, and then two seasons with the New York Nets. Barry was traded by the Warriors to the Houston Rockets where he played from 1978-80. In Houston Moses Malone had Barry's favored 24, so Barry wore 2 at home and 4 on the road, something I'm pretty sure the NBA no longer allows.

Eddie Mathews played for the Braves in Boston, Milwaukee, and Atlanta from 1952 to 1966. He was traded to the Astros in 1967 and was traded at midseason to the Tigers finishing out 1967 there and winning a World Series ring as a backup infielder in 1968, retiring on that high note.

I feel this one is pretty well-known to baseball geeks, but I still like it:

Hank Greenberg with the Pirates in 1947. For that season, the Pirates moved the Forbes Field left field wall in and the area became known as "Greenberg Gardens". Greenberg only played that one season in Pittsburgh, but the "Gardens" soon became known as "Kiner's Korner".

Walt Frazier got traded by the Knicks to the Cavs ahead of the 1977-78 season. The Knicks had slumped badly in the mid 1970s after winning titles in 1969-70 and 1972-73 with a runner up spot in 1971-72. Frazier was still very good, but had started a slow and steady descent. He took a lot of the heat for the team's performance that rightly should have been aimed at Bob McAdoo and Spencer Haywood. The trade was psychologically devastating to Frazier who loved New York and hit such heights for the Knicks. The Cavs' were coming off of two straight playoff appearances and hoped Frazier could elevate the team, but his heart and mind weren't in it. He had some injury problems and played a combined 66 games over the three seasons he was in Cleveland.

I was a sad kid when Craig went to the Raiders and then Vikes; it hurt me even more to see Rathman on the Raiders
