Broadcasting icon Ralph Lawler will retire as the voice of the Los Angeles Clippers following the 2018-19 season.

“My wife Jo and I have grappled with this decision annually for 15 years,” Lawler said in a statement on Wednesday. “I now realize that I have spent half of my 80 years as a part of this team. The Clippers are a big part of my life’s DNA. Yet, it is important that we have some ‘life after basketball.’

“The current ownership and management team has been so supportive, and we are forever grateful for our years with the Clippers. I cannot express how much I appreciate the fans. I am looking forward to thanking as many of them as possible in person during this final season.”
