Default Should Kerry Kittles Get His Jersey Retired?



His numbers may not be jaw-dropping, but he was a key contributor to the emergence of the late 90s-early 00s Nets. I think it would be fitting to raise his jersey to the rafters when the team moves to either Brooklyn or Newark.

the way kittles used to disappear at clutch moments in the playoffs is my only real problem with him. Whenever we needed a big shot he either made sure he wasn't gonna take it, or missed it if he had to.

sure, why not?
he was the ace man-to-man defender for the team and one of jason kidd's top two thoroughbreds on the break.

third-most important player behind the trips to the finals IMO...

Sure. Big part of the Finals teams. I'd retire his jersey.

He wasnt really a stat guy. He was a great defender and a good enough shooter to play alongside Jason Kidd. He was a huge part of the back to back finals teams, 3rd most important like Gigantes said. Right behind K-Mart and Kidd.

one thing i always thought was funny was how so many players opn that team had a "k" sound in their name (letter "k" or a hard "c" that sounded like "k").

'culloch
kidd
kittles
keith
collins
kmart
'calabrine...
