Agreed. I wrote a writer of the Detroit Free Press about it. Predictably, he had no idea either.

The league is racist against Asian players.

Anyway, Isiah probably bribed the league so that he could have that stupid looking jersey. He was trying too hard to be different and special, but in the end he still didn't make it to the Dream Team. LOL.

Elvin Hayes used to wear a jersey with nothing but the letter E on it

Damn!

First names... nicknames... all look good on jerseys than "Jones" or "Smith"

Also, I'm guessing there weren't a ton of game jerseys being produced back then, so maybe he started with Isiah and had to stick with it all year.
