Happy Tuesday Nova Nation! Yesterday was officially 6 months until Christmas, so you should probably start putting the tree up already. If you have a closet full of jerseys, you may be asking Santa for one of the new ones that will be worn by the former Villanova greats that were just drafted to the NBA. But which one?
Jalen Brunson will be wearing #13, the same number Steve Nash wore during his time with the Mavericks. Donte DiVincenzo and Omari Spellman will both be wearing #9 for the Bucks and Hawks respectively. Mikal Bridges’ new number has yet to be announced, but new teammate Alec Peters already has the #25 jersey the former Wildcat wore as a two time National Champion. Maybe #76 with a line crossed through it? Anyway, our poll question today is which NBA Jersey is on your wish list this year?
