I don’t know if it’s a tribute to their college coach and the number of times he’s had to pay for an abortion after an after hours restaurant tryst or not, but it’s possible. Either way, both Brandon Knight and Enes Kanter will wear zero on their jerseys during their inaugural NBA campaign, giving them the coveted one degree of Olden Polynice. The Haitian Sensation wore the number for both teams. Knight and Polynice are also joined Pistons lore with SwiperDad, Orlando Woolridge, who is the only other player to wear the jerseys.
You’re now free to make knockoffs and sell on eBay.
UPDATE: Not so fast! The Pistons announced today that Knight will wear #7 this season. His original choice was #7, but it’s currently worn by Ben Gordon. However, Gordon is flipping to #8, so Knight can have his #7 now. Make sense? Good. Now you’re free to make knockoffs and sell them on eBay.
