Our long and arduous work in progress of ranking the top fifty players for every North American sports team is underway, but after that is completed we will then take a look how each franchise honors their own in terms of respective franchise halls of fame, ring of honors, retired numbers and statues.
As such, it is important to us to make notice that the Detroit Pistons retired the number 3 of Ben Wallace last night in a ceremony during halftime of their home game against the Golden State Warriors.
Wallace was a four time NBA Defensive Player of the Year who was a member of the 2004 NBA Championship Team. As a Piston, “Big Ben” was a four time All Star averaging 6.6 Points and 11.1 Rebounds per Game with a 16.5 PER.
The retirement of Wallace’s number marks the eighth time that the Detroit Pistons have retired a number. Wallace is eligible for the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2017.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate Ben Wallace for receiving this prestigious honor.
