What’s with the jersey number you might wonder, and why do players hold on to superstition? Superstition with numbers comes with any game, and you can’t leave basketball players far behind in this. The power of numbers is not known, but is somehow limitless. In the glamorous sport of basketball, referees, coaches, players, fans etc are all superstitious about jersey numbers. Infact, in most cases the player’s jersey numbers have become synonymous with the player’s themselves.
Although the NBA has never mandated the number ruling game like how it is outside the organization, it is primarily used to associate the player with the scoring tables. However, most players are superstitious about particular numbers, for instance they probably would have played their best games with a certain number and therefore make it a number through which they are associated with.
