Los Angeles Lakers point guard Isaiah Thomas is switching numbers. Apparently, No. 7 wasn’t good enough, so he is making the change to No. 3.

Sorry to anyone who bought a No. 7 jersey when Thomas first became a member of the Lakers after coming over via trade from the Cleveland Cavaliers. But perhaps Lamar Odom is happier now?

Matthew Schmidt is a life-long sports fan who was born and raised in New Jersey, which makes the fact that he is a Celtics and Marlins fan kind of peculiar. Don't worry; he likes the Giants in football, so his New Jersey roots have not been completely tarnished. You can also find his work at Bleacher Report and Baseline Banter.
