That's wild that there'd be two guys with names that similar and they'd both play for the same team. I mean, I know the older one isn't still there but even so.

 

It could be just a common name like John Smith for all we know

SUNS 3 PICKS.jpg

 

I couldve sworn Bender was getting traded to Sacramento once the approvals came (first week of July, right?). Seems strange that they'd still introduce him as a Sun if he was packing up and leaving within a week. Is that not happening now, or is it still and they just wanted to include him? 

 

EDIT: I suppose on second thought, perhaps in the event the trade doesn't get approved, they'll have already introduced him and wouldn't have to later. Still kinda odd though.

Interesting number choice by Bulls draft pick Denzel Valentine...

And it's not the most popular number choice, either. Some fans aren't too thrilled with Valentine choosing 45.

Bender wasn't part of that trade. It was the 13th and 28th picks.

What about that dude:

Yeah, Luke Schenscher wore 45 in 2006. Rasual Butler also wore it in 2011. Not sure why people are getting mad at Valentine. He's not the first to wear 45 after Jordan, and probably won't be the last.

Ah gotcha, thanks! Just had a little mix up I guess.

 

And re: Valentine, I think it's really absurd if people are getting upset at him taking #45. While 45 represents Jordan's return, yes, its still a rather inconsequential number in comparison to 23 and the legacy behind it. Let the kid try and make his own with 45.

Wondering if Ibaka's going to wear 9 in Orlando, seeing as Vucevic currently has it.

Wow. I'm surprised a rookie could tell team management to bite his "shiny metal ass" and still be on the team. He must be pretty good.

Wikipedia has Ibaka listed as #7. But, Wikipedia's not the most credible source, so I don't think anything's confirmed yet.

How is that interesting? He wore the same number in college.

Jordan cant own both numbers

 

He'll always be associated with both numbers though.  

 

Kobe can't own 8 and 24...yet...

Random question to what is going on here. Lebrons game used high school jersey shows an adidas logo on the chest but their is an on-sports tag...Is this an example similar to ripon and the nfl?
