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:

The letters on the nameplate are spaced too far apart. Seeing higher numbers in a Devils uniform is weird, too. Wonder if Ryder gets to keep 73.

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.

Picture was taken on Dec 3rd, 1974... oddly enough these uniforms never featured the "Warriors" mark under the circle... anyone has any explanation for this addition to this games jersey's?
