Heat Retiring Tim Hardaway’s Jersey

by September 18, 2009

No Miami Heat player will ever wear Mr. I Got Skillz‘s number again: “The Heat announced Thursday that Hardaway will become the second of its players to have his number retired, with his No. 10 to join Mourning’s No. 33 above the Heat’s home court in a ceremony prior to the team’s Oct. 28 regular-season opener against the visiting New York Knicks. ‘Words can’t describe what I’m feeling right now, just to be acknowledged as one of the best players in Heat history and getting your number retired,’ Hardaway said by phone shortly after the announcement. ‘When they told me, I had a smile on my face like the Joker. This solidifies my career here.”‘
