The Warriors play the Lakers Monday night in Los Angeles.
With the Lakers at 10-17 and currently owning the 11-seed in the Western Conference, this would seem like just any other game. Grabbing a ticket, however, will be nearly impossible.
The Lakers are honoring Kobe Bryant that night at Staples Center. Bryant will have both No. 8 and No. 24 retired by the team he spent his entire 20-year career.
Kevin Durant has worn the same jersey number his entire 11-year NBA career. He first started sporting No. 35 his one and only season at the University of Texas.
"To have two numbers retired, it had me thinking, damn, that'd be cool," Durant said to Anthony Slater of The Athletic. "I got another favorite number that I like."
Durant then revealed his other favorite number to be 11. But, that's off limits in Golden State.
"I can't get that here," Durant continued saying.
Klay Thompson has worn No. 11 throughout his seven-year career with the Warriors. He did wear No. 1 at Washington State though, so maybe Durant has a chance to do his own Kobe impression one day.
