Players in the "wrong" uniforms


Recommended Posts

So if the L.A. beats Detroit in '04, you would associate Karl Malone with the Lakers more than you would the Jazz?

Heck no! To me, this is one of the weirdest photos to look at in the World of Sports....

Its odd isn't it. I brought up KG earlier as a Celtic. But I think there is a difference. I think Malone winning a championship with LA would have been more akin to Ray Bourque winning a cup with the Avalanche, than KG in Boston. I think that Malone went to LA to win a championship, rather than to lead a team to the championship, which is more akin to what KG did. And KG has immersed himself in the Celtics now. You always had the feeling Malone was just flying in to LA

I totally agree. LA ended up being a hiccup in his career. Although, there's a chance they might have pulled it together if he hadn't been injured in the Finals. All we can really do is speculate, but at least he retired as a Jazzman, whether it was a 1 day contract or not. :P

Can we please just go ahead and change the name of this thread already?

(Or, at the very least, split it into "legends" and "favoritest players from favoritest teams" or something like that...)

I wish more goalies did this with their pads (flipped the colours). I remember Martin Brodeur used to have one red and one black pad, and Martin Biron did it in 2005-06 with the Sabres.

Speaking of Brett Hull....

Did here ever wear #9 in his very short Phoenix stint?

Yep. He wore #16 for the first two games of the 2005-06 season and then at the Coyotes' home opener, Bobby Hull unretired #9. Brett wore it for the next three games before retiring.

Might not be a legend but it sure doesn't look right...

I have no idea who that is.

Pat Burrell. The only thing he's legendary at is striking out and banging every cougar in the Deleware Valley. I've heard some very interesting stories from a girl I met that used to hook up with him.

I was with Buc in renaming the thread, but after I saw this? F*** it. Just shut the whole damn thing down. The is the "Legends in the wrong uniforms" thread...and this motherf***er posts Mark "I didn't know he was still in NBA" Madsen.

This s*** didn't just jump the shark, it jumped all the sharks...San Jose Sharks, Iron Chef Shark, Jets and Sharks, the Jersey Shore Shark attacks of 1916, and even those 3 mechanical sharks from the "Jaws" flicks.

If you're in your thirties when you bang 'em, are they still cougars anymore?

Not that I won't stop trying, mind you...

I was going to guess Dean Cain...

On another note, I think we need to retitle this thread "Mildy successful (or maybe not) players in uniforms we are not accustomed to seeing them in"
