    Mr. Hill has chosen 0 as his uniform number. Eli Carter one ups him with the number 1.

    I always like when a player chooses zero. What I want to know is whether or not 0 and 1 will be sharing the court this year in games.

    Sadly (for me), I have been a big basketball fan for years, even played in HS, and I JUST this year realized that only digits 0-5 are allowed on a jersey.

    We're on short supply of refs with ten digits on each hand.

    ??? Is that a UF thing? John Havlicek (Celtics - 17) immediately jumped into my mind.

    Never mind; looks like it's a college thing...

    I didn't realize this either, but your explanation has the "Ring of Truth" to it.

    To be entirely truthful I've just assumed that was the reason for the rule. I was just trying to inject a little humor with my comment. :)

    I had actually heard that explanation many years ago, I think when I was in youth basketball, but had forgotten.

    Look at his fingers
    One, two, three
    How many fingers do I see?
    One, two, three, four, five, six, seven
    Eight, nine, ten, he has eleven!
    Eleven! That is something new
    I wish I had eleven too

    Yes, Wright was 00, but I don't remember any players wearing the single 0.

    Its an NCAA rule. LeBron wears number 6. Jason Collins wore number 98 last season.

    HS rule in most states as well.

    And yes, it's for officials to call fouls into to scorer's table without audio and with minimal confusion.

    I'm a recovering basketball official.

    From a very weak memory, seems like Ronnie Montgomery wore 0. Could be wrong...
