Strugglin trying to figure out what jersey number to wear #0-100
— JARRETT JACK (@Jarrettjack03) July 25, 2014
Jack has worn #1 throughout most of his career, wearing #2 for one season with the New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans) and one season with the Golden State Warriors. #1’s been taken by Mason Plumlee, and #2 belongs to Kevin Garnett, so chances are he’ll have to come up with a new number.
Though Garnett will probably stick with #2, he could decide to buy #1 from Plumlee. Players buying jersey numbers isn’t uncommon. Here’s a piece from Lee Jenkins in 2005 on that subject. The going price tends to be $20,000-$40,000 in cash or goods.
But if Jack, who’s making $6.3 million this season, wants to save the cash, he’ll have to go somewhere new. He wore #3 at Georgie Tech, but that’s been retired for Nets great Drazen Petrovic.
What number do you think Jack should wear?
