Players on the wrong team, but the right uniform

Recommended Posts

Probably because my age as well but Rangers and Kings look right to me for Gretzky. Blues the outlier, but recognize the Oilers as a big part, but not usually my first thought

Alonzo Mourning on the New Jersey Nets.

It was weird seeing him not in a Heat or Hornets jersey, but the look was just right.

I think Gretzky looks best with the Rangers

Since I really came into my hockey fandom during his tenure with the Rangers, I always associate Gretzky with them first. Plus, I used to play this game all the time.

Another hockey one, Peter Forsberg as a Flyer.

If the thread is “player on the wrong team but in a better looking uniform”, then I’ll say Bryce Harper with the Phillies:

Well, with a 13 year contract, it's eventually going to be the right team

Well if we're gonna use scenarios that never existed, then everybody photoshopped to be in any uniform is fair game. Kobe never actually suited up for the Hornets, only drafted and traded to the Lakers.

I feel the same way about Dikembe Mutombo's season in New Jersey.

When Rob Beck, a closer for the Giants in the early 90s, was with the Cubs for a season. It looked like the right uniform for him. But it can also be said for some Giants who sign with the Cubs also like Dusty Baker. 

Image result for rob beck

That’s now his uniform for eternity. 

 

That was the picture they used on the program at Rod Beck's funeral Thursday, the day they buried him in full Cubs uniform.

Thinking a little bit more about this topic, and I think Nolan Ryan with the Rangers is a pretty prime example. He played longer with the Angels and Astros, but his 5,000th strikeout, 300th win, last no hitters, the Robin Ventura fight, and his HOF plaque all make the Rangers a very strong association in my mind, and I’m sure many others. Plus there’s the whole “Texan Legend” thing and from a purely aesthetic standpoint, that Rangers look fit him very well. I mean, the guy looked like a Texas Ranger. As far any possible criteria for the topic, it seems to check off just about all the boxes.

I'll always think of him as that bearded guy on the Red Sox.
