From Nate Robinson's Twitter:
--Yo twitters iam change n my basketball number next year from #4 to #2
--#2 was the very first # I had, and when I was a young boy deion sanders was my fav player and that the # he had!!! Big ups to primeTime
What is this? Deion Sanders doesn't need to be honored on the B-Ball court. It's like when A-Rod came to the Yankees and picked number '13' to honor his favorite quarterback, Dan Marino.
This is why I'm afraid to buy jerseys. Player can change their number whenever they want. That and the massive amount of players changing teams.
Although, one person I know won't screw me over is my boy Danilo Gallinari. He's never getting traded from the Knicks and he'll never change his number. '8' is his number. I think I've built up enough courage to go order a Gallo jersey. You always got my back, Rooster!
By the way, Nate Robinson had the 10th best selling jersey in the league last season. What are the chances he reaches that again?
--On a related note, the NBA Store has a lot of cool Knicks throwbacks. Walt Frazier, Willis Reed, John Starks, Anthony Mason, Patrick (Ch)Ewing, Charles Oakley, Stephon Marbury and Jamal Crawford... wait, what?
