Mavericks want to Retire Tyson Chandler’s Number?

Ok, I get it. A guy helped you win a title, and you’ve done nothing else since then.

We see where Rick Carlisle believes the Mavericks should retire Tyson Chandler’s number.

The guy has two seasons with the team, spent one at a time!

There’s a list of players who have had their number retired with less than two years on that team. Malik Sealy was killed in an auto accident, so the Timberwolves retired his number. Nate Thurmond is an Ohio state legend, who in fact does not like having his number retired by the Cavaliers; the same is true for Pete Maravich and the Pelicans. His number was retired by the Hornets. Finally, Michael Jordan’s number was retired by the Heat for unknown reasons.

You will be surprised at this, but the one team I really like how they honor retired players is the Dallas Cowboys. It’s almost as difficult to get in their Ring of Honor than to make it into the Football Hall of Fame. These honors should be reserved for the best of the best, but most teams retire numbers as stunts.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
