Everyone likes to choose the number they will wear during the season. But why is a certain number so important to you? Everyone has their own story, so whats yours?
During the season I wear the number 13. My story is not very great, but back when i started playing basketball, which was like 3rd or 4th grade we got to choose our numbers so I chose 13 because 13 age wise meant you were a teenager, and i just couldnt wait to be a teenager. Stupid I know, but i was a little kid. Anyways, Every year, I wanted to be the same number, and then sooner or later it just became the number i HAD to have if i was going to play.lol.
Actually during the summer league that just past i wore number 21 for a change, and i probably played the worst ball in my life for the entire summer league. No Joke. I'm ussually a threat when Im on the court, but something about wearing a new number screwed me up. I couldnt shoot worth crap, i had probably around 10 turnovers during the entire summer season. (Thats alot for me)..finally i just stuck to passing.
One thing is for sure, I am going back to 13 for the upcomming season..
I'm number 6, nothing special. It's kinda funny becuase afterwards I realised that it's the same number Lebron was wearing @the Olympics, and that I had the same initials ^^ even though Im a kobe fan xD
13. No real reason. In the UK, team numbers only go from 4 to 15. The size of the jersey goes up with the number. Since I was the second biggest guy on the team, I took 13. I didn't want 14, because it just doesn't look right.
7 has always been my lucky/favorite number. I remember being #3 as a kid in baseball because I loved Dale Murphy, and #17 in soccer because #7 has a connotation in that sport that I can't live up to, and #42 a couple times because I couldn't choose a number (but 42 was actually my dad's number in college). Otherwise I'm always 7. So is my man Lamar Odom and that's bad ass.
