It’s a slow news day, sorry guys.
Marco Belinelli announced via his Instagram account, that he will be wearing #3 for the San Antonio Spurs this upcoming season.

Belinelli wearing #3 for the Spurs means everyone’s going to have to put their Stephen Jackson jerseys and shirts back in the closet, and for us, it means plenty of “B3LIN3LLI” tweets during the regular season. Belinelli wasn’t allowed to get his patented #8 with the Spurs, thanks to All-Star Towel Waver, Patty Mills, exercising his player option to stay with San Antonio for this season.
The 27-year-old guard from Italy officially signed his two-year contract with the Spurs last Thursday, after spending last season coming off the bench for the Chicago Bulls.
