After 15 years in the NBA, I’m excited, sad, fortunate and grateful all in one breath. Hard to put into a caption all of the emotions it takes to try and accomplish your dreams. I wasn’t supposed to be here. Anybody that has beat the odds understands the mental and emotional strain it takes to inspire yourself on an uphill war, let alone inspire others. “The injury” gave me a chance to find and prove to myself (and the world) that I wouldn’t be defined by my circumstances. With my time in the League what I will be most proud of is the fact that my character, values and faith were tested, and I persevered. To my pops that told me to “go get the big ball” I THANK YOU. To my Grandpa that always showed me there was more to life than basketball I THANK YOU. To my Uncles that helped raise me like I was one of their own, THANK YOU. To my wife and kids…the future IS BRIGHTER than our past, and I couldn’t see myself taking on this chapter without you. To all of my teammates, coaches, TRAINERS, staff, my journey is a collection of experiences, and those of you that helped me along the way, THANK YOU! To all the fans and anybody else that inspired me, supported me, cheered for me, or even said good words about me, THANK YOU. “The greatest gift we can give is service to others” #Raiseaglass 🍷

文章內寫著:征戰NBA十五年之後,興奮、傷感、幸運以及感激都凝聚在這一念之間。要說明嘗試追逐夢想,並努力達成夢想所需的一切情感是很難的。任何一個曾經把不可能變為可能的人都理解,在一種非常困難的處境下激勵自己,要承受怎樣身體上和心理上的負擔,更不要說激勵他人了。那次傷病給了我一個機會去尋找,並向我自己以及全世界證明,我不會被我的遭遇所定義。在聯盟效力的這段時間裡,我將最為驕傲的一點是,我的性格、價值觀和信念受到了考驗,而我堅持了下來。」

「對於告訴我’用手去抓住那個大籃球’的爸爸,我想說聲謝謝。對始終告訴我生活大於籃球的爺爺,我想說聲謝謝。對將我視如己出的叔叔,我想說聲謝謝。對我的妻子和孩子……我們的未來將比過去更加光明,未來的這一篇章不能沒有你們的存在。對我所有的隊友、教練、訓練師以及工作人員,我的歷程集合了種種體驗,對那些一路上幫助我的人,我想說聲謝謝!對鼓舞我、支持我、為我加油打氣、或者甚至是誇獎我的所有粉絲以及其他人,我想說聲謝謝。’我們能贈予的最好禮物就是給他人的服務。’」

Livingston在在高中畢業後便踏入了職業籃球,2004年第一輪第四順位被洛杉磯快艇選中,生涯效力過9支球隊。

2014年與勇士隊簽約後成為勇士隊的首席替補控球後衛,與勇士隊拿過3次總冠軍。
