Kent Bazemore has ESPN player ranking from 2012 sewn into his sneakers

Back in the grand year that was 2012, ESPN put together a list of the top 500 players in the NBA and decided to list Kent Bazemore as the 499th best player in the league.

As you might figure, Bazemore took that ranking to heart and had the number sewn into the sneakers that he wore at the Las Vegas Summer League:

Kent Bazemore 499

After his solid numbers last season and his break-out Summer League, I’m pretty sure that ESPN will be moving him up the list.
