Stojakovic retired Monday night after 13 seasons. He retires as an NBA champion, having been a member of the Dallas Mavericks 2010-11 championship team.

He is the owner of the fourth-most three-pointers in NBA history. He showed his three-point threat in the Western Conference semifinals against the Los Angeles Lakers, including making 6-for-6 in the series finale. However, he struggled to contribute in the Finals against the Miami Heat.

“Thank you everyone for all the love, I knew it was time and had such a great time. NBA is my love and it will be always,” Stojakovic wrote on his Twitter page.

He has been hampered by back and neck issues in recent years.
