Lakers Retire Shaq’s Jersey Backwards

12

Did anyone notice something a little bit off during Shaq’s jersey retirement at Staples Center last night? It appears that his No. 34 jersey that will hang from the rafters of Staples for quite some time is…well, backwards. The V-neck only appears in the front of the uniform worn by players, as you can see below. However, the jersey that was unveiled last night has a V-neck in the back of the jersey for some reason. Whoops.

UPDATE: Lakers admit the mistake in Shaquille O’Neal’s retired jersey, via Los Angeles Times:

“The oversight will be corrected and a new jersey put up as soon as possible,” Lakers spokesman John Black said Wednesday.
