On Yahoo Sports, it says that Carmelo Anthony will be wearing number 7 while Kelena Azabuike will change his number to 17.

It is not clear though what Chauncey Billups number will be

this doesnt sound right

i think this story is false....ive heard that melo requested the #7

but isnt the nba the league that wont let someone change there number during season?? in the nba doesnt azibuke have to wait till next year to give melo that number??

i asked that cause remember when AI got traded to detroit and he offered stuckey to buy his #3 jersey and the NBA wouldnt let him till the following year???

except there was no following year for AI in detorit :laugh:

im not 100% sure someone can look that up tho to see if im right or wrong

Yeah that is true, but Azabuike has not played yet so he can make the change. Here is the link.

he can't keep his current number because the knicks have a retired #15 number so he has no choice but to change his number.

Actually I think Chauncey Billups might wear number 4.

He wore number 4 in college and in high school.

I go to the same high school as Chauncey... GEORGE WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL PATRIOTS!!!!

I thought he might wear #5, but then I remembered that it's currently worn by Bill Walker. Personally, I think #50 would look cool, but that's just me.

Billups will probably wear #4. He wanted it in Detroit but it was retired for Joe Dumars, also to point out that Kenyon Martin wears it in Denver.

I thought they just said he will be wearing 30. oh well who cares. it's a number. if he was really attached to 15 he wouldnt have went to the knicks.

Melo likes him or something? Melo could get Amare's number if he wanted to. Melo 23 Knicks jersey would look pretty good.

I believe you can't change your number in the middle of the season.

NBAkYD
02-22-2011, 08:31 PM
when did the NBA create that rule about no mid-season number changes? I KNOW that when the Sixers got Chris Webber in the mid 2000's Andre Iguodala changed from 4 to 9 midway through the season so Webber (a mid-season acquisition) could wear 4.

LeBron number looked weird when he went from #23 to #6 (but we got use to it)
Carmelo #15 to #7 (we will get use to it)

Yeah, why would he want to get a buyout, knowing that the nuggets are going through a buyout, he is on a potential contending team, and he is on broadway!!!!!!!! He might even decide to sign for a smaller contract in 2012 after they sign cp3 or Derron Williams, he could be a really good back up for the team and possibly help them get a championship. But I think he just stays until 2012 and then either resigns with the Nuggets, the Heat, or retires and becomes a coach or GM

Azubuike hasn't played yet, so I think that's the exception in which a number can be changed.

Yeah, 7 is not that attractive of a number. Plus 30 would imply he is going to be twice as better than when he was 15 while 7 implies he is only going to be around half as good. :D

Lockout needs to be done before this gets out of Control because theirs a lot of collusion in the Nba right now and its plan awful.

When hasn't a team been stacked with stars? From the Bird and Magic days... Jordan years...and so on and so on.. teams have been stacked with stars...

You are going to tell me that Malone and Stockton weren't stars? Pippen, Jordan and Rodman? Magic, Kareem and Worthy? Zeke and Dumars? Drexler and Olajuwan? Monroe and Frazier? Shaq and Penny?

I dont see your point except wishing Carmelo to break his legs in multiple posts..

Good to see Billups rawkin' the #4 again. If I'm not mistaken, the only other time he wore his high school/college number in the league was when he ran with the Wolves a while back. As for Melo wearing #7, we'll all get used to it.
