    A man who is ashamed of his real name should not have his number retired. Predrag does not deserve this honor.

    That whole starting 5 should have their numbers retired including a jersey for Aldeman. That team was just a joy to watch and rematch even today. Beautiful passing and teamwork. They were the San Antonio Spurs of today. The late 90's and early 2000's were dominated by one on one play and it was nice to see a team of 5 guys working together.

    Besides, they were totally robbed in the 2002 WCF. They deserve all the accolades.

    Yup.

    The Kings getting robbed so hard is basically what put me off watching NBA basketball anymore. I hung on for quite a number of years, but when Tim Donaghy basically confirmed that game 6 was fixed (as if anyone with eyes didn't know that already), I essentially threw up my hands and walked away.

    Now I pretty much just watch soccer. And I used to follow the NBA religiously.

    Meh dont think he deserved it. He was slightly better than Steve Novak and there's no way a team would retire Novak's jersey

    Don't forget Hedo Tukoglu, Gerald Wallace, and Bobby Jackson off the bench. Pollard was an awesome role player as well... also the best cheerleader you could ask for.

    Just loved that team. Not only a great, unselfish style of play, but they were all nice guys... except maybe Webber, I suppose he was the one diva.

    You mean besides being way more athletic, an infinitely better passer, and playing entirely decent defense? As opposed to Novak, who can't guard a 5th-grade girl?

    Good for him, absolutely one of my favorite players to watch, growing up. Too bad he had to get his ring with the Mavs
