Weird, does someone on the pistons wear #3?

Edit: I looked it up, and Rodney Stuckey wears #3...

Edit again: I wonder what # billups will wear since J.R. Smith wears #1.

Agreed. I never like it when a player that's played so long with a certain number changes it

Stuckey wont give up #3Stuckey actually was willing to give it up but you can't change numbers during the year.

Is that why Rasheed wore a different number when he first joined the Pistons?

Iverson will wear Billups old #

Damn, the credit crunch really is serious, they're even reusing Billups's old jerseys.

Yeah I agree.

The Wizards gave Ben Wallace all of Rasheed's old stuff when he joined the Wizards.

That's pretty cool, but its obviously photoshopped. Arms look weird, and the 3 just looks superimposed.

Yeah you can. When Andre Iguodala was a rookie, he wore #4 then when Philadelphia traded for Chris Webber he came in and wore #4 then Iguodala changed to #9

Someone should beat Stuckeys head until he got some common sense.

he is denying a HOffer his number!!!!.


Come on Magic Johnson , a top 3 player of all time humbly offered to temporarily unretire 32 from lakers Rafters to allow Karl Malone to wear it.

Who the hell is Stuckey?.


I also think Brandon Bass should have allowed Kidd to wear 32 or Howard allow him number 5.

Welly Iggy gave up the Number 4 for Chris Webber when he came to Philly.
Kobe changed from 8 and 24 and It doesn't even surprise me seeing him as 24 now since it's been a while.
Iverson with the Number 1 isn't as bad as a number like 39 or something like that.

Yeah Only numbers worth using : 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,20,21,22, 23,24,25,30,31,32,33,34,35,40,41,42,43,44,45,50,51 ,52,53,54,55,69,76(for Phily only),77,99,00.

Everything else is ********.

Yeah you can. When Andre Iguodala was a rookie, he wore #4 then when Philadelphia traded for Chris Webber he came in and wore #4 then Iguodala changed to #9I thought so too but the NBA said no.

From DetNews.com (http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20081104/SPORTS0102/811040423/1127/rss13)

The All-Star guard, acquired in a trade with Denver on Monday, had wanted to wear his usual No. 3, which is currently being worn by second-year guard Rodney Stuckey.

Stuckey indicated he would be willing to give up the number, but the NBA ruled Tuesday that a change in numbers can't take place until after the season.

that settles the matter. it wasn't Stuckey's fault.
