Alexis Ajinca is looking for a new jersey number, and he’s turning to his Facebook followers to help. It seems Ajinca won’t be wearing the #21 he has donned for Team France in international play and for the Charlotte Bobcats over two seasons when he joins the Dallas Mavericks for 2010-11.
BallinEurope isn’t sure why Ajinca’s changing the familiar 21 after coming over to the Mavs along with Team USA’s Tyson Chandler, but is happy that he’s applying new democratic technology in the decision-making process. (Maybe LeBron should have put the question out there before deciding to take his talents elsewhere…)
Reads the appeal from Alexis:
“Hello Facebook Fam! I need you! What number do you recommend for my shirt this season? give me your opinion / Salut Facebook Familly j’ai besoin de vous! Quel numéro me conseillez vous cette saison pour mon maillot? donnez moi votre avis”
If you’re already a facebooker, just “friend” up with the “Official Fan Page of Alexis Ajinca.” If you’re not on the ‘Book – trust me, BiE doesn’t blame you; it’s a time-sucker – leave a suggestion and reasoning in the comments field below.
Personally, BallinEurope thinks Ajinca should just go for something totally wacky that’s never been seen on an NBA court before, like 99. But what do you say…?
