Players in the "wrong" uniforms


Recommended Posts

In response to the question of players who did a photo shoot with their new team, but never played a game with them, here's my submission from 5 years ago:

Here's one that most people don't remember...

Portland picked up Moses Malone in the ABA dispersal draft, and traded him away before the '76-'77 season started. Just about as bad as picking Bowie over Jordan, IMHO. Enough ranting, here's a pic...

Picture is for bid on eBay.

He did play in the preseason for Portland - in fact, he played so well Jack Ramsey wanted to keep him, but by that point the Blazers had already agreed to trade him to Buffalo. Here's Moses from one of the 2 games he played for the Braves:

Kenny Lofton

He was actually traded to Atlanta before the '97 season for Grissom and Justice haha.

A lot of people forget, because he ended up in Cleveland for the 1998 season via free agency.

I thought that was a mid-season trade
