Kuminga to be Warriors rarity by wearing jersey number 00

Warriors

It's been just a few hours since Jonathan Kuminga was drafted by the Warriors with the No. 7 overall pick in the draft, and the rookie is already making history for Golden State. 

Kuminga will begin his NBA career dawning a jersey with double zeroes on the back. 

The 18-year old forward will join just two other Warriors players in franchise history to have ever worn jersey number 00. 

Hall of Famer Robert Parish and 10-year veteran Tony Delk are the two other players to wear 00 for the Warriors.

Delk was with the Warriors for a season and a half, while Parish only played for Golden State for the first four years of his incredible 14-year career. 

If Kuminga were to stick around with the Warriors for a while, the 00 may eventually be synonymous with himself.
