Best NBA Players by Jersey Number

Here are the best NBA players to wear jersey numbers 00-99, although some numbers have never been worn in the NBA. Our one stipulation was that obviously worthy players not be shoehorned into this list if they wore a particular number only briefly. Thus, no Michael Jordan at 45, the number he wore for 17 games after returning from his first retirement during the 1994–95 season, before switching back to his familiar 23.
