As a basketball player nothing is more exciting than the day uniforms are given out because this usually means the first game is around the corner. Due to the fact that I am very small my options of numbers have always been very limited. The smaller numbers are usually the smaller jerseys and so my options were literally 0-9 , lol. Even though that plays a part in why I wear the number’s I do it is not the only reason and so for this blog I thought I’ll explain why I wear the number’s I do.
#3- This is my first option when it comes to me picking a jersey number. I was born in the third month of the year[March], on the third day . I have three siblings and I am the third child even though I get treated like the baby ☺️
to Ireland this year I would be informed that my club didn't have the number 3. The smallest number they started from was 4. At first I was going to wear 4 because it was the number I wore my first two years of college because they didn't have the number 3 jersey either but I decided to dedicate this playing season to my grandmother. On August 23,2017 I would arrive here in Ireland and on August 23,2017 I would get a call that my grandmother had passed😞 She was 96 years old 🙏🏽👼🏽
#5 – In 2011, unfortunately one of my very best friends would lose her brother in a car accident. He was only 21 years old. He wore the number 5 when he played basketball and so in remembrance of him I wear #5 if 3 isn’t a option.#Q5👼🏽
My grandmother never got to see me play basketball while she was here on earth so I hope she up there in heaven smiling ☺️❣️ I have achieved success and failed numerous times but when I look down at that number I know why I am playing is bigger then me 🙏🏽
Why do you wear the number you do ?
