Do you know why Tracy McGrady decided to wear #3 after being traded to the Knicks last week?
Well, as it turns out, the former Houston Rockets star -- who wore #1 earlier in his career -- switched his jersey digit while he was still playing for the Rockets back in 2007 (you may not have noticed; McGrady's been battled an injury or two over the last few years). The change was made to draw attention to a documentary T-Mac released called 3 Points, which chronicled his efforts to raise funds for schools in Darfur...
Annnnnd... since the Darfur Dream Team is still recruiting athletes and celebrities to support the cause in Darfur, it makes sense that T-Mac would stick with his new number, no?
Well now that you know, what are you waiting for??? Show some love for T-Mac and the Knicks (well... maybe not the Knicks) by scooping up his new jersey!
PS - Bonus DEN points for the first person that can tell me who was the last player to wear #3 for the New York Knicks.
The Tracy McGrady New York Knicks jersey retails for $49.99, and can be found at NBAStore.com.
