During the past 10 seasons, Collison helped lead the Thunder to the second-best record in the National Basketball Association (.608; 489-315). And on Thursday, through the help of a moving announcement told to ESPN.com's Royce Young, that career came to an end. He left the Jayhawks as one of the school's most-decorated players and was named national college player of year in 2003.
