Zac Fleming messaged us and said that the organization needed to bring back Gerald Wallace and honor him. His idea was to bring Gerald on for a one day contract and let him retire in Charlotte. He then asked us what would be the best way to get that done? A Petition? We said “you get it started and we will push it.”

Before you start on about saying Gerald Wallace didn’t do enough, take a look at these…

Gerald Wallace’s Placement In Franchise History Stats.
(Keep in mind this includes old Hornets)

#2 Most Points
#3 Most Steals
#3 Games Played
#3 Minutes Played
#3 Most Rebounds
#3 Most Blocks
#4 Most Seasons

That is pretty impressive towering above the modern day squad and hanging in Franchise stat company with long time Hornets like Muggsy Bogues and Dell Curry. Oh and let’s not forget…

 

So if that swayed your opinion in any way check out the petition below and give it a sign…
