More on Jersey Number Changes
Moe Harkless said his jersey switch was a no-brainer. “I think it was an easy decision, just out of respect for Kobe Bryant and his legacy,” said the new No. 11, the Clippers’ forward formerly known as No. 8. “I just feel like it was the right thing to do for me personally. Obviously, everybody has their own opinion, but for me, it was an easy decision.”
Warriors wing Alec Burks, who began the season wearing No. 8, has switched his jersey number to No. 20, and that change is expected to debut this evening in Boston.
When asked by media why he would no longer be wearing No. 8 for the remainder of the 2019-20 season, Burks thoughtfully stated, “Just out of respect…out of respect for him and his family.” The eight-year NBA veteran continued, “You couldn’t help but notice his game…He’s a great player. Our generation’s (Michael) Jordan, I could see that.”
