I've seen comments about Gilbert potentially retiring Dirk Nowitzki's number, and want to pose the question to Cavs fans (I am a Dallas fan). I know the concept seems a little ridiculous, but consider the following:
- Lebron would have a reminder of his greatest failure in the rafters of two opposing stadiums.
- Why not celebrate Lebron's failures a little more?
- Miami is the only team to retire a number of an opposing player (Jordan) to this point. In a way, this factor could be an extra thumb of the nose in the Heat's direction.

I'm not arguing this absolutely must happen, I just wanted to make some points and ask for your thoughts.
Also, how do you expect the Cleveland crowd to greet the Mavs next time they visit (hopefully will happen this coming season)?
