There’s been plenty of talk about Kentucky basketball and its use of the blue-and-white checkerboard on its uniforms, but former Cat Wenyen Gabriel’s G League team has probably taken uniform design to a realm never imagined.
To celebrate its mascot Dunkson’s birthday, the Stockton (Calif.) Kings donned pizza-party themed uniforms. And when we say pizza uniforms, we mean shoulder-to-knee pepperoni pizza.
The unsettling sight didn’t harm Gabriel’s play, apparently as he put down a reverse dunk in transition that got highlighted and posted on Twitter by the league.
Gabriel averages 10.1 points, 6.8 rebounds and a block per game for Stockton. He had 14 points and eight boards Sunday in the 126-115 win over the Memphis Hustle. Stockton is fourth in the G League’s Western Conference.
