Which jersey would you retire ?

I like the idea of Anderson's jersey. I still have his in my closet, too. He was a great guy and still is. One of our greatest players ... would be really nice as a last act in the Waterhouse to retire his or as the first act in the new Arena as the writer says.

What do you think ?

Would love to retire Penny for sure. But, he wasn't a Magic for as long as Anderson was. And I've never been over the night and day, when we acquired him back (from NY) and then waived him the next day ...

Yes, me too. Could be a problem. Not everybodys darling ... ;)
Scott Skiles, never thought about him ... but, should be a guy to mention.
I think, maybe the biggest problem is that, the Bulls fpr example or the Lakers, the Celtics all retired jerseys of players which weren't just important for the franchise. They were Superstars of the whole league, which Nick Anderson wasn't. But I think, looking at his stats over his years, he was just a great player for us. The first Pick the franchise ever made (1989). Stayed long with us and returned back and is still working there.

"Nick Anderson leads the Magic in number of seasons played (10), number of games played (692), total field goals (4075), total field goal attempts (8976), steals (1004), and points (10,650)."

He had THE STEAL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFs16GWXT_w

I think it would just not be right to retire #32 and #25 don't.

We should definitely honor that guy by hanging his jersey in the rafters. #12 and maybe #14 will follow him :)

Too bad I can't do those sigs ... "unwantedplayer" did that sig for you or did he post it somewhere ?

Edit: Not that I want the same, but I'm already looking for a nice one and the style of yours is awesome.
