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.)
