The Nets have posted the full list of uniform numbers and only real news is that Andray Blatche has chosen "0." Looks like his way of starting over from scratch. Will it remind people of his relationship with the player most associated with that number (numeral?), his former teammate Gilbert Arenas, "Agent Zero?" Arenas got Blatche into trouble more than once.

Also, the rumor that Marshon Brooks had switched his number from "9" to "2" is unfounded. He's staying at "9" says the roster. Josh Childress, who's always worn "1" in his career, has switched to "2." C.J. Watson had already grabbed "1." Joe Johnson, as was known, is "7," Mirza Teletovic has switched from his long time Euro number, "12," to "33." Toko Shengelia will wear "20" and Reggie Evans "30." Keith Bogans has chosen "10." Jerry Stackhouse will continue to honor his hero, Jackie Robinson, by wearing "42" which now has special significance in Brooklyn. Anyone think Tyshawn Taylor wasn't offended by being taken #41 the second round? He chose "41" as his number.

Now all we need is the new uniforms where these numbers will be shown!
