Best player to ever wear any given number?

Postby kaz » Thu Jun 09, 2005 1:43 pm

Hey guys, I'm 18 and going to college next year and aspire to be a sportswriter. I'll be attending Virginia Tech, where I'll be swinging my baseball bat for the next four years. As a project this summer, I want to write a book, the idea has probably been done before, but I doubt from the perspective of an eighteen year old. Plus it would be great experience and maybe even get it published and boost my resume :*)

I want to compile a list of the greatest atheletes to ever wear every number from 0-99. I have about 40 done so far and was looking for some insight on the not-so-popular numbers.

Thanks and here's my list so far..

You can take down the other options for 34, its definitely Walter. Also, 21 should probably be Sammy Sosa. Those 70s, you are going to have a tough time filling. Good luck. 80s will probably be all WRs.

jim brown at 32 over magic. brown changed the way rb was played in the nfl period. magic was great but brown meant more to his game.

and to second cubsfan's statement. there is only one 34 and it will always be sweetness.
