instead of the number that he has worn his whole career, 35?
According to Funky Cold, the former Clipper “deadpanned his newly adorned No. 9 jersey had ‘zero significance’ other than wanting a single-digit number.”
But I have a feeling that if I was going to join a team who have numbers 32, 33, and 34 hanging from the rafters
Magic, Kareem and Shaq
i’d be a little intimidated to put on 35.
especially since all three of them are still quite vocal in Lakerland.
indeed taking the number of another former Clipper turned Laker,
is a far more reasonable goal to shoot for.
