whoa I just looked up Rudy Larusso. wtf? averages like 14ppg for his career with the Lakers then goes to the Warriors, averages 21 per for 2 seasons including 22 (career high) in his last season.

and then he retires.

WTF.

I don't if this counts, but Reggie Lewis averaged over 20 ppg in his final season.

Karl Malone didn't reach 20 during his first and his last season, dang it.
Wilt didn't average 20 in his last season, either.

Interesting topic, let's see whether anyone can come up with another player.

Probably someone with a career ending injury is my guess.
