Anyone know the reason why Ewing's #6 is retired in Orlando, but not Penny's #1 or Shaq's #32?

6 – "The Sixth Man – The Fans" (this was unretired in 2001–2002 for Patrick Ewing.)

That's weird and doesn't seem to make much sense.

They're not gonna retire Pennys Jersey. They already have given it away. McGrady wore it and I think Ariza wore it after him so....

Probably has something to do with Magic fans hating them when they left.
