Countdown with Legends: 5 Days Until Tip-off

This post is part of our NBA week series, where we explore all things NBA leading up to opening night on October 31st.


As we closer to the start of the NBA season, I thought it might be fun to look at great players who wore the same number as the number of days left until tip-off.  We are 6 days out so we are going to look at highlights of greats who wore number 6 in no particular order. Enjoy the highlights!


Kevin Garnett, Career averages: 19.9ppg, 10.6rpg,  4.0apg


Jason Kidd, Career averages: 13.0ppg,  6.4rpg, 9.0 apg


Baron Davis, Career averages: 16.1ppg, 3.8rpg, 7.2apg

    Dick Van Arsdale is the only player to have the #5 retired (Phoenix). He played in one of Phoenix’s TWO triple OT NBA Finals games. Why do I know these things?
