Speaking to members of the media on Saturday, Laimbeer was open about his future coaching career.
I'm never going to be a coach again. I simply don't have that much energy. I don't have that kind of determination. It's completely consuming.
I'm not sure if I'll play basketball again in the future. It's too soon to tell. I had only taken six months off. I've never spent a summer at my Michigan farm. So that's something I'm looking forward to.
The 65-year-old had a highly successful NBA career, playing all but two seasons as one of the "Bad Boy" Pistons' centrepieces.
After a brief spell as an NBA assistant, Laimbeer returned to The W to coach the New York Liberty from 2012 to 2017, before moving on to the Las Vegas Aces and leading them to the 2020 NBA Finals.
Becky Hammond, a former Spurs assistant, now handles the show in Las Vegas. While Laimbeer says it was difficult to leave his ladies, he is pleased with the work Hammond has done.
