So, let's assume Terry was "all star caliber". He never was an all star, but assuming he got robbed one or two years, is that worthy of having a jersey retired?

Here's a list of retired jerseys, by team:

Bruce was the backbone to the Spurs defense. He hit big shots constantly for them and was their lock down defender (even if most say it was dirty) for his whole career if not a great chunk of it. They credit him with as much for their Championships as Duncan, Parker and Gino. I didn't think his Jersey should be retired but I understood where the SPurs was coming from. Jason Terry's impact for the Mav's doesn't touch Bruces for the Spurs. Terry shouldn't get his Jersey retired at a McDonalds even if he bought the McDonalds himself.

I mean outside of the fact that you're a role player and no team on this planet would retire your jersey, GOD HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU PLAYING BASKETBALL. If there is a God, do you honestly believe the status of your jersey being retired is even on his mind?

Ridiculous statement. Terry is one of the best sixth men of all time. In his prime he was an All Star caliber player definitely more than a solid role player. Most teams would retire his jersey. The only team that wouldn't is the Lakers.


You missed the ":" after "ridiculous statement". Its an easy mistake to make. Without the ":" it lookas if you are saying nameant's statement was ridiculous when it is obvious that what you wrote after "ridiculous statement" was, in fact, your example of a ridiculous statement. Hopefully everyone noticed that you just missed the ":" and doesn't attack your stance which is pretty easily seen as a misunderstanding.

I have to agree with Terry here. He did contribute a lot to Dallas, and winning a championship. And looking at their rafters, the standards are not really that high to go up there.

Terry ALWAYS has talked a lot of ish and Cuban said he will probably end up in the rafters ... this is the Mavs we are talking about , the franchise who put a banner for each series they won during their title run ... we Lakers fans always forget we live in a fantasy world

No. Just no.

Also, was Terry speaking of himself in the 3rd person..

When you start talking about a jersey in the rafters and stuff like that, he took us to the Finals and was the first point guard to do it, and all those consecutive 50-game seasons,’’ Terry said. “And then finally winning the championship.


... or of Jason Kidd??? :freak2: :freak2: :freak2:

LOL cuban said he will not retire Kidd because Kidd hurt his feelings.
So glad I am not a Mavs fan.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.
You know who I am talking about.
