Retirement is one of the toughest decisions made by any sportsperson on this planet. It is not very easy to give up something you love. The decision usually is a result of a lot of factors such as frustrations, age, fitness, or even not being able to adjust to the standards of the game.

We have seen a lot of players retiring, some getting their best-received farewells, and some not in a very warming farewell. We have seen players who have retired from their professional careers but never wanted to give up.

Today we discuss top 5 basketball players who made a comeback after deciding to retire.

Honorable Mention :

# Brandon Roy

Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns, Game 5
Brandon Roy

Brandon Roy was the Rookie of the Year in the 2006-2007 NBA season and the third Trail Blazer to achieve it. He was one of the most talented shooting guards of that time. He averaged 16.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game in his rookie season. His career average is 18.8 points, 4.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game. He is a three-time NBA All-star with a career-high of 52 points.

The only trouble with this guy was his knee injuries. His injuries forced him to retire before the start of 2011 season. He left the NBA out of frustrations but came back in 2012-2013 season with Minnesota Timberwolves and was forced to step-out just after five games played because of a season-ending knee surgery.
