05:31 PM ET 05.20 | The New York Knicks could be in need of another point guard next season as Pablo Prigioni considers heading back to Europe following his first NBA season. With his wife reportedly pushing to return to Spain along with their two children, Prigioni could opt to end his brief NBA career despite proving he belongs. Coming off a solid postseason performance in the Knicks' elimination against the Indiana Pacers, Prigioni refused to publicly discuss his plans for next season, but it's easy to imagine New York wanting him back. The 36-year-old proved a useful role player for the Knicks, averaging 3.5 points and 3.0 assists in 16.2 minutes per game this season. His ability to knock down three-pointers (40 percent) and run the offense could be used by many NBA teams should he make his services available.

I'm not sure I'll ever understand a person who marries someone in a certain profession and doesn't realize or accept the fact that they're intrinsically married to that person's career as well. When you marry a cop, soldier, diplomat, athlete, et al... You have to accept that they're going to be plying their trade (and their passion) in places you don't/won't like.

On a basketball note, I'm somewhat surprised that Prigioni played as well as he did.

I have a friend who is session musician. A hired gun. He has played and toured with top acts who I won't list here, but if I did, you would all know. His now wife met him as that, and enoyed all of the perks it brought while they were dating. Now that they're married she bellyache's and complains about him being on the road, the hours he keeps, and his inability to "be there" the way other husband's and father's are. Never mind the fact that his work affords them a pretty nice home and lifestyle. All she seems to see now is that he's not there, by her estimation, the way Bob the carpenter, Sal the plumber, or Pete the shoe salesman is.

Meanwhile Bob, Sal, and Pete's wives aren't driving luxury SUV's and going home to park them in the garage of a 5000 square foot home, in an expensive suburb of NYC.

Another good move. And they say jocks aren't too bright.
