Jersey Monday: Corey Maggette

Unlike my NFL collection, my NBA jersey collection isn't really "complete." There are seven teams -- the Bobcats, Pistons, Warriors, Grizzlies, Hornets, Raptors and Jazz -- for whom I don't have a jersey (8 if you don't count the Sonics as representing the Thunder).

But even with that being the case, most of my recent NBA jersey purchases have involved updating a team I already have, rather than filling a need, and that will likely be the case when I get a new Clippers jersey to replace this Corey Maggette on, which is currently my only representative of "Lob City".

Maggette spent eight seasons with the Clippers, and I got this jersey toward the end of his stint with the team (as tends to be my luck with jerseys). This is now his fourth season since leaving LA, first for Golden State, then Milwaukee, then Charlotte, so it could be argued that if I was a bigger Corey Maggette fan, my NBA jersey collection would be slightly more complete. As it is, I can't really rock a Maggette Clipper jersey when it's four teams old and LA has Chris Paul and Blake Griffin on the team.

Jersey Monday will continue every Monday until I run out of jerseys to spotlight. And since I’ve got more than 190 of them, that could be awhile.
