They also made a 30-for-30 about Michael Jordan on the White Sox -- Must be the right uniform!

Michael Jordan never played for the White Sox

Are we seriously debating if Shaq in a Magic's uniform is wrong? It's where he made his name! There's no debate.

I don't really count that because it was just a marketing scheme by the Sox to gain as much money as possible

Regardless of motive, he did play in the Sox organization.

Regardless, Jordan playing baseball got a 30 for 30 because it was weird. The early Orlando Magic got their 30 for 30 because they were a huge friggin' deal at the time. We haven't even brought up Little Penny!

Cujo, make like a Chicagoan and take the L, you're utterly out of your gourd calling Shaq with the Magic an aberration.

Shaq's Magic beat Jordan's Bulls. It really happened, even if we all pretend it didn't.

And Jordan scored 49 points while wearing the number 12 in that game.

I'm assuming that was spring training? He never played a regular-season or postseason MLB game. Most of his professional baseball career took place with the Birmingham Barons.

Tony Meola never played for the Jets in the regular season.  But this still counts.

Anyway, this thread jumped the shark long ago, as the recent mention of Shaq in Orlando conclusively proves.  I should flog myself for continuing to contribute to it!

 

The standard should be Namath with the Rams or Killebrew with the Royals -- teams that no one would associate with the player without the pictorial reminder.  There are only a handful of such cases.

 

And, by that standard, Meola would qualify, but Jordan would not, because everybody remembers Jordan in a Sox uniform that spring, especially his hit against the Cubs at Wrigley.

Yes. MJ left the 3-peat Bulls for the absolute sole purpose of helping the White Sox make a crapload of money....

Haha, well, thanks. My knowledge of individual soccer players is limited to the mononymous guys, plus Rooney, Beckham, Messi, and a handful of present and former U.S. national team members (both men and women), so thanks for teaching me.

If Shaq in Orlando is wrong, then I don't want to be right.

 

(I admittedly have watched very, very little of the NBA in the past ~15 years, but I still think of Shaq and Penny Hardaway when I hear of the Magic. It's a shame that they ran into literally the greatest team of all time in 1996, because that team was incredibly stacked and really fun to watch.)
