I think you've got it right, nyr2k2. He was a great player. He got paid for it. He went into steep decline much faster than nearly any other player I've ever seen. He continued to do his job and by all accounts was a good teammate and mentor in HFD.

Sure, it eases the blow to be set financially (hopefully he had good financial advisors), but doesn't change the fact that he can't do the one thing he loves and knows (or knew) how to do well. I sincerely hope he's got other career ambitions/interests that he finds fulfilling.
