2008-09 Greg Oden game worn jersey. In 2006, Steve Kerr described Oden as a "once-in-a-decade player". Kerr was eerily prescient as Oden easily wound up being the biggest NBA draft bust in well over a decade. Even more painful is that Portland passed over Kevin Durant to get Oden. . . . . . . . #gregoden #pdx #pdxlife #portland #portlandlife #ilovepdx #iloveportland #portlandoregon #portlandor #portlandtrailblazers #trailblazers #blazers #blazersnation #damedolla #dametime #gameworn #gameused #nbaplayoffs #nba🏀 #nbanews #nbamemes #nbafinals #nbadraft #draftpick #modacenter #letsgoblazers #goblazers #ripcity #ripcitybaby #bball

1980s Tom Chambers game worn San Diego Clippers uniform. Nautical flags on the shorts! The franchise began in New York as the Buffalo Braves, one of three NBA expansion franchises that began play in the 1970–71 season, along with the Portland Trail Blazers and Cleveland Cavaliers. In 1978, San Diego welcomed the relocation of the Braves because the city had lost their Rockets to Houston seven years earlier. San Diego team officials did not think Braves was a representative nickname for the club and a contest decided on "Clippers," because the city was known for the great sailing ships that passed through San Diego Bay. When the Clippers moved to Los Angeles in 1984, they kept their nickname. . . . . . . . #sandiego #la #sd #sdlife #sandiegolife #laclippers #ilovesd #ilovesandiego #losangeles #losangelesclippers #gameworn #gameused #vintagejersey #retro #80s #clippers #ilovela #ilovelosangeles #lalife #losangeleslife #vintage #throwback #throwbackjersey #clippernation #lobcity #clippersnation #clippersgame #nbahistory #goclippers #letsgoclippers

1970s Mark Fidrych game worn jersey. Yankees' Graig Nettles tells of an at-bat against Fidrych, who, as usual, was talking to the ball before pitching to Nettles. Immediately, Nettles jumped out of the batter's box and started talking to his bat. He said, "Never mind what he says to the ball. You just hit it over the outfield fence!" . . . . . . #markfidrych #detroit #detroithustlesharder #detroithustle #tigerstadium #comericapark #detroittigers #detroittigersbaseball #gotigers #tigersnation #tigersbaseball #motown #motorcity #ilovedetroit #detroitlife #gameworn #gameused #letsgotigers #aprilinthed #70s #detroitvseverybody #detroitpride

2012 Matt Bush game worn jersey. Clearly jealous over all of the glory that fell upon the Chargers when they drafted the biggest bust in NFL history, the Padres tried to shit the bed even harder by drafting Bush as the #1 pick in the 2004 Draft. In doing so, they bypassed Justin Verlander, Dustin Pedroia, Hunter Pence, Jered Weaver, Mark Trumbo, David Price, Chris Davis and Jake Arrieta. Well done, @Padres! Champagne and cigars for whoever assembled those scouting reports! #winning Bush promptly rewarded the Padres by going on a tear that included beating a lacrosse player with a golf club while screaming "I'm Matt fucking Bush!", assaulting a woman at a party, 2 counts of DUI with property damage, 1 count of DUI with serious bodily injury, 1 count of leaving the scene of an accident, 1 count of driving with a suspended license and 1 count of getting kicked out of a strip joint because he tried to climb on stage. Or as Matt Bush summarized it, Thursday. Sentenced to 51 months in prison, Bush was released in 2015 and one guess which halfway house signed him; @rangers , who were so thrilled with the first alcoholic that Tampa Bay sent them, they decided to go 2-for-2. Maybe just cut out TB entirely and send scouts to AA meetings?. I wonder how many of us would land a 6 figure job right after getting out of the clink. . . . . . . #mattbush #texasrangers #rangersbaseball #sandiego #sd #sdpadres #sandiegopadres #draftpick #mlbdraft #padres #tampa #tampabay #tampabayrays #devilrays #tbrays #drunk #gameworn #gameused #alcoholic #dui #wasted #baseball #tropicanafield #globelifepark #prison #jail #fail #wastedtalent

1985 Sam Bowie game worn jersey. Forever known as the man drafted ahead of Michael Jordan. But forget Jordan for a second. The Blazers also chose to draft Bowie over Charles Barkley and John Stockton. Bowie says that even while sitting among his draft class on that night, he knew "deep down inside I physically wasn't what these guys were." . . . . . . #sambowie #kentucky #universityofkentucky #kentuckybasketball #kentuckywildcats #portland #ripcity #ripcitybaby #blazers #trailblazers #portlandtrailblazers #blazersnation #gameused #gameworn #nbadraft #nbaplayoffs #nbafinals #blazernation #blazerswin #blazersgame #pdx #portlandoregon #dametime #letsgoblazers #portlandlife #iloveportland #modacenter #pdxlife #damedolla

1997 Juan Gonzalez game worn jersey. Gonzalez’s comments about the Mitchell Report: “What does Mitchell know about baseball? He never played baseball." If they put Rodriguez in the Hall, then why not Igor? . . . . . . #juangonzalez #homerun #steroids #hgh #deepintheheartoftexas #arlingtontx #ballpark #ballplayer #americaspasttime #peanutsandcrackerjacks #txrangers #texasrangers #alwest #mlbnews #mlbstandings #mlbmemes #jerseys #baseballjersey #lonestar #lonestarstate #ilovetx #ilovetexas #texaslife #texan #majorleagues #beisbol #puertorican
