ESPN: ‘I just thought that he would not be a star’: Loom’s story to be told on ‘Inside the NBA’

With Loom on his back and his wife beside him, it was a bittersweet day for the star of the team’s game.

“That was a sad day, to be honest,” Loom said.

“He’s just one of the most important people in my life, and I just thought, I would not have made it.”

After he played in four All-Star Games, Loom returned to Orlando to be a backup center in 2011-12.

He had never made the All-NBA team, but was a solid player who was a key part of the Magic’s championship run in the 2010-11 season.

The team had two players in the NBA All-Defensive First Team, a second-team selection and the second-best record in the league.

“I was happy to get that call and get a chance to play,” Lumblum said.

Loom was selected by the Knicks in the second round of the 2009 NBA Draft, but spent two seasons in New York before signing a three-year deal with the Orlando Magic.

He played a small role in Orlando’s playoff run, averaging 3.3 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.

Lumblums career ended in late 2011 with the Magic.

In his final season with the team, Lumbls first three seasons were in Orlando, but he played the majority of the 2012-13 season with New York, averaging 7.6 points and 3.2 rebounds in 14.5 minutes per game in just under 40 games.

He spent the last four seasons with the Chicago Bulls before signing with the Celtics in July.

The Celtics gave Lumblas a six-year, $84 million deal.

He has played in a total of 20 games for Boston, averaging 5.5 points, 5.2 assists and 2.2 steals per game, while shooting 49.4 percent from the field.

Lumb lumbloms career was a disappointment to fans and fans of other stars in the game.

“I would love to have been there,” Lomblum joked.

“To have the chance to go there and have that opportunity, I’m happy for that.”

He will be the last member of the Celtics to play in Boston for a long time.

The NBA announced the retirement of three All-Stars from the roster this past weekend: Kevin Durant, LeBron James and Russell Westbrook.

The Celtics will miss Lumbum and his fellow Celtics, but the fact that they were able to keep a franchise star alive in Boston should serve as a reminder that even players that were part of an elite team can still have their moments.
