ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — I’ve owned quite a few NBA jerseys through the year. My first purchase was a Dominique Wilkins Hawks replica jersey, purchased with accumulated allowance money when I was a kid in the ATL. My most recent was probably a throwback jersey in the early ’00s, before I got married and had a kid, back when I had some disposable income. At one point I enough of them lining my closet that I needed to clear some room, so started changing out jerseys for button-ups.
Not that there’s anything wrong with NBA jerseys. The jersey you wear not only marks you as an NBA fan, it shows your allegiance to a specific player or even an era. I’ve owned jerseys just because I thought they looked cool, and I’ve owned jerseys because I felt I needed one to properly support my team.
You might own a bunch of NBA jerseys, but I’m guessing Reddit user Macgarnickle has pretty much everyone beat. He posted a photo of his epic collection last night, and if you look closely, there are some real classics in there, from the Damon Stoudamire Raptors jersey to the Larry Johnson Hornets to the Dikembe Mutombo Nuggets. Impressive stuff. Does your collection beat his? Let me know!
