    I would love the see the franchise honor Roy this season by having the team play with jerseys that don a number 7 patch, like how they honored the late great Maurice Lucas last season.

    What are your guys' thoughts on this?

    Either that, or retire his number (if they can, I don't know if a team can retire a number so soon after the player retires).

    I agree. They should retire his number. Boston retired Bird's jersey the year he retired I believe, if not the next.

    I think both I mean Lucas was retired in the stands and they had the patch so both would be awesome.

    Guys, you wear the remebrance patch when somebody passes on.

    B-Roy is still kickin', and ya'll might even run into him online, when playing the new Call of Duty.

    I don't think B is ready for that ceremony just yet. He may or may not play but no doubt he'll be back in the NBA on some level. Certainly, for nothing short of being a hero, he deserves the honor. Heart goes out to him, not gonna lie it really hit me hard last night,

    I agree with Tobyus.  No patch since that's reserved for when someone passes away.  But I definitely think a retirement ceremony should be in the near future.  I thought about it being on Opening Night, but A) I won't be able to be there and B) Bull Frog is right...just not quite time yet.  Maybe at the end of the season instead?  Whenever it happens, he no doubt deserves it.  Going to miss ya, B-Roy!

    I am in favor of Kassandra's idea ^ and agree with those of you who believe the patch is a bit over the top.  I do feel that retiring Brandon's number is just, given the totality of his contributions to this organization.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
