Ah, what could have been...


Where is Greg Oden now, anyway?

Yeah, seriously.  If 12 years with one team doesn't cement that as his right uniform then I don't know what does.  That's longer than a lot of guys' entire careers.

 

It's not quite the same thing, but it could at least be argued that Roy Halladay's right uniform is a Phillies one, despite having a decade-long terriffic career in Toronto.  He only played two meaningful seasons in Philadelphia, but that's where he had his perfect game and playoff no-hitter, a cy-young, increased national (US at least) exposure in general, and definitely more exposure in the playoffs.  In fact if you google him, the images that show up are Phillies rather than Blue Jays.

 

I'm just saying that I feel that way, just pointing out that there are circumstances where 12 years with a team doesn't make it a slam dunk that that's their "right" uniform.

Here's Iguodala in the wrong uniform and wrong number (he gave #4 to Chris Webber when Webber decided to come here and steal an absurd amount of money.)

 

Iguodala played 8 years in Philadelphia, vs 4 total between Denver and GSW, but I don't think anyone would consider a Sixers uniform to be his "right" one.

I think that players can certainly have more than one "right" uniform. When I think of Roy Halladay, I think of both Toronto and Philadelphia. Likewise, with Igoudala I think of both Philly and Golden State. Denver, however, would be a wrong uniform in my mind

To be honest, I still do. I think a Warriors uniform will eventually look a little more right on him to me the longer he's there, but for now I still think of him as a 76er first, a Warrior close second, and a Nugget distant last.

I would disagree - I still think of him as a 76er as much as anything - but just wanted to say that's a pretty good jersey. A little too shiny, perhaps, but the Sixers should have used more color in that set. I know they didn't have a red alt in that style but I'd like to see one.

I agree for a few years he was basically called the new AI after iversons got traded.

Right. I remember when he and Iverson were teammates that Philly had two AIs. That's where I first heard of him.

Possibly unpopular opinion:

 

This uniform is better than what they currently wear.

Making it worse is the fact that he's wearing the ancestor of today's "blood clot" uniforms in the top photo.

As for the iguodala pic, nothing wrong with giving up  a number for a vet, but sucks when they are soon to retire, i remember Josh Smith had 42 before Kevin Willis returned to the  Hawks.
