As CBS Los Angeles reports, Baron Davis is no longer number 1. He will wear number 5 for the 2010-11 NBA season.
“Baron Davis is no longer #1, on his jersey. The veteran PG will sport the #5 this season as the Clippers unveil their new uniforms for the upcoming season.”
Davis wore jersey number 1 on the Charlotte/New Orleans Hornets from 2000-2005. He was traded to the Golden State Warriors in February 2005 and wore jersey number 5 as a Warrior from 2005-2008. When he signed as a free agent with the Clippers in July of 2008 he switched back to his original number 1. And now he is making the switch back to number 5.
Sorry to all Baron Davis fans that recently purchased his jersey with number 1 on it.
