Sound Off: McLemore jersey number
I saw that Ben McLemore is going to wear jersey number 16 with the Sacramento Kings next season. Will that make McLemore the only player in the NBA wearing that number?
According to www.basketball-reference.com, three players wore No. 16 during the 2012-13 season, with Los Angeles Lakers star Pau Gasol being the most notable. The other two who donned the digits last season were San Antonio center Aron Baynes and New York Knicks forward Steve Novak. McLemore, who wore 23 at Kansas, said recently that he picked the number to honor his mother and her six children.
