The Thunder announced on Saturday that they will be retiring Collison's jersey in a ceremony on March 20, anything a fan might want, including two overtime hours, 301 combined points, a 50-point individual effort, and a 20-minute 20-triple-double.
"I'm thrilled that Nick Collison is the first Thunder player to have his number retire in Oklahoma City," said Thunder chairman Clayton I. Bennett. "He has established himself as part of the structure of this community and our organization, setting an example of dedication, hard work and authenticity." Congratulations, Nick. "
