Lakers retire Shaq's jersey . . . backward
The Lakers retired Shaquille O'Neal's jersey backwards Tuesday night.
We didn't catch it the first time. I noticed something about it looked weird but couldn't put my finger on it, and didn't think anything else of it. But Trey Kerby of The Basketball Jones? He's a real journalist.
Notice anything wrong about Shaquille O’Neal’s banner for his recently retired jersey? Like I don’t know, maybe a notched collar at the top that clearly shows us that this is the front of a Lakers jersey, rather than the back where “O’Neal 34″ is supposed to go? Yep, that’s exactly what is wrong.
So that's awkward.
The Lakers told Yahoo Sports that they're going to fix the jersey, but it might take "a couple of weeks." So that's fun.
But hey, it was that kind of awkward, but fun night at Staples:
