I wore 9 my first year, after a friend of mine who was older then me. He told me to wear it, so I did. Then, I switched to 6 for the second half of that season because we had a new guy on the team who was much bigger then I was and needed that number, and 6 was the only one not taken.
Then, in my second and third year, I wore number 7. But once I joined the U19 team last year (I'm 16) I was given 4. I kind of chose it, and it was kind of forced onto me. I always wanted to wear 4 when I was younger, but was never able, but now I don't want it, but I wear it anyway.
Wore 23 for my club side last year the same number I am going to wear this season. Internationally I wore number 8, but that will change once I get my first senior team cap in the next year hopefully and at next years Beijing Paralympics if I am selected. Have also worn 13 and 10 in years past. Ideal Number is 8 the only truly complete and beautiful numerical form.
Have you guys had any great games in these jerseys? Like, really great?
Wearing 22, I had one of the best games in my life, by my standards. It was summer league last year and I hit my first 9 shots. I ended up with 23 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists. Had 6 turnovers though. The degree of difficulty was high as well. I was playing against high schoolers at the time that were tall so about one half of my shots were contested fadeaways.
I usually wear whatever is left, doesn't matter to me what number I wear but it is usually number 13 that is left so that is what I wear. But one time I managed to get my hands on the number 17 jersey and I had 20+/10+ game. In a different game I was lucky to get that number 17 jersey again and I got 8 blocks and over 15 rebounds. When I wear the number 13 jersey I usually average around 4 points and 6-8 rebounds.
Generally I always wore the number corresponding to where I was living at the time. When I was in southwest, it was 5, for LC5, as that was my "set" as a young jackass. When I stayed on 7 Mile, I wore 7. And when I stayed on Joy Road, it was 9, for Exit 9.
I wore #34 in middle school and as a freshman, then #41 as a soph and then I rocked #20 for my two years on Varsity. Since there is a guy with my jersey at the school im going to next year Ill prolly switch to #21 or #24.
