Duckworth honored with memorial jersey stripe


At media day this afternoon, the Portland Trail Blazers will introduce a memorial stripe on their jerseys which will be worn during the 2008-09 season in honor of the late Kevin Duckworth. The team will also wear a patch on its warm-ups and shooting shirts.

All three uniforms (home, road, alternative) will feature a black stripe with a white “00” stitched into the upper left shoulder of the jersey. The black patch on the warm-ups and shooting shirts will read “DUCK” in red and “00” below it in white. (See example above. Click image for larger version.)

Is there a chance to team will sell arm bands to the fans? I would like a "Duck 00" arm band to wear.

If there's a moment of silence i think it should end with an old favorite- the duck call.

but i agree...the "00" bands should be available to the public too

They should sell the "DUCK 00" to raise money for the memorial scholarship fund !!! Tell Larry Miller to get on it!
