Belinelli picks ZERO as his new #

From his blog, which was translated on Realgm via Google:

Quote:
hi everybody! as you should know, since yesterday i have a new team: not the warriors of san francisco anymore, but the Toronto raptors. I'm excited and very happy to face this new challenge. that's why, just because i've got to start from scratch, moving toward a new land to conquer, a new court to dominate, that's why i've chosen the number zero.Here's what my jersey will look like:




for the moment, my immediate purpose is to get the pass for the upcoming euro basketball tournament. everything is going ok, i've been named mvp of the trentino cup , but i can't wait to start my new adventure alongside my friend andrea bargnani! it's going to be a radical change, a new team, a new conference, new fans; i left (behind the back..) two years in one of the most beatiful city of the world (san francisco).

i wanna thank all the warriors fans, they never skimped on supporting me; i left in san francisco many friends, biedrins, turiaf, the staff who i spent many hours in the gym with, and the many italo-american people who i've become friend with.

in the end, i suggest this video that goes back the best moments as a warrior.

boys, now i greet you, cause i'm going to rest prior to this afternoon training session, thank you for your support, and don't forget to keep following me! enjoy your summer and the deserved vacations.

What a bad choice! jerseys with numbers 0, 00, 1, 99 all look stupid. Numbers 23, 32, 33 are not very creative either.

He linked K-079's youtube video to his website. Maybe he's reading this too.

Question Destiny

I hope the number "0" doesn't haunt him through the upcoming season. I can confidently say TO Raps will be competing for the top 4 seats in the eastern conference if all the players on the roaster show up to play.

Guys...It's a $%^&'in number...Who cares? He's not trying to win a fashion award for "most creative number" or worried about the "ghosts of Zero past, present and future" haunting him. Come on, its not like its going to affect his jumper because the number is, after all, an illustration of the hoop.

wow...what a "creative" interpretation of why he chose his number!

Maybe if he plays defense facing the wrong way, opposing teams will get confused and shoot at his back!

Nice choice, I like players wearing number 0

Not that it matters really what number he chooses, his game will still be the same!

I'm just glad he went with something other than 18.
It's too soon after AP's departure.
