DOUG CHRISTIE ANNOUNCES HE IS READY TO RETURN TO PLAY IN THE NBA
August 24, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsAfter months of speculation and rumors of retirement, Doug Christie has officially announced his intentions of returning to play in the NBA.
Spending months undergoing intense rehabilitation and conditioning has put Christie in fantastic shape and made him eager to join an NBA team at their 2006 training camp. During a recent interview, Christie commented that, “I am blessed to now have gained endurance, agility and quickness at a level that I had not previously experienced.”
Christie, a first Team and a two time All Defensive Second Team member who has over 1,500 career steals, 3,000 assists and 2,500 defensive rebounds, is a defensive force, which has sports gurus around the league agreeing that his presence on the court has been sorely missed and that whichever team is successful in signing him will benefit greatly from his veteran leadership and versatility.
Drafted by the Seattle Supersonics in the first round of the 1992 NBA Draft, Christie has played in Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, Orlando, Dallas and Sacramento where he enjoyed much success. For more information on Doug Christies return to the NBA, please contact Bradley Marshall at 206-324-4842.
