What is your favorite number? How many players do you know who wear your lucky number in the NBA? Can you create a team of players who wear your number?

Follow me. How many points do you want to score? 0. Zero? Of course not. How many rebounds do you want to have? 0. Zero? Of course not. How many wins do you want to have? 0. Zero? Of course not, c’mon!

But, why do you want to wear the No. 0? How many players do you know who have worn the No. 0? Do you know Gilbert Arenas? Yeah, of course you do, Agent Zero.

Arenas wore No. 0 when he joined the NBA, but the number dates back to his time at the University of Arizona, where he was told zero was the number of minutes he was going to be able to play that year.
