David Lee’s days in the NBA are officially over, and it looked like he had one incredible retirement party.

The former San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors player shared a couple photos and a video from his retirement party over the weekend. His party, which caps off a 12 year career, for some reason even included a bunch of fireworks.

Apparently, the whole retirement party was a big surprise planned by his fiancee Caroline Wozniacki. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Hottest Photos Of Caroline Wozniacki On The Internet)

“An epic night celebrating my retirement with my friends and family! Thank you to my amazing fiancée @carowozniacki for planning the surprise,” Lee captioned the post on Instagram.

Lee had a nice NBA career, and made a ton of money. However, I’m not sure that justifies fireworks blasting off into the sky. Sure, being an NBA player is really cool, but maybe we should save the fireworks for players the caliber of LeBron James or Steph Curry.

If David Lee gets fireworks then where is the line drawn? Either way, I think it’s safe to say his biggest win was when he got engaged to Wozniacki. Lots of people make the NBA. Not too many people end up engaged to a smoke show superstar tennis player. That takes real talent.
