dear tony, why do you think new laker chris kaman asked for a single digit number

retired laker jerseys

instead of the number that he has worn his whole career, 35?

Dear Roland,

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,

Lamar Odom

is a far more reasonable goal to shoot for.
