We don't win a ring without KG. He should be retired.
Itís only fitting that there is one blank square left next to #34.I think they may be waiting for Minnesota to do it first? Heís clearly so beloved here (got the loudest ovations every time is was shown/mentioned), so itís only a matter of time. He changed not only the culture here, but how others view this city.I will say itís a true shame when Pierce (and Garnett) gets his number retired and Ray not only isnít there, but no video, letter, anything. Barely mentioned and nothing more. Never would I have imagined how bad the blood would be between Ray and the team.

He should be retired.we don't win a ring without Allen either. Should he also go up?No. There is a discernible difference btw the two. It was there in the summer of '07 and it continued to be there during the years of contention. KG & Ray never were equals. That's before even getting into any of the MIA stuff (which actually doesn't move the needle for me one way or another). The KG acquisition changed everything. It put the Celtics back on the map for the casual fans in the area. It's what got them plastered all over national tv. KG is what created the buzz, changed the culture, & ultimately was the anchor on those teams. KG & Ray never were equals. This isn't a basketball skill thing.
I am getting mixed signals from people on this and man I hope they retire his number. Grande has seemed to suggest there is zero chance it doesn't happen, while in contrast I saw Paul Pierce say it will be a long time before they retire another number. So deserved and an absolute all time great player of a very special level.
Paul insinuated on the Jump on ESPN that 5 is going next to him next season. Not sure if he is simply suggesting it or knows it.
