The Timberwolves officially introduced their two new draft picks to the media last Friday and Shabazz Muhammad didn't waste any time establishing his um, knowledge of the game.
Muhammad will don the only number lonelier than one. He'll wear zero.
"I asked for 15 but my second option was 0," said Muhammad. "Nobody wears zero in the league so I thought I might as well wear 0."
His first choice, 15 is currently occupied by Mickael Gelabale so since no one else wears zero, he went there. The bigger problem is that 15 NBA players wore the digit. Including a couple of pretty good ones.
Zero: More than a number
Russell Westbrook- Oklahoma City
Damian Lillard- Portland
Jeff Teague- Atlanta
Andray Blatche- Brooklyn
Shawn Marion- Dallas
Michael Beasley- Phoenix
Al-Farouq Amino- New Orleans
Avery Bradley- Boston
C.J. Miles- Cleveland
Enes Kanter- Utah
Bismack Biyombo- Charlotte
Drew Gooden- Milwaukee
Aaron Brooks- Houston
Andrew Goudelock- Los Angeles Lakers
It's good to know the young rookie will be in rare air wearing the big 0.
