Best Dallas Cowboy To Wear Number 34

Number 34 was worn for the Dallas Cowboys by Herschel Walker, beginning in 1986. After an astounding collegiate career at Georgia, where he won the Heisman Trophy, Walker played for the upstart USFL. Walker remained wearing red as he suited up for the New Jersey Generals between 1983 and 1985.

The Cowboys took a flyer on Walker, hoping he would leave the USFL for the NFL. Dallas drafted Walker with the number 114 pick in the 1985 NFL draft. Walker would join the Cowboys in 1986, splitting the backfield with number 33.

In that first season with Dallas, Walker ripped off the longest run in the league for the season, with an 84-yard scamper.

Not only was Herschel a force running the ball, averaging 4.9 yards-per-carry with 12 touchdowns, but he was also an asset in catching the ball out of the backfield for Dallas. Walker caught a hefty 76 passes for 837 yards and two touchdowns in his first season as a Cowboy.

1987 would be a Pro Bowl season for Walker with Dallas. He had the best number of yards from scrimmage in the league with 1,606. In just twelve games for Dallas, he ran for 891 yards and caught 60 passes for 715 yards.

From a numbers perspective, 1988 would be Walker's best year with Dallas. Playing and starting in a full 16 game season, Herschel ran for an impressive 1,514 yards, while catching the ball 53 times for 505 yards. His total number of yards from scrimmage was 2,019.

With Walker dominating out of the backfield, and after playing in a small number of games for Dallas in the 1989 NFL season, the Cowboys traded Herschel to the Minnesota Vikings in what was a blockbuster deal.

The trade was huge for Dallas, as they received five players, six draft picks and potential draft picks based on whether one of the five players they got in the trade were cut. Some of the picks that wound up coming to the Cowboys would be used to select Emmitt Smith, Russell Maryland, Kevin Smith and Darren Woodson.

After playing for Minnesota, the Philadelphia Eagles and the New York Giants, Walker would return to the Dallas Cowboys and once again wear his trademark number 34. Walker primarily returned kicks for Dallas in 1996 and 1997. He wound up his career in the NFL, with the Cowboys, returning 50 kicks for 1,167 yards.

Best Dallas Cowboy To Wear Number 33

Not only is this guy the best Dallas Cowboy to wear the number 33, he's also the best NFL athlete to wear the number 33. And some would also say he's the best professional athlete to wear the number 33.

Tony Dorsett was a phenomenal running back in college at the University of Pittsburgh. While with the Panthers, Dorsett earned the Heisman Trophy and helped rush his team into the National Championship.

In 1977, the Dallas Cowboys made Dorsett the number two overall draft pick, after trading up to get him. In his rookie season with Dallas, number 33 ran for 1,007 yards and 12 TDs. Although he wasn't named the starter until the tenth game of the season, he still put up those impressive numbers in his first season. That performance earned him the AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award.

Interestingly, the 12 touchdowns that Dorsett ran for in his rookie season, would be the most in any single season during his Hall of Fame career with Dallas.

In the postseason, number 33 would excel as Dallas moved through the playoffs en route to the Super Bowl Championship. During that run of three games, Dorsett carried the ball for 222 yards and 4 touchdowns.

For his sophomore campaign with Dallas, Dorsett increased his rushing yards to 1,325. Dorsett was now a bona fide star running back in the NFL. As such, he was recognized with a Pro Bowl selection.

Although number 33 might have had his best overall season as a Cowboy in 1977, his rookie campaign, he certainly continued to produce for Dallas over his 11-year career with the team. Here are some of his career numbers:

  • 8 seasons with more than 1,000 yards rushing
  • 2,755 regular season rushing yards for Dallas
  • 77 regular season rushing touchdowns for Dallas
  • Longest rush from scrimmage (99 yards) in 1982
  • 3,432 regular season receiving yards for Dallas
  • 13 regular season receiving touchdowns for Dallas 
  • 4-time Pro Bowl selection
  • 16,293 total rushing yards from scrimmage
Dorsett is also a member of both the Pro and College Football Halls of Fame. 

Did you know.........that Dorsett's number 33 has been retired by the Pitt Panthers?

Best Dallas Cowboy To Wear Number 32

Walt Garrison wore number 32 for his entire Dallas Cowboy career, spanning the 1966 to 1974 NFL seasons. Garrison was selected by the Dallas Cowboys with the number 79 overall draft pick in 1966, as well as by the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFL draft with the 151st overall pick. He obviously chose to play with the Cowboys.

Number 32 for Dallas was a tough, blocking fullback. When Don Perkins retired in 1969, Garrison got his chance to carry the ball for the Cowboys. During that 1969 regular season, Perkins had 176 rushing attempts for 818 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Over his nine-year NFL career, all spent with the Dallas Cowboys while wearing jersey number 32, Garrison put up the following numbers:

  • 3,886 Rushing yards
  • 30 Rushing touchdowns
  • 1,794 Receiving yards

Best Dallas Cowboy To Wear Number 31

Number 31 was worn by Roy Williams for the Dallas Cowboys between the 2002 and 2007 NFL seasons. Interestingly, Williams played for the Cowboys in 2008, but switched his jersey number to 2008 for that season.

Selected with the number 8 overall draft pick in 2002 by the Dallas Cowboys out of the University of Oklahoma, Williams would establish himself immediately as a fierce defender for Dallas. In his rookie campaign as a Cowboy, Williams started all 16 games for Dallas at the safety position. He picked off five passes, returning them for 90 yards. Two of those interceptions were returned for touchdowns. Number 31 also had his highest solo tackle number for Dallas in his first season, recording 88.

Williams talent was recognized the following season as number 31 was named to the Pro Bowl as well as a first-team All-Pro. Prior to his third season with Dallas, Williams suffered a herniated disc in training camp. He was still able to get on the field for all 16 regular season games for Dallas. Williams recorded 94 total tackles and was once again named to the Pro Bowl.

For five consecutive seasons as a Cowboy, Williams was selected for the Pro Bowl. The only two seasons he didn't receive the honor was as a rookie and in 2008, his final year with Dallas. Over seven seasons with Dallas, number 31 put up the following numbers:

  • 19 Interceptions
  • 56 Passes-defended
  • 506 Total tackles
  • 5-time Pro-Bowl selection
Did you know.........that Williams won the Bronko Nagurski Trophy as the best defensive player in college football for 2001?

Best Dallas Cowboy to Wear Number 30

Wearing number 30 for the Dallas Cowboys between the years of 1965 and 1972, Dan Reeves lined up in the offensive backfield as a running back. Interestingly, while at the University of South Carolina, before becoming a Dallas Cowboy, Reeves played quarterback.

The best Dallas Cowboy to wear number 30 started in 4 of the 13 games he appeared in as a rookie with Dallas. He averaged 3.1 yards per attempt and found the end zone two times for the Cowboys.

Starting in all 14 games for Dallas the next season, Reeves numbers went up considerably. He toted the ball 175 times for 757 yards and 8 touchdowns. His average yards per attempt rushing was 4.3. Additionally, number 30 caught the ball 41 times for 557 yards with 8 TDs.

In the 1967 season, Reeves set a Dallas Cowboy record, scoring four touchdowns in a game against the Atlanta Falcons. The following season, Reeves suffered a knee injury and went out for the season after week 4. He was having a fairly strong season, numbers-wise, that year. Number 30 put up 4.5 yards per attempt and had 4 touchdowns before suffering his injury.

The knee injury would hamper the remainder of Reeves playing career. Continuing to wear number 30 for Dallas, he was able to play four more seasons, wrapping up his playing days in 1972.

Did you know...........that Reeves was twice named the AP NFL Coach of the Year?

Best Dallas Cowboy to Wear Number 29

He wore number 29 for only a short period of time with the Dallas Cowboys. But what a period of time it was. Between 2011 and 2014, DeMarco Murray had a fine stretch of football, suiting up in the Cowboys' offensive backfield.

Murray started seven games as a rookie with the Cowboys, getting into 13 total. The former third-round draft pick out of Oklahoma ran for 897 yards and two touchdowns in his first NFL season. He also tore of a 91 yard scamper to lead the NFL with the longest run of the season.

In his sophomore campaign, Murray was having a good season in the backfield before spraining his foot in a week six contest against the Baltimore Ravens. He would re-join the team in week 13 however, and get back into form. For the shortened season, at least for Murray, he ran for 663 yards on 161 carries with four touchdowns.

His number three season with the Cowboys would be his "welcome to the NFL spotlight" season. In 2013, although Murray missed two games in the middle of the season due to a sprained MCL, he would have a breakout performance. Starting in all 14 games for which he appeared, Murray carried the ball 217 times for 1,121 yards and 9 touchdowns.

2014 would be a record year for Murray, one that really put his name on the national map. In his first year starting in all 16 games at the NFL level, Murray led the league in both carries, with 392, and yards from scrimmage with 1,845. He also set the pace with 13 touchdowns and 115.3 yards per game.

Murray, even though he broke his hand at the end of the season, was able to stay on the field and set some Dallas Cowboy records. His 1,845 yards during the 2014 season set the mark for a Cowboys single-season. Number 22 for the Cowboys, Emmitt Smith, previously held that record with 1,773 yards. 

Following the 2014 season, with salary cap constraints hampering what the Cowboys would be able to offer to both Murray and Dez Bryant, Murray signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Best Dallas Cowboy to Wear Number 28

Selected in the second round of the 1992 NFL Draft out of Arizona State, Darren Woodson would wear number 28 for the Dallas Cowboys for a number of years. Although he didn't start the majority of games as a rookie, Woodson still made an impact on the field. He recorded 33 tackles and a sack playing defensive back.

Primarily a strong safety, Woodson had a phenomenal sophomore season with Dallas. He established himself as one of the best tacklers in the NFL. During the 1993 regular season, Woodson notched 155 tackles and three fumble recoveries. En route to the Cowboys' second Super Bowl Championship in as many seasons, Woodson picked off a pass and recovered a fumble. Number 28 was well on his way to becoming one of the best defenders in the league.

During his time with Dallas, Woodson was also one of the most feared hitters in the NFL. Playing the game with ferocity, hits from number 28 became a highlight reel of professional football collisions.

Woodson played his entire NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys. He was certainly proud to have done so.

In 178 regular season games with the Cowboys, Woodson recorded 813 tackles with 138 assists. He also had an even 11 sacks and 11 fumble recoveries.  He was a five-time Pro Bowl selection, three-time Super Bowl Champion and was inducted into the Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor.

Best Dallas Cowboy to Wear Number 26

Selected in the first round of the 1992 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys out of Texas A&M, Kevin Smith wore number 26 while becoming a starter during his rookie season. That season he picked off two passes, forced a fumble and made 31 tackles. Following that regular season, Smith played cornerback for the Cowboys en route to the Super Bowl Championship.

In his second season with the Cowboys, Smith became a full-time starter at cornerback. His numbers went up across the board. He picked off six passes and returned one for a touchdown. He forced three fumbles and recovered one. Tackles went from 31 with previous season to a hefty 90. Smith once again contributed to the Cowboys' Super Bowl Championship following the regular season.

Battling back through a torn achilles tendon, Smith would have a relatively long career with the Dallas Cowboys. In all, Smith played eight seasons for Dallas and put up the following numbers:

  • 19 regular season interceptions
  • 334 regular season tackles
  • 3 Super Bowl Championships

Best Dallas Cowboy to Wear Number 25

Number 25 isn't as popular as you might think, amongst the Dallas Cowboys. Come to think of it, the number isn't that popular in the NFL in general. Reggie Bush is a player who has worn 25 who comes to mind. All-time in the NFL, the best to wear number 25 is Fred Biletnikoff.

When it comes to the Dallas Cowboys, the best to wear number 25 all-time is Aaron Kyle. Selected 25th overall by the Cowboys in the 1976 NFL Draft, Kyle recorded a safety for Dallas as a rookie, playing defensive back.

In his sophomore campaign with the Cowboys, Kyle started in ten games, picking off a pass. In the playoffs following that season, he picked off a pass and recovered a fumble, en route to Dallas winning Super Bowl XII.

Playing four seasons for the Cowboys, Kyle had six interceptions and two fumble recoveries in the regular season, to go with two INTs and a fumble recovery in the playoffs.

Best Dallas Cowboy to Wear Number 24

The best Dallas Cowboy to ever wear the number 24 is also probably one of the most under-rated Dallas Cowboys of all-time.  Everson Walls signed with the Cowboys as an un-drafted free agent in 1981.  That first season with Dallas, Walls would wind up starting in 12 of Dallas' 16 games.  All he did was lead the league in interceptions with 11, returned for 133 yards.

In his sophomore campaign with the Cowboys he once again led the league in INTs, this time with seven.

Walls had a long career with Dallas, spanning nine seasons.  In that time, he put up the following numbers:
  • 44 Interceptions
  • 3 Playoff Interceptions
  • 4-time Pro Bowl selection
  • 391 Interception return yards

Who Wears Number 6 in the NBA?

Number 6 is one of the least popular numbers in the NBA.  As of this post, there are only 12 players who wear number 6.  Among those 12 however, there are some spectacular athletes.

6 Sean Kilpatrick SG Brooklyn
6 Cristiano Felicio PF Chicago
6 Darrun Hilliard SF Detroit
6 Terrence Jones PF Houston

6 Jordan Clarkson PG LA Lakers
6 Mario Chalmers PG Memphis

I guess Knicks' management knew what they were doing when they drafted the young Latvian, heh?  He's on pace to break 1,000 points this season.

Also wearing number 6 is rebound machine DeAndre Jordan for the Los Angeles Clippers.  He's also quite good at dunking the rock:

Best Dallas Cowboy to Wear Number 23

23 is an interesting jersey number which could be worn by either a cornerback or a running back.  It's a very famous number, of course, because of the best basketball player to ever dunk a ball.

For the Dallas Cowboys, number 23 hasn't been quite as famous.  Of those to don the number, Tashard Choice is my pick for the best.

Choice was selected in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL draft, and saw quite a bit of time on the field in his rookie season with the Cowboys.  He got three starts and played in 16 games for the Cowboys, rushing for 472 yards and two touchdowns.  Choice also caught 21 passes for 185 yards.

In his sophomore campaign, playing primarily behind Felix Jones and Marian Barber, Choice's rushing attempts would actually decrease.  With 64 rushes, he notched 349 yards and found the end zone three times.

The 2010 season would see his rushing attempts tick up slightly, but his yards per carry decrease.  He remained with three touchdowns, and his receiving attempts were nearly flat.

In 2011, the Cowboys had drafted DeMarco Murray, and also had undrafted rookie Phillip Tanner on their squad.  Although Choice did have 28 carries for the team that season, he was eventually waived.  He would finish is Dallas career with 250 carries for 1,139 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Best Dallas Cowboy To Wear Number 21

Number 21 was worn for the Dallas Cowboys by "Neon" Deion Sanders, between the 1995 and 1999 NFL seasons.  Sanders wore number 21 throughout the majority of his NFL career, until its culmination with the Baltimore Ravens when he wore number 37.

Sanders signed as a free agent with the Dallas Cowboys in 1995, after spending several seasons with the Atlanta Falcons and one with the San Francisco 49ers.  While with the Cowboys, Sanders not only played his trademark style of defense where he was a "ball-hawk" picking off passes at an alarming rate for offensive coordinators, but he also saw significant time at wide receiver, as you'll see in the video below.

Sanders, of course, helped the Cowboys win the Super Bowl following the 1995 NFL season.  In the five seasons he spent with Dallas, Sanders racked up the following numbers:

  • 14 regular season interceptions

Who Wears Number 4 in the NBA?

For whatever reason, 4 doesn't seem to be a hugely popular number in the NBA.  That's not saying that there aren't some real good players who wear the number.  But with 15 athletes wearing the number in the league, number 4 doesn't seem to be as popular as number 3 for example.

Below is the list of NBA players who wear the number 4 as of this post.

4 Isaiah Thomas PG Boston
4 Paul Millsap PF Atlanta
4 Iman Shumpert SG Cleveland
4 Brandon Rush SF Golden State
4 J.J. Redick SG LA Clippers
4 Ryan Kelly PF LA Lakers
4 Josh McRoberts PF Miami

4 Nick Collison PF OKC
4 Elfrid Payton PG Orlando
4 Nerlens Noel PF 76ers
4 Tyson Chandler C Suns
4 Maurice Harkless SF Portland
4 Luis Scola PF Raptors

(Roster numbers courtesy of ESPN)

J.J. Reddick can surely hit the net from beyond the arc.

And this guy out of the University of Washington, who has scored more than 1,000 points in four of his last five seasons is a pretty good baller too.

What do you think?  Who's the best NBA player to wear the number 4 right now?  All-time, I'll tell ya that the best to wear number 4 in the NBA is this guy.

Best Dallas Cowboy To Wear Number 20

Mel Renfro played his entire NFL career for the Dallas Cowboys, while wearing number 20, spanning the 1964 through 1977 regular seasons.  As a rookie out the University of Oregon, having been drafted by the Dallas Cowboys 17th overall in 1964, Renfro immediately became a starter.

In 14 games as a rookie, Renfro shone with 7 interceptions, one of which was for a touchdown.  Statistically speaking, that would be one of Renfro's finest seasons.  In addition to his defensive prowess, he also returned kicks and punts, and led the league in both categories.  He fielded 32 punts for 418 yards and a TD, while taking 40 kicks for 1,017 yards.

In his second season with Dallas, he wasn't as prolific in interceptions, but did return one for 90 yards.  Same was true for his punt and kick returns in the amount he had, but did bring one back 100 yards for a TD.  Over time, Renfro's return duties would diminish as he focused on being a defensive back.  In 1969 he had his best season when he picked off 10 passes for 118 yards.

Over his long NFL career, spent entirely with the Dallas Cowboys, this fierce defender put up the following stats:

  • 52 Interceptions
  • 626 Interception Return Yards
  • 3 Interception TDs
  • 90 Yard Interception Return (Long)
  • 4 Playoff Interceptions
  • 109 Punt Returns
  • 842 Punt Return Yards
  • 85 Kick Returns
  • 2,246 Kick Return Yards
  • 2 Kick Return TDs
  • 100 Yard Kick Return (Long)
  • 10-time Pro Bowl selection
  • 2-time Super Bowl Champion
  • 1996 Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee
Did you know.......that Renfro was part of a world-record setting 440 yard relay team while at the University of Oregon?

Best Dallas Cowboy to Wear Number 19

There were several Cowboys to consider here, for the best to wear number 19 in Dallas.  Keyshawn Johnson was an excellent receiver, but didn't spend all that much time in Dallas.  The same could be said of Lance Rentzel.  At one point, he was the Cowboys best receiver on the team.  And Lance Alworth was another Cowboy who wore number 19, but was really more well known for his exploits on another NFL team.

So, in the end, when looking at all of the Cowboys to wear number 19, my choice for the best ever is Miles Austin.

Miles Austin joined the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Monmouth University in 2006.  He primarily returned kicks as a rookie, and he had one extremely long kick return of 93 yards for a touchdown in the playoffs against the Seattle Seahawks following the 2006 NFL season.  (Granted, when he was a rookie he was wearing number 14 instead of number 19).

The following season, 2007, saw Austin step up his receiving a bit, as he was targeted 10 times and caught the ball 5 times in the regular season, now wearing number 19.

Austin would be target 23 times the following season, when he also scored 3 receiving touchdowns.  It was 2009 however that saw Austin have his breakout season.  He totalled a very impressive 1,320 receiving yards on 81 receptions to go along with 11 touchdowns in his best year in the league.  He also had 11 receptions for 116 yards and a TD in the two playoff games he played that season.  Needless to say he was a Pro Bowl selection that year.

He would also be a Pro Bowl selection the following year, 2010, when he once again surpassed 1,000 yards receiving and hauled in 7 TD passes.  Although he would have some further success with Dallas, 2009 and 2010 would be his two best seasons.

In total, through eight years with the Cowboys, Austin caught for 4,481 yards and 34 TDs in the regular season.

Chris Boniol kicked for the Dallas Cowboys, wearing number 18, between the seasons of 1994 and 1996.  The Louisiana native made 22 of 29 field goals for the Cowboys as a rookie.  He was also
perfect from extra point range, going 48 of 48.

The following season all Boniol did was lead the NFL in field goal percentage with 96.4%.  He made 27 of 28 field goal attempts.  Interestingly, Boniol also punted twice that season for a total of 77 yards.

After that 1995 season, Boniol would help kick the Dallas Cowboys to the Super Bowl championship.  During that run, he would be perfect in extra points and made 6 of 7 field goals.

Boniol would spend one more season with Dallas, attempting 36 field goals and making 32.  In the playoffs following that season, Boniol was perfect in both extra points and field goals (4 of 4 and 7 of 7).

Who Wears Number 3 In The NBA?

We've seen some big players who wear number 0 (and 00), number 1 and number 2 in the NBA.  But we've certainly got a mega-star who wears number 3.  Unless their name is LeBron or Kobe, players just don't get much more famous than Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat (although he may not yet be the best to ever wear the number 3 in the NBA).  

So we've got D-Wade wearing number 3, but who else is there?  Take a look below.

3 Jeremy Lamb SG Charlotte
3 Doug McDermott SF Chicago
3 Charlie Villanueva PF Dallas
3 Mike Miller SG Denver
3 Stanley Johnson SF Detroit
3 Ty Lawson PG Houston
3 George Hill PG Indiana
3 Chris Paul PG LA Clippers
3 Anthony Brown SF LA Lakers
3 Jordan Adams SG Memphis
3 Dwyane Wade SG Miami
3 O.J. Mayo SG Milwaukee
3 Omer Asik C New Orleans
3 Jose Calderon PG NY
3 Dion Waiters SG OKC
3 Dewayne Dedmon C Orlando
3 Brandon Knight PG Suns
3 C.J. McCollum SG Portland
3 Marco Belinelli SG Kings
3 James Johnson PF Raptors
3 Trey Burke PG Jazz
3 Bradley Beal SG Wizards
Yeah, so how about that Chris Paul guy?  I'm pretty sure he's one of the best point guards in the league.......if not the best.  

There are some other fine players on this list who wear number 3 as well.  Brandon Knight, Dion Waiters, George Hill and Jose Calderon just to name a few.  But you gotta say that outside of Dwayne Wade, Chris Paul is the best to wear number 3 on the list.

Best Dallas Cowboy To Wear Number 17

Wearing jersey number 17 for the Dallas Cowboys between the 1960 and 1968 NFL seasons, Don Meredith would establish himself as one of the best quarterbacks in Dallas history.

Nicknamed "Dandy Don", Meredith played his college ball at Southern Methodist University.  Prior to the 1960 NFL draft, he signed a professional services contract with a company owned by Clint Murchison, who also owned the Dallas Cowboys franchise (yet to be named as such).  Although Meredith was drafted by the Chicago Bears, the contract he signed with the company owned by Murchison was honored and he joined the Dallas Cowboys.  

As a rookie, he saw six games of action with Dallas in 1960, throwing for 281 yards and two TDs for the fledgling Cowboys.  In his second season, Meredith would start in four games, throwing for 1,161 yards and 9 touchdowns.  

His numbers would continue to improve over the next two seasons, as would the record of the Dallas Cowboys.  

1966 would be his finest year as a Dallas Cowboy.  He threw for 2,805 yards and 24 touchdowns that season, en route to a Pro Bowl selection.  Meredith also led the league in yards per completion that season, and guided the Cowboys to the playoffs.  

The next two seasons would see performances worthy of Pro Bowl selection as well.  He threw for 16 and 21 touchdowns in those seasons respectively.  He also led Dallas to the NFL championship on December 31, 1967 in which they ultimately lost to the Green Bay Packers in what is commonly referred to as the "Ice Bowl".  

Meredith retired after the 1968 NFL season, in a relatively short professional football career for such a talented athlete. In his nine seasons with the Cowboys, Meredith put up the following numbers:
  • 17,199 regular season passing yards
  • 135 regular season passing TDs
  • 165.4 passing yards per game
  • 7.5 yards per pass attempt
  • 1966 NFL player of the year
  • 3-time Pro Bowl selection
  • 1976 Cowboys Ring of Honor Inductee
Did you know..............that in addition to broadcasting NFL games after his playing days, Meredith was also an actor?

Who Wears Number 2 In The NBA?

Okay, so we've now looked at who wears the number 0 (and 00), and number 1 in the NBA.  Now, let's take a look at who wears number 2.  And there really aren't that many NBA athletes who wear number 2.  Not as many as you might think anyway.  12 of them in total, right now.  Here they are:

2 Jarrett Jack PG Brooklyn
2 Marvin Williams PF Charlotte
2 Kyrie Irving PG Cleveland
2 Raymond Felton PG Dallas
2 Patrick Beverley PG Houston
2 Rodney Stuckey PG Indiana
2 Brandon Bass PF LA Lakers
2 Langston Galloway SG NY
2 Anthony Morrow SG OKC
2 Eric Bledsoe PG Suns
2 Joe Ingles SF Jazz
2 John Wall PG Wizards

There are two really big names that stand out on this list.  The rest of the players are no slouches for sure.  But the two best NBA athletes on this list of players who wear the number 2, are Kyrie Irving and John Wall.  

Check out the best ten plays of Kyrie Irving's career right here:

And here's some highlights from the other "best" number 2 in the NBA, John Wall, from the 2014-15 season:

Best Dallas Cowboy To Wear Number 16

Selected in round number five of the 1984 NFL draft out of the University of Washington, Steve Pelluer served as the third string quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys in his first two seasons with the

Pelluer would become the primary backup for Danny White in 1986.  White was injured in week nine, and Pelluer filled in as the starting QB for the remainder of the season.  He threw for 2,727 yards and eight touchdowns, with 7.2 yards per attempt.

The following season would see Pelluer start four games and put up a 2-2 record.  He threw for 642 yards and three TDs in the 1987 season.

In 1988 Pelluer started the majority of the regular season games for the Cowboys.  He threw for 3,139 yards and 17 TDs as the Cowboys put up a 3-11 record in his 14 starts that season.

The next season, with Troy Aikman and Steve Walsh in town, Pelluer was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Did you know........that Pelluer was the last Cowboys quarterback to start and win a game for coach Tom Landry with Dallas?

Best Dallas Cowboy To Wear Number 15

Wearing number 15 for the Dallas Cowboys beginning in 1971, Toni Fritsch was an Austrian born kicker for the silver and blue. The former soccer player could really boot the ball.

Although he split kicking duties with Mike Clark, he did get his share of time on the field for Dallas.  During the 1972 regular season he kicked 21 field goals.  He was also a member of the Dallas Cowboys team that won Super Bowl VI over the Miami Dolphins.

1973 saw Fritsch lead the league with an impressive 43 extra point attempts, and 100% conversion rate.

An injury sidelined Fritsch for the 1974 season.  He was back on the field in 1975 however, leading the league in field goals with 22.  Following that season, in 1976, Fritsch was traded to the San Diego Chargers.

Who Wears Number 1 In The NBA?

Following on my last post looking at which NBA players wear the number 0, or 00, let's now take a look at who is wearing number 1 in the NBA.  As of this post, there are 18 players wearing number 1 in the NBA.  Here they are:

1 Chris McCullough PF Brooklyn
1 Derrick Rose PG Chicago
1 James Jones SG Cleveland
1 Justin Anderson SG Dallas
1 Jameer Nelson PG Denver
1 Reggie Jackson PG Detroit
1 Jason Thompson PF Golden State
1 Trevor Ariza SF Houston
1 Joe Young PG Indiana
1 Lance Stephenson SF LA Clippers
1 D'Angelo Russell PG LA Lakers
1 Chris Bosh PF Miami
1 Tyus Jones PG Minnesota
1 Tyreke Evans SG New Orleans
1 Kevin Seraphin C NY
1 Ish Smith PG 76ers
1 Devin Booker SG Suns
1 Jared Dudley SF Wizards

(Roster numbers courtesy of ESPN)

The names on this list may not have the same All-Star caliber as the ones to wear number 0 or 00.  But there are certainly some superstar players here.  How about power forward Chris Bosh?  Check out some of his best plays here:

And we can't forget point guard Derrick Rose.  Check out some of Rose's best plays, before he had his knee injury:

And this guy may only be a rookie, but he can ball.  Check out game highlights from former Ohio State Buckeye and current Los Angeles Laker D'Angelo Russell.

So there's certainly some studs wearing number 1 right now in the NBA.  If I'm comparing the number 0 (and 00) to the number 1 though, I gotta go with 0 right now, as the number to have the best (or better) NBA athletes wearing it, overall.

Best Dallas Cowboy To Wear Number 14

Wearing number 14 for the Cowboys between the seasons of 1965 and 1974, Craig Morton was one of the most prolific quarterbacks that Dallas has had.  During a time when players would routinely get drafted by both AFL and NFL teams, Morton had just that happen to him.  The Cowboys selected him fifth overall in the 1965 NFL draft, while the Oakland Raiders took him with pick number 75.

Of course, he chose to sign with the Dallas Cowboys and would start one game as a rookie.  He primarily backed up starting quarterback Don Meredith.  As a rook, he threw for 175 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Morton continued to back up Meredith over the next three seasons, getting a spot start here or there.  1967 actually saw him throw for almost 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns while starting in three games.

After Don Meredith retired, Morton became the starter at QB for the Cowboys in 1969.  And he had a terrific first year as the starter.  He led the league in average yards per attempt and average yards per completion.  He had a 10-2-1 record, throwing for 2,619 yards and 21 touchdowns.

After the 1970 season, Morton led the Cowboys to Super Bowl V, which was dropped to the Baltimore Colts 16-13.

The following season saw Tom Landry alternate quarterbacks between Morton and number 12, Roger Staubach, and eventually Staubach would wrest the starting position from Morton.

In all, Morton would play for Dallas over ten NFL seasons, throwing for 10,279 yards and 80 touchdowns in the regular season.

Who Wears Number 0 In The NBA?

Number 0 isn't a number you see worn in all sports.  For example, in hockey, I can't recall number 0 ever being worn.  But in basketball, and in the NBA in particular, it's another story.  Number 0 is relatively popular.  So which players are currently wearing number 0?  As of early 2016, here are your NBA athletes who sport either the jersey number 0 or the number 00.

0 Aaron Brooks PG Chicago
00 Aaron Gordon PF Orlando
0 Andre Drummond C Detroit
0 Avery Bradley PG Boston
0 C.J. Miles SF Indiana
0 Damian Lillard PG Portland
00 Darrell Arthur PF Denver
0 Emmanuel Mudiay PG Denver
0 Isaiah Canaan PG 76ers
0 JaMychal Green PF Memphis
0 Jeff Teague PG Atlanta
0 Josh Richardson SG Miami
0 Kevin Love PF Cleveland
0 Nick Young SF LA Lakers
0 Orlando Johnson SG Suns
0 Russell Westbrook PG OKC
0 Shane Larkin PG Brooklyn
00 Spencer Hawes PF Charlotte
00 Willie Cauley-Stein C Kings

(Roster numbers courtesy of ESPN)

There are some big names on here too (literally and figuratively).  How bout Mr. Kevin Love?

And then, of course, there is all-world point guard Russell Westbrook.  This man can flat out play the game.

Let's not forget the NBA Rookie of the Year from 2013, Damian Lillard.  Number 0 for Portland put up 1,562 points as a rookie.   That was good for number 9 overall in the league, in points scored.

And then there's number 6 overall draft pick in the 2015 NBA draft, Willie Cauley-Stein, wearing number 00.

So, what do you say?  Who's the best to wear number 0 or number 00?

Best Dallas Cowboy To Wear Number 13

Number 13 has not been a popular jersey number with the Dallas Cowboys.  Of the few to wear the number, Jerry Rhome is the best.

Rhome was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the 1964 NFL draft, while he was still a junior at Tulsa.  He joined the Dallas Cowboys in 1965.

Serving as primarily a backup quarterback to Don Meredith and Craig Morton, Rhome would suit up over four seasons for the Cowboys, wearing number 13.

In those four seasons, Rhome would throw for 496 yards and one touchdown.

Best Dallas Cowboy To Wear Number 12

He could likely be considered the best NFL player to ever wear the number 12.  And maybe even the best professional athlete to ever wear the number 12.  But he certainly is the best Dallas Cowboy to ever wear the number 12.

Roger Staubach, although drafted in 1964 by the Dallas Cowboys, didn't begin playing with the team until 1969 due to military obligations.  Staubach was enrolled in the Naval Academy when he won the Heisman Trophy in 1963.  After graduating the Naval Academy, Staubach spent time in Vietnam and then finished out his service to the country in the U.S.

He would begin his Dallas Cowboys' career in 1969, when he started one game for the Cowboys.  1970 would see him up that number to three games, although he backed up Craig Morton for the majority of the games.

1971 was Staubach's breakout season, when he started 10 games, passing for 15 touchdowns and led the league with 8.9 yards per pass attempt.  That was the same year, of course, that Staubach led the Cowboys to the Super Bowl.  Staubach passed for 321 yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions in those playoffs.  In the big game, he passed for 119 yards and 2 touchdowns.

1972 saw Staubach miss most of the season with a separated shoulder.  He did get back onto the field in the playoffs following that season however, when he threw for 272 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Staubach, now entrenched as the Cowboys' starter, would continue to have great success in his career.  He would lead Dallas to the playoffs in all but one of his seasons at the helm (1974).

1977 would see Staubach lead Dallas to Super Bowl Championship number two for them.  During those playoffs, Staubach would complete 60.7% of his passes, throwing for 482 yards.

Here are some of Staubach's career numbers with the Cowboys:

  • 6-time Pro Bowl selection
  • 173.3 passing yards per game
  • 153 passing TDs
  • 2-time Super Bowl Champion
  • 7.7 yards per pass attempt
  • 22,700 passing yards
  • 83.4 passer rating
  • 1,685 passes completed
  • 24 playoff passing touchdowns
Staubach was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985.

Did you know....................the Naval Academy retired Staubach's jersey number 12 right after his senior season?
