Time for another Jersey War. In honor of the next generation of NBA HOF players now taking the center stage, I went with Derrick Rose’s #1. Could I have picked Durant, LeBron, or Wade as inspiration? Sure. But who is to say we won’t see another number featured soon?
#1 is an interesting number, shied away from in many sports. But it has been worn by some of the greatest goalies/goalkeepers in history, and by the only man to be enshrined in two professional football HOF’s (scoff if you will, but his numbers were ridiculous). Throw in one of my favorite baseball players ever, and one of the NBA’s immortals…….and maybe we’re having a conversation. It is Round Two of The Jersey Wars, the battle for the greatest #1 ever. You know the drill……..have at it, Nexters.
