5 NBA players (including Russell Westbrook) are presently wearing the number 0 jersey.

Some NBA numbers are memorable. To honor the late Bill Russell, the number 6 was retired throughout the league. Seven players were allowed to keep the number prior to retirement. 

Of course, the number 23 is another well-known basketball jersey number. Michael Jordan made the number 23 popular, and LeBron James has carried on the tradition. 

Let's look at another popular jersey number: zero. Here are the top five players in the league that are presently wearing the number zero. This could be the league's greatest number this season. 

Westbrook was a strong advocate for the zero jersey number. Westbrook is productive despite not playing at his previous MVP level. He was demoted to the bench and is now the backup point guard for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Lillard is also a member of the zero jersey gang. In his new home of Milwaukee, he has struggled to match his Portland level of play. Despite hitting 35.1 percent from outside the arc this season, the veteran remains one of the finest shooters in the game.

This season, Maxey is averaging 27.0 points per game and 6.7 assists per game. His shooting percentages are very remarkable (47.0/40.7/89.8). This season, he has scored at least 30 points seven times. This includes his November 50-point outburst against the Indiana Pacers.

Tatum is another brilliant young star who is dressed in a size zero. At only 25 years old, he is in the top division of the league. He remains the top scoring option on a stacked Celtics offense. Tatum is averaging 27.4 points per game, 8.8 rebounds per game, and 4.2 assists per game while hitting 49.1 percent of his shots. 

Jayson Tatum

This season, Haliburton has also made the zero jersey number shine, leading the Pacers to the finals of the NBA In-Season Tournament. Haliburton leads the league with 12.3 apg while also averaging 26.3 ppg. His scoring is as efficient as ever, with a 52.1 percent field goal percentage and a 44.3 percent 3-point percentage.
