To the left: Stockton's Jersey.
To the right: Guess.
To help keep it running. Pouring some salt in the soup, you know?
This ain't happening before trade deadline if O'Connor is not playing mind games.
He'd have to pick another number. 12 is retired.
So i heard the only thing holding up this deal is Bledsoe's refusal to change his number. Greg Miller has been on the phone all day trying to get approval from John Stockton to "unretire" #12. Last offer was Miller's Buick dealership and the rights to Pontiac and Oldsmobile, if those nameplates are ever revived. Stockton is reportedly holding out for Miller's Toyota dealership.
12 is incidentally my favorite number.
But if I can't get it - I'd go with 24. It's 12 x 2, so it has a nice meaning (i.e., stepping up to the next level).
24 is also Millsap's number. So it'll be a nice gesture - kinda like Bledsoe telling Millsap - "I'll take it from here bro, don't you worry".
Curious. Where would you put Bledsoe (knowing what he is today) in this year's draft?
Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.
