Detroit Pistons To Retire Rip Hamilton’s Number 32?
Chauncey Billups and Ben Wallace, the linchpins to the team's 2004 NBA Championship, have had their numbers 1 and 3 respectively, retired in recent days.
Now it looks like the club is going to retire Richard "Rip" Hamilton's number 32 sometime in the future.
No firm date has been set for his jersey retirement. But Billups said to the media on Wednesday night, "Rip has to be next."
Hamilton was acquired in a trade from the Washington Wizards in September, 2002. And he became one of the key guys in the team's great run in the 2000's.
