Default Re: Retiring Derons' number

Quote:
getting your number retired isn't always about how good of a player you were, and you only played for 4-5 years, it's an award for more of a commitment to the franchise for a long time, and still being relatively good

He was committed to the franchise while here and I believe was with them longer than AD or Horny. Was the franchise commited to him?

Quote:
I don't see it getting retired under the circumstances that he left. AK will most likely and Millsap maybe one day as well if he stays.

It will be a joke if he doesn't. Other than Stockton and Malone and Sloan I guess no one deserves it more.
