    Good for him, I guess.

    6 years and 1 title seems like a weak argument for a jersey number retirement.
    In my view, I thought something like a retired number warranted like....a 15-20 year run with a franchise. Someone who was the face of your franchise for a long time.

    But these days the bar for retirement seems to be getting lower. It's not a disrespect thing. I just think to retire a number forever requires a lot.

    They have ONE title in the last 34 years and counting and KG was their best player for their championship run. He turned that whole franchise around.

    5x allstar, DPOY, ALL-nba, all-defense etc.

    Like 3 people got their jerseys retired just for being Bill Russell's teammate. KG is just fine :skip:

    KG turned the team around completely on the defensive end and if he hadn't gotten hurt the second year they would have had a real shot at back to back titles. It is what it is.. he deserves it

    So....
    Shaq in Miami
    Jason Terry in Dallas
    Iggy in GS
    Pau in LA
    Rasheed Wallace in Detroit

    all unquestionably deserve to have their jerseys retired by those squads? :jbhmm:
