Players Whose Jerseys Should be Retired, But the Club Folded

D-Mac for Victoria is the first one that springs to mind, depending on how United feel on any given day about which bits and pieces of NBL history they own.

Dwight at West Sydney?

Did Rose get his retired at Townsville in the end?

Canberra Cannons dynasty comes to mind straight away. Which players had their number retired by the club? Smyth and McEachin?

Townsville Crocodiles

David Blades #7
Robert Rose #21
100% Croc #100%

Can't argue with this list especially the last entry - by far and away the best NBL mascot ever.

Defunct clubs:

Newcastle Falcons

5 Michael Johnson

West Sydney Razorbacks

32 Bruce Bolden
45 Simon Dwight

All others apparently had none, apart from Cannons which are unknown.

Surely the Cannons retired a few.

The Falcons also retired Denis Kibble's #6.

The Cannons retired Smyth and McEachin, I think.

Rose #21
Norton #6
Crawford #8 or #17

There are a few guys that would be pretty close like Rillie Reidy Hinder

I really miss my Crocs...

Can a player have their jersey retired at more than one club?

Without looking at his stats i would have thought Bolden was a much better player at SE Melb than the razorbacks

Norton #6
Why not just retire the jersey of everyone who ever played?

First time I ever saw all of the starting 5 subbed off for the entire bench. Haven't seen it since

Is Tony Ronaldson retired anywhere? 665 games, 430 wins, 20 consecutive finals series.

Four grand finals with two championships with SEM Magic. Back to back grand finals with the Titans. Made the grand finals with Perth also.

Could you make an argument for Joe Ingles for the Dragons?

Sam McKinnon? And which club?

This is the problem, guys have historically moved with such frequency or had clubs pulled out from under them that retiring jerseys ends up becoming a question of retiring a period of their career rather than the sum total.

I would imagine Brisbane retires Mackinnon and CJ's numbers eventually given they were starters on the title team and both have retained links as AC's.
