New Jazzy Nets has an OK reputation so far
Question Does Okur have any chance of having his number retired?

Lets say okur finishes his career in utah, what would he have to do to get his number raised? Is there anything he could possibly do in anyones mind? What exactly constitutes a player getting his number retired? Jeff didnt necessarily have the best stats but sure enough he's up there.

Just reading the article and memo's words it got me to thinking and besides the free agent talk is a little down right now, so why not a fresh topic?

Anything is possible for a franchise that retired Eaton and Frank's numbers. ROTFL!

Eaton deserved to have his # retired. Though Okur has a chance, I doubt it.

I guess if being tall and learning how to hold your arms up in the air makes you deserving. One of the most clueless players ever.

Two time defensive player of the year.
Led the league in blocks 4 seasons.
Career defensive rating equal to Dennis Rodman.
I don't even know why I talk with you anymore.

And had absolutely no talent or clue what so ever. He had a hard time even following the ball around. He'd turn around with his arms in the air and they throw a ball in to his fingers. Bravo Mark!

It took a while for them to adjust after he retired but they were better once they did. Instead of playing 4 on 5 at the offensive end they could actually go 5 on 5 and they were better defensively too without his lumbering ass out there.

LOL!. Rodman had skills other than being tall which he wasn't for what he did.

If you really think thats all Eaton did, why don't you go out and try to replicate it? This is one of the worst Arguements I've heard on ISH.
