After stepping away from the NBA in 2006 due to chronic knee pain, Jonathan Bender has his sights set on a comeback
Written by Robert Stewart, The Times-Picayune   

Jonathan Bender had to step away from the game he loved in 2006, when he retired from the NBA after six years of dealing with chronic knee problems.

The 7-foot forward didn't regret the decision then. He knew it was part of some kind of plan.

"It's part of God's plan, " Bender said. "I didn't regret it. I haven't regretted anything about it. That's what I had to do at the time. I know it was a setup for something bigger."
