There is recent information online about the "possibility" of Jabari Parker wearing the #22 Duke jersey. This jersey has been retired after Jason Williams time at Duke. From reading the message boards I see people who are for and who are against it. Here is how I feel...
I see both sides of the coin on this.
I understand tradition and why people don't want to see Parker wear #22 with Williams jersey being retired.
I also understand that we are running out of numbers and are limited with what we have left. #22 is a VERY popular number in sports.
In the end I'm not gonna get mad either way with what happens. I think it's a good thing to have this problem which means we have so many quality players that have come through Duke and have had their jerseys retired! Other colleges would love to have this problem!
If Duke decides to let Jabari wear the #22 jersey, I would be fine with it. I can't think of a more humble player to get that opportunity. And I'm not gonna lie...if that jersey was released back to Nike again...I would be 1st in line to get the #22 jersey in our current style of jerseys! I mean...after all...athletes love their numbers!
