Nick Collison's number to be retired

+

I have mixed feelings. Collison had a long career with just one franchise and I respect him, but even if he'd spent all those seasons in Seattle I don't think he'd deserve to have his number in the rafters with MacMillan, Brown, etc. The franchise's new city seems to be desperate to find a player to honor and Durant is clearly not going to be given that honor. So Collison. Which seems a stretch to me, but we're not talking about Sonics retired numbers and hey it's nice for Nick Collison.
