I submitted this with a Prisoner reference.  Not surprised it was not greenlit.

Jackie/Gretzky level tribute. Sweet.

I'm sure I didn't read that wrong...

If you really want to pay homage retire the number 11 as well.

The #6 is already retired here for the Sixers, or course.

Yeah, no offense to Russell, but the first name that comes to mind when I think of #6 and basketball is Dr. J.

Ben Simmons?

Does that mean Toronto can stop using that idiotic 6ix tagline now?

Michael Jordan is going to make a point of dying soon, just because he took this personally.

Or he'll dig up Russell's corpse and score 60 on it, I can't decide which.

Age and fandom.

I didn't even know what number Dr. J was and I played the hell out of that game "Larry Bird vs Dr. J" or whatever it was called.

Nice, Subby.

It's the right thing to do. He was the league's greatest champion and the ultimate team player, all due respect to Magic, Bird, Dr. J, Curry, LeBron and the owner of the next jersey number to be retired.

And I'm not even a Boston fan.

When I think of the number 6, I think of this song sometimes....

Yep. Dr. J was a big deal when I was a kid.
