Predicting Next Retired #s In NBA*

*active players only

(Remember, Bobcats/Hornets, Clippers, Grizzlies, & Raptors don't have any retired numbers... yet.)

Locks to have their jerseys retired:

#34 Pierce (BOS)
#23 James (CLE)
#41 Nowitzki (DAL)
#1 Billups (DET)
#24 Bryant (LAL)
#6 James (MIA)
#3 Wade (MIA)
#21 Garnett (MIN)
#35 Durant (OKC)
#13 Nash (PHX)
#9 Parker (SAS)
#20 Ginobili (SAS)
#21 Duncan (SAS)

Players with a strong possibility of having numbers retired (I think):

#20 R-Allen (BOS)
#1 Rose (CHI)
#13 Nash (DAL)
#31 Terry (DAL)
#15 Anthony (DEN)
#1 Bosh (MIA)

Other worthy/semi-worthy candidates who MAY get their jerseys retired by a particular team... one day:
