Admittedly dumb question


Recommended Posts

I can't recall fully but what I think happened was Detroit originally gave Rasheed Wallace 30 without asking because they thought it would be the number he picked. When the team started this year he wanted to go with his original choice, 36, he could go with because everyone was issued new jersies.

I think it was something to honor his brother or something like that.

Rasheed's brother committed suicide. He was 36 years old. When Rasheed was traded to Atlanta by Portland he switched to No. 36 in honor of his brother.

Correct. And FWIW, he couldn't wear #36 in Portland, as it's a retired number.
