Should we retire Jordan's number throughout the NBA?
NO. Numbers are retired throughout leagues for importance greater than the game. Jackie Robinson is retired because he was courageous, and changed baseball, and our society forever. Jordan was the greatest player of all time, and did not do anything outiside of the NBA, besides gamble. If anyone should have their number retired, it would be Magic/Bird, as they truly saved the NBA, not Jordan. Still, I would not retire Magic, Bird, or Jordan's number throughout the NBA.
