Default Re: Retiring Derons' number

So in acknowledging A.K. as one of the top dozen players in franchise history, Iím labeling him a failure, in this sense: With his multiple talents, he was good enough to have No. 47 someday hang from the rafters. That wonít happen. Thatís his fault.

A.K. will be treated better, Iím sure, if he ever comes back with New Jersey or another NBA team. In Jazz history, he ultimately ends up being comparable to Thurl Bailey ó a good player, for a long time, just not meriting an enduring honor such as having his jersey retired.

Again where is the consistency. Layden, Griff, Horny, Eaton. AK and Deron have to be there too than. Surprised they didn't hang Hansen up there more than Bailey. LMAO!
