    I can't believe they gave that scrub ,Juwan Howard, Cat's number.
    Why not give Tyrone Lue Steve's number and Clarence Weatherspoon Dream's number?

    Why can't they give Juwan like Derick Chevious number or Larry Robinson or Sam Mack's number?

    I would say Buck Johnson, but that would be disrepecting BLADE.

    Juwan sucks, trade him now for someone who can play Defense and Rebound.

    That "scrub" has a career average of 18 and 7. I'm as big a Cat fan as there is, but b*tching about giving away his number is ridiculous.

    I admit Im not a Juwan Howard the Duck fan.
    But giving him Cutino's number??

    What did Cutino do to deserve this? was it Kim Katrall? Maybe Les Alexander was mad she didnt go out with him.

    At least give Juwan Calvin's number, I mean Juwan can only play with girls instead of NBA players!

    Cat Jerseys are on sale - special mark down. Why don't you go buy a few? Have your own "retirement party."

    that was juvenile and uncalled for.

    and besides, Calvin's number is retired.

    Last I checked Mobley wasn't a Rocket anymore. So he doesn't have a Rocket jersey # taken.

    If Juwan Howard wants the #5, it's available.

    I kind of wish he had taken another number, I mean its really not a big deal but Cuttino gave so much to this team and I enjoyed his time here so much I'm just not over the trade yet.

    Since when was #5 "Cat's Number"? Juwan's been playing in the for 10 years, as opposed to 6 for Cuttino. He's been wearing 5 since his rookie year, and would probably have worn it in college had it not already been worn by Jalen Rose.

    Maybe I'd let Juwan Howard have
    Mitch Wiggins and Lewis Loyds numbers.

    Didnt they bring Juwan Howard to Orlando to help out Tracy McGrady?

    This dude sank Orlando, Washington, Dallas (yes they did better with Edjuado Naraja), Denver to the bottom of the NBA cellar.

    What happens after Juwan gets traded? His former team mysteriously gets better.

    I GUARANTEE that the Magic will have better record POST Juwan.

    Cuttino was a loyal Rocket, he stuck it through Barkley, Dream, Pippen, Steve, Yao.. He deserved better than having some dude who can't guard Chucky Brown his number.

    You didn't see Tyrone Lue get Steve's number, Right?

    This is not disrespecting anybody. #5 is Howard's number. Why should he change numbers when nobody on the current roster wears his?
